TNUSAWRESTLING Fargo Questionnaire

Recommended Posts

The TNUSA Wrestling Board is working diligently to make the Fargo trip this year a great experience for all involved be it wrestler, coach or parent alike. Please see the attached survey so that we may have an estimated head count for the trip and make this year the best one yet.

You know what is not in this survey? The common sense approach of making it affordable for everyone which has already been offered to the leadership. What an absolute joke.

All that needs to be presented is an Actual breakdown of Cost.

Expense for trip.

Entry fee,team gear(what they get) travel, lodging dorm which covers meals or hotel which requires meals to be purchased. If not dorms then more gas is Required to eat and going back n forth daily.

why don't you run for the office if you know so much, and can do such a better job?

Funny, but I'm not Bowers. I am just tired of everyone bashing, but no one is willing to step up and do the job.

Did I say something that wasn’t true? Was there not an option presented to them that made participation more affordable for everyone? How is that not the path we are choosing? How short sighted do you have to be to not understand that this is about control and power and nothing more. This has zero to do with what is right and in the best interest of the kids. That’s why I have a problem Mr. Anthony with the leadership of our USA wrestling organization. It doesn’t put the kids first and that is wrong in every single way imaginable.

Since it is an elected position, I would suppose that each year that would be the option

No John, Bowers rewrote the charter rules after he was elected to extend his term to a 3 year term.

Isn't this post about trying to help the Board figure out how to control cost? From what I am reading, its a post with the thought to HELP.

Why do you people (JIII, Durdon, and Ummmno) always make things so TOXIC. From what I can tell 2 of you are from Cleveland, isn't that where Bowers is from, seems as if you just want some pay back. Suck it up butter cup and move on. Revenge is for the weak, do something positive and HELP the Board and not your selves. Have you ever called anyone from the BOARD and asked what you can do to help. Seems like a great place to start. 

From what I can tell reading through the USA web site, there are 12 or 13 members of the board, so if there are that many members how can Bowers be the issue. Durdon you seem so sure of your self, are you on the BOARD. You always have some half baked idea of how things work. If there are that many members of the BOARD, then how can Bowers just as you say "Rewrote the rules". From what I read it takes 2/3rd Vote to amend the BYLAWS, that is the term you are looking for DURDON. 

Now lets talk about the real issue, SUPPORT for the State. If USA wrestling is helping (EXAMPLE IRONMAN being a great event) then why don't the LOUD mouth go to the events and Help, make an effort to make a difference. In my OPINION, BOWERS is doing what is HELPING everyone not just a part of the STATE. This from someone who sees the efforts of the whole BOARD.

Stop being TOXIC.

So, here is the problem, Bowers made this survey to see who interested in going to Fargo without telling people the cost.  Cost is the determining factor in whether or not people are interested in going to Fargo.  So until people know what the cost is they can’t make a decision as to whether or not they are going.    So the the results of thus survey will be so incredibly flawed that it makes it worthless.  

And before you say it’s $1500, that’s a number Bowers has thrown out there as a maybe and it has never been voted on by the board. Right now, there is an offer out there by a board member and a major wrestling booster to cover the cost of Fargo so that every kid that wants to go can go to Fargo for $500.   If people knew the cost was only going to be $500 then there would be a tremendous amount more interest in kids wanting to go to Fargo and this survey would reflect that.  Isn’t that something we want. 

Considering that we only had 9 TN wrestlers go to Fargo last year and do both styles, TWF should focus on taking in every donation dollar of support they can get to reduce the cost of the Fargo trip.  

AGAIN 9 Total kids!!   I’m sorry but that’s was an abysmal failure by the TWF last year.
