Exclamation IKWF Meeting

April meeting was Sunday

19 proposals will be up for a FULL vote in August.

Most are administrative and some will be seen on a daily basis.

The more important one to people (IMO)

Proposals for By-law changes - 2019

***A wrestler cannot wrestler from other teams to compete with them at out-of-state allstar tournaments during the IKWF competition season.
No more traveling teams made up of other clubs DURING the IKWF competitive season.

***Double elimination throughout the IKWF State Series.
(Note: Regionals are currently double elimination)
Rockford will be roughly 8 am until 10 pm on both Friday and Saturday.
A lot of the ceremonial stuff/parade/ will be eliminated
Shorter breaks
Stage would stay
Sectional would be 2.5 to 3 hours longer too

Any person who is in eighth grade or below and not fifteen prior to Regionals of the current wrestling season.
If you turn 15 before Regionals no IKWF participation/State
