Special thanks go out to these individuals who attended our last meeting, where we held our volunteer executive board elections for the following members: Paul Fenley (president), Rick Stewart (vice president), and Matt Powell (secretary). I remain CEO & treasurer. Other board members, who were present, include: Tony Overstake, Leif Williams, Bob Storlie and Elliott Tracy. And thanks go out to our first advisory board member, Kevin Roberts. Thanks to all our volunteers.

We will never give up, and we especially want you with us all the way! Together, we will win this fight!

We have a lot of exciting plans for the future… Too many to discuss here.
But I wanted to let you know that we have a written confirmation from the UO
Athletic Committee, that if the necessary funds are raised, they will
reinstate varsity wrestling. So, we are busy making plans on how we can
continue raising the necessary capital… We are thinking BIG and outside
the box, and I want to assure you that we are going to make this happen.
And we continue to need your financial support. I will keep you informed as
our plans take shape.

What’s next? We are preparing for our upcoming board of directors meeting, scheduled for November 12, at 3 PM, at 1600 Oak St., in Eugene. Matt Powell has generously offered the use of his conference room at Windermere Real Estate, once again. Thanks Matt!

We will be planning the future of our Save Oregon Wrestling campaign, and anyone who is interested in helping is welcome to attend.

Spread the word… wrestling will be reinstated at the University of Oregon by 2015! We will need your financial commitment to make this happen. Let’s all participate in restoring the dreams for tens of thousands of kids in the northwest, who’s goal is to one day, walk on the mat, and represent the Ducks. This is their motivation to excel in the classroom, work hard and earn that division 1 education through their dedication to this sport. Let’s help make this happen! Make a donation now or continue your financial support. Let’s go!

As a University of Oregon wrestling alum who has been involved with the Save Oregon Wrestling effort, I’m excited about what this new contract could mean for wrestling, as well as for other Olympic sports, at my alma mater and at other Pac-12 schools. I don’t know what kind of interest this TV deal has generated within USAW so far, but I know you have some stake in promoting the reinstatement of college wrestling programs.
