OK, I hunted around on the tournament website and found that this actually happened last summer (bummer). So I’m wondering if they’re going to do it again this year. It’d be great to hear from the organizers, just shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The tournament is sponsored by a foundation dedicated to the memory of Eric Monday, a former VYI and James Madison High School wrestler.
[Monday] passed away at the age of 22. He is sorely missed by family, friends, and teammates. Eric was passionate about wrestling. Following high school, he attended Washington & Jefferson College where he was a leader of the wrestling team and amassed the school’s second all-time best season win record.
The Eric Monday Memorial Foundation was established to honor Eric’s passion for wrestling. The foundation provides aspiring youth and high school wrestlers greater access to clinics, camps and tournaments. Eric was a good friend to all. He brightened the lives of his teammates and others with his playful humor, spontaneous energy and adventurous spirit.
The registration form is here.
