Reter’s Restaurant Night Tuesday 1/8

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:

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!

*Because we have novice practices Monday through Thursday between Owings Mills and Franklin, we are able to be flexible to fit anyone’s schedule challenges.

Where to go?

  • Returning B-Team wrestlers should report to the team/location they’re returning from.
  • Since our program now covers the Reisterstown, Owings Mills, and Pikesville areas, here are guidelines for new wrestlers:
  • If districted for Franklin HS, you will be assigned to the Reisterstown novice team and should report to Franklin.
  • If districted for Owings Mills HS, you will be assigned to the Owings Mills novice team and should report to Owings Mills HS.
  • If districted for neither, you will likely be assigned to the team more in need of wrestlers, but should report to Franklin HS to start.
  • We are, however, able to be somewhat flexible where practice nights at one location of the other are an issue, or carpooling, etc.
  • At Franklin, the wrestling room is through the gym around back. At Owings Mills, the wrestling room is underneath the main gym.

What to wear?

  • Gym clothes
  • Clean court shoes or wrestling shoes
  • No zippers or mud.
  • No jewelry
  • Sports goggles/glasses if you wear glasses and can’t operate without them
  • We will talk about ear guards

New Parents

At the beginning of tomorrow’s practices we’ll have a brief “new parent” break-out for a “what to expect” and Q&A. We will repeat this at the second practices for those that can’t get out to tomorrow’s practices.
