The Ohio Tournament of Champions is looking for a Montana individual
that would be interested in being a State Contact representative for
our event, as we currently have no individual qualifying events in that
state. This person's responsibility would be to distribute information
on the TofC, (which we will send them) to individuals in their state,
that they feel would be worthy competitors at the event. These
competitors would then receive a qualification exemption, which they
would indicate when they registered.
The Ohio TofC, named the top youth wrestling tournament in the world,
is looking to set a new World Record, with more than 4000 individual
entries at it's event next April 21, in Columbus, OH. This will also
mark the tournament's 20th Anniversary.

of bounds, will result in a neutral start). Matches are 10 point
technical fall and sudden death overtime. Other than that, high school
***At this past year's NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships, seven
of the 10 weights were won by TofC alumni.
