Calling all Raiders past, present and future… Join us on the float in the Reisterstown Festival Parade this Saturday 9/7. Meet us at 8:30 AM sharp on the road right behind Food Lion, we’re 10th in line. Wear your Raiders shirt (supposed to be a cool, clear morning) and help us toss candy from the Raiders ship. Parade starts moving at 9AM and we’ll be done by ~10:00 for pick-up at the Reisterstown Shopping Center. It’s always a great time so come out and promote your team! RSVP to Wrestling@RaidersNW.com with who and your cell phone (in case of last minute weather/ changes.)
Like in wrestling, you will never go undefeated in life, and wrestling teaches young people how to overcome defeat. Mark Manning, head wrestling coach of the Nebraska Huskers talks about how wrestling prepares you to handle life obstacles.

Big congrats to these Raiders!!
Each year, as one of our few fund raisers, we do a “restaurant night”. We all recruit everyone we know to eat at a particular place, and that place donates a portion of sales back to the team. In the past we have had wonderful participation and a fantastic time, and I hope we continue that tradition. Here are the details for this year:
Tuesday, January 8th
Reter’s Crab House & Grille
509 Main St., Reisterstown, MD 21136, 410-526-3300
(near Chartley Drive, across from Jiffy Lube and Wawa)
There will be no practice that night so everyone can attend. Tuesdays is “all-you-can-eat shrimp night” with soup and a salad for $14.99. A full menu can be found here: http://www.reterscrabhouse.com/menu.php
EVERYONE MUST TELL THEIR SERVER THEY ARE THERE FOR THE WRESTLING PROGRAM for us to get credit. Please invite friends and family and join us for a great night out. If you can’t make it for dinner, anytime of the day counts, so try to get there for lunch. We all appreciate your support. Have a safe and happy New Year!
