This is a final message to encourage wrestlers to enter and compete at this year's 25th Anniversary Ohio Tournament of Champions, which will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the Columbus Convention Center, in Columbus, OH. Entries from 30 States and Canada are already entered. Remember, the top 5 Regions that do the best, based upon their top 25 place finishers, will win cash grants from $500-$2500, to directly benefit wrestling in that Region. Every wrestler is a potential scorer for their Region.

Projections are indicating anywhere from 2500-2800 wrestlers. This is based on the following:
Current entries: will be more than 1500 by the end of today - which is right in line with where we were last year. Last year, we had 946 register the final three days, including 499 on the final day, and are expecting more to do so this year, as we are running at a 20% higher rate of entry this week.
Submissions (those that have either pre-registered, and not yet paid + those that have registered and paid) are currently up more than 250 wrestlers (15%), over last year.
Special Guests this year include: Frank Jasper, Shute, from the movie "Vision Quest."
