OHIO TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS - UPDATE & LOCATION CHANGE
***For all Tournament Information, as well as to register, go to: www.ohiotofc.com
For those that have inquired, YES, we still are planning on running the Ohio Tournament of Champions on April 24. Unfortunately, the event will not take place in Columbus, OH, due to the current health regulations in place and also being informed, by the Ohio Expo Center, that the likelihood of being able to run the event there, this year, is doubtful at best. In addition, the State of Ohio has already commandeered our main Wrestling Venue for the event, thru June, despite our having a signed contract for it. However, we have signed a contract with a brand new facility: The Highlands Sports Complex, in Triadelphia, WV (about 8 miles East of Wheeling, WV - right off Interstate 70) and will be hosting the event on their indoor football field.
The schedule for the event will be as follows:
April 23 - All weigh ins for the Individual Tournament April 24 - Individual Tournament, as well as weigh ins for those participating in the Dual Meet Tournament only (Note: if a wrestler is participating in the Individual Tournament, as well as the Dual Meet Tournament, their Friday night weigh in will suffice). April 25 - Dual Meet Tournament - More info can be found here: https://ohiotofc.com/page/31-team-duals
***Note: Our goal is to run the Dual Meet event at an extremely small profit margin - basically just enough so that we make sure we are not losing money on the venture. It would be run as a THANK YOU, for those that participate in the Individual Event. Those wrestlers that choose to wrestle in the Dual Meet Event only will be subject to an additional fee, in order to participate, which would be payable at weigh ins on Saturday evening.

We also do still plan on having Club/Team Awards during the Individual Event as well, so we encourage Clubs & Teams to sign up for the at competition thru our site, as there is no fee to do so.
A link to book hotels should be up on our site very soon. In addition to many local hotels, there area great number of restaurants and shops, all within the immediate vicinity. Also, the Payment Link on our site should be operational now and our entry fee will also be returned to $70 ($50 for additional family members, as well as those entering either the Girl's or Open Divisions). As in the past, we will continue with our policy of FREE ADMISSION and No Coaches Cards required. Also, should the event end up having to be cancelled, due to health restrictions, FULL refunds will be given.
