February 6 is the Kirk Spencer Invitational at WLHS.
I'm sure that many of you remember Kirk Spencer -- he ran the wrestling club when our kids were little. My son Tom wrestled with him one season and I really came to appreciate all that he did for our boys.
As you know, Kirk passed away unexpectedly a couple of years ago, leaving a big hole behind him. This tournament is one way to honor him.
I mentioned at the pre-season parent meeting that I am working on getting a big banner with a picture of Kirk that we can put up every year at the Kirk Spencer Invitational. I think it would go a long way to keeping his memory and contribution in front of us.
A 96"x48" banner will cost about $200. If you could contribute $10 or $20, that would help out a lot. (I won't be able to come to the next two matches, so mail works best for me now). Here's my address:
5120 Linn Lane
West Linn, OR 97068
I'm also working on a bio for the back of our program.
Thanks for your help on this. Don't hesitate to call with questions or suggestions.
