AWSA President's Message

the March update

1) We finally have an agreement with West Palm, the new nationals contract gives the LOC 80% of the entry fees with no fees being taken out of the gross. This will result in a positive cash flow of approximately $20,000 more to the LOC.

2) Bakersfield is working out the final details on the 2024 Nationals, this contract will be ready for board vote in August.

3) AWSA and IWWF is closely monitoring the situation in Mexico, if the situation worsens the board will be asked to make a decision on sending a team to the U21

4) The rights to the US open are once again in the hands of AWSA, it is our position that it should never have gone to USAWSWS, now lets find a sponsor for 2024

5) Please feel free to contact me with any ideas to increase membership

a) Awards Jim Jaquess
