Weigh-ins will be at 2:00 PM with wrestling starting at 4:00 PM. We will once again run 13 simultaneous mats for the tournament. Mat 1 will again be the feature mat and will be on a raised platform. We will try to put the notable and highly anticipated matches on the feature mat. We anticipate being finished by 10:00 PM Friday evening.
The second session will begin at 8:30 AM, Saturday morning with weigh-ins at 7:30am. This session will have bracket matches in the Gold and Silver Brackets with the same mat setup. We will take a 45 minute lunch break sometime close to noon to allow our workers a little break. During this session we will wrestle the Silver Bracket to its’ conclusion and the Gold Bracket up to the medal matches.
This session will be immediately followed by the third session consisting of all the place matches in the Gold Bracket being wrestled simultaneously on four mats. We will wrestle the finals on the raised feature mat. We estimate these matches to begin about 6pm.
