Countdown is on…the 45th East West Wrestling Tournament and the Wrestling Reunion in New Salem is just days away. Who’s ready to take a trip down memory lane? If anyone has wrestling uniforms prior to the 80’s, please bring to put on display.
Reminder: If you were part of a New Salem wrestling team from the first 10 years (1963-1973), please reach out to Theresa Moravec or Joanne Beckman to RSVP as soon as possible if planning to attend the tournament so we can make enough accommodations for seating.
