xx Vaccination Requirement for States Rumor
December 19, 2021, 09:39:06 AM by Barricade643
Is anyone else concerned by the rumor/possibility that the athletes, coaches and spectators will be required to be vaccinated to attend the State Championships, or other large wrestling tournaments? I emailed our A.D. to see if he could reach out to other A.D.s and coaches to get out ahead of this before it happens; contact NYSPHSAA and the venues now, before a decision has been made. It would be nice to know the coaches and athletic directors supported all the athletes, coaches and parents, not just those that are vaccinated. Maybe the decision to require vaccinations would only affect a couple of athletes on our team, and a couple at the next school, a few more at the school after that etc., but in the end, it will punish many athletes statewide.  I?m sure some of you are in contact with your coaches and athletic directors on a continuous basis, it should be a priority to make sure the State duals, the Sectionals or the State Championships are not just for the vaccinated. A requirement of a negative COVID test seems overreaching too but it at least it would be an accomplish-able compromise for any venue; just like they are doing for Firewolves games at the Times Union/MVP Arena. I will post this topic in each of the forum sections to see the responses it generates, if any. The unvaccinated student athletes are not the pariahs people are making them out to be, and they shouldn?t be treated as such or punished out of irrational fears.

xx Couple of minor annoyances
December 07, 2021, 09:26:59 AM by webmstr
Just wanted to note that there are couple of annoyances here in the forum.
  • The poll options are not showing up on mobile devices
  • For some, but not all, users the single quote mark is getting converted to a question mark when posting a comment
I'm aware of those issues and am actively looking to correct them. Of course, they had to pop up right when the guts of the season got going. Hope to get them corrected soon.

xx The future of cnywrestling.com
November 29, 2021, 08:39:07 AM by webmstr
It is with heavy heart that I announce that I will soon be retiring from the daily operation of cnywrestling.com. I had always planned to run the website for 20 years and then turn the keys over to somebody else. I will be entering my 18th season next month. I'm quite certain it will take two years to properly turn the website over to the next owner, if I can even find one - so I'll start the search now. The 2023-24 season will be my last.

  • The new owners should have a working knowledge of modern web technologies. The code I wrote 20 years ago is badly out of date and will not run on modern web hosts. I'm hoping my current web host will let me hold out for two more years because if they don't, the website will be DOA at that point. I have neither the desire nor inclination to teach myself new web programming languages as I did when I started. That will be the job for the new owner.
  • Must be in it for the long haul. I'm not interested in turning all of this over to somebody that wants to do it while their kids are wrestling somewhere locally and then ditch the site and move on when their kids are done.
  • Must be willing to put in the hours. It's not unusual for me to spend an extra 40-50 hours a week maintaining the website during peak times throughout the season. The wildcard in that is the pending merger of FloWrestling/TrackWrestling. It is unknown what that merger will look like. It may be possible to direct link or embed the results directly from the new Flo, thus alleviating the lions share of the weekly maintenance.
I will not turn over the website to anyone that plans on turning it into a subscription service. cnywrestling.com has always been a free service and always will be. Not only have I not made any money from cnywrestling.com, it actually costs me money every year to pay the hosting and domain fees for the website. Certainly to cover any expenses, it would be understandable if the new owners opted to put ads on the website to generate revenue. But, don't plan on being in this for the money, because there isn't any. You'll be doing this out of a love for the sport and paying it forward to the next generation.

It took me nearly two years to write the code that runs the website now. The new owners will need to get to work soon to have a workable version of the website available by the time of my retirement. If you know anybody that would be willing to take on such a herculean task, please forward them this information. If there are software engineering firms that would be willing to rewrite the website for a flat fee, I may consider staying on for the weekly maintenance minus the results entry. I'm definitely getting out of that business. Who is ready to take cnywrestling.com to the next level? Feel free to contact me at cnywrestling@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

xx Sticker Mule Opens New Combat Mules Sports Training Facility in Amsterdam
November 03, 2021, 09:45:48 AM by webmstr
FREE Training and Tutoring Available for Student Athletes at Forest Avenue Facility

FREE OPEN MATS
Monday - Thursday, 6pm-8pm (Age 13 and up only)

Sticker Mule announced today that it has opened its new Combat Mules sports training facility at the site of the former Mohawk Dairy Building on 260 Forest Avenue in Amsterdam, New York. Combat Mules provides a world-class training environment for youth and professional athletes to help them become champions both inside and outside the combat sport?s arena.

Students and professional athletes will be allowed to train at the facility for FREE and registration is open now for 9th through 12th graders. Wrestling, boxing, and sports specific training are currently available with other disciplines to follow. Parents can pick up registration forms at Combat Mules during the facility?s current operating hours of 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. All student-athletes throughout the Capital Region are eligible and FREE tutoring services will also be available.

"Our goal is to bring more excitement to Amsterdam while helping our youth become future community leaders," said Sticker Mule co-founder and CEO, Anthony Constantino. "Not every kid learns well in the classroom and Combat Mules is our way to help kids learn the principles of success, including how to perform self-assessments and build a competitive advantage, through sports."

Sticker Mule purchased the former Mohawk Dairy building on Forest Avenue at the beginning of this year and invested $800,000 in converting it into the current Combat Mules training facility. The facility is over 10,000 square feet and includes male and female locker rooms, a trainer?s room, and an outdoor training area. State-of-the-art equipment includes a 25? boxing ring, 22? professional MMA cage, 2 Jacobs Ladders, 2 Technogym Treadmills, 2 NordicTrack AirBikes, Stairmasters, custom-made 10 bag heavy bag system, IronMind grip trainers, rope climbing machine, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, plyo boxes, throwing dummies and more.

The world-class staff includes Combat Mules General Manager & Wrestling Coach, Stanley Pelech - a former collegiate wrestler, coach, and award-winning educator. Pelech has spent more than 25-years in education in both public & private schools and was most recently a Principal and Education Director on Long Island. He joined Combat Mules to merge his passion for sports and education to help develop future champions and leaders.
In addition to the Amsterdam, NY location, Sticker Mule is also investing $250,000 to establish a second Combat Mules in Mexico City, Mexico. The Mexico City facility is 5,000 square feet with an additional outdoor training area.
