PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THERE IS NO TOURNAMNET IN WEYMOUTH NEXT WEEKEND OF JUNE 16TH.

THE TOURNAMENT WAS A WELL-EXECUTED HOAX BY SOME LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLERS.

If you are looking for wrestling this weekend, consider attending the WPI Takedown Setup Clinic, and the Freestyle Tournament in Connecticut.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

Yep. They went all out with it. Made up a fake email address with the name of local coach (fooled me), invited me to give out trophies, made a tournament flier, etc.

The guilty parties were identified though shortly after it happened in the issue was turned over to the team's captains and coach to deal with it.

The hoax was held for several days while I was receiving information of the tournament from them. I have to say that if those who pulled the hoax are reading this, you acted like a budding sociopath: (this from wikipedia)

A mnemonic that can be used to remember the criteria for antisocial personality disorder is CORRUPT:

* C - cannot follow law
* O - obligations ignored
* R - remorseless
* R - recklessness
* U - underhandedness
* P - planning deceit
* T - temper

They got 5/7 of those qualities with this hoax. I received no apology from the actual perpetrators, only from the team captains and coach.
