It’s official, we have a new all-time high for Seminar response in the first 24 hours. As of this writing, 60 professional wrestlers have filled out the registration form available at rise-wrestling.com/caseforchange. We fully expected this to have high interest and turnout, but this has certainly exceeded expectations.
As I have done since the initial announcements of A Case for Change Seminar and Tryout for Multiple Promotions and all communication since, I am trying to be as transparent as possible at all steps of the process with all involved.
First and foremost, as much as I would love to say there is time and space to give everyone who registers a shot – this is not realistic. Even with what we have already received for interest through registration, we have more people interested than we can realistically give personal attention to and truly evaluate when it actually comes down to Seminar and Tryout time on March 26 and 27 in Berwyn, IL in suburban Chicago.
I am writing this almost exactly 24 hours after we first opened registration. I have 60 registration forms to sort through and evaluate. We cannot even realistically execute our plan for Seminar and Tryout with even that many people.
So, here are some important numbers, infos, etc.
The Seminar and Tryout will have a maximum cap of 40 total attendees in the role of wrestler. Managers, referees, announcers and other less physical or non-physical roles are NOT being counted in this cap of 40.
I have made the decision to cut off registration either A: When I have received 200 registration forms or B: End of day Friday, January 31 – whichever comes first. I can not realistically review and interact with more than that based on my available time and resources.
This Friday, January 24, I will begin sending out additional information and next steps emails to all who’ve registered. It is CRUCIAL for all prospective participants to reply to these emails as requested in a timely manner. Please make sure to double check your spam folders. All communication is being routed to whatever email address you put on your registration form. Please double and triple check that it is correct before submitting the form.
After Friday, January 24, if you have completed the registration form and have not heard from me within 48 hours of submission, please email me directly as a reminder at firstname.lastname@example.org, Subject: Case for Change Next Steps.
Now, if you want to attend this Seminar and Tryout for multiple pro wrestling promotions, it is highly advised to complete your registration form ASAP!
And one final update, we have added another wrestling promotion to the mix of scouting and recruiting organizations. Berwyn Championship Wrestling, based in our home at The Berwyn Eagles Club, promotes monthly events and will be on hand feasting their eyes upon what we suspect will be our strongest Prospective Talent Pool to date.
Thank you all for your time and interest in A Case for Change!
