Goodhue Jaycees Tournament
The ZM Wrestling program will be by paying for any ZM youth wrestler’s entry fee to the Jaycees tournament in Goodhue on Saturday, March 8th. This is our way of saying thank you to our youth families for their fundraising and volunteer efforts this past year. There will be a sign-in sheet for ZM wrestlers only at the registration table in Goodhue the day of the tournament. We will use this sheet to know how many of our kids are present that day so we can pay them with one check. Please bring your own registration form to the tournament or fill one out on site. Make sure you tell the registration workers you are from ZM and write your wrestler’s name on the sheet so we get an accurate count. We encourage each wrestler in the program to take advantage of this great opportunity!
