In an effort to stay current and consistent with format of the USA Wrestling website the USWOA has launched a new website that we hope will provide links to better and more current information about the workings of the USWOA. The USWOA board of directors would like to thank Neal Dorow who maintained the original website for many years. His dedication to the organization is greatly appreciated.
The website is intended to provide the membership with more information and a place to look for the most current rule modifications. The new site will also replace the newsletter that was published and sent to the membership via email. More current new will be posted on the home page reflecting news from and about USWOA members. Take a few minutes to look the site over. There are still a few pages under construction but we wanted to launch the site before the 2015 season starts.
Suggestions and appropriate current news are welcome and can be sent to Tom Kuisle.
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rico Lomastro. Rico served the Rhode Island Wrestling Association (RIWA) selflessly as Treasurer, and Chairman for more than two decades. He was a constant fixture, instrumental in running ALL RIWA tournaments. As you know, Rico was also active as a USA Wrestling pairing offical at the National level.
I would like to request that USA Wrestling post some news of his passing on the USA Wrestling web site. While I don’t expect that folks will be able to attend, visitation will be held at Woodlawn Funeral Home in Cranston on Thursday 9/3/2015 from 4-7PM. http://www.woodlawnri.com/obituary/Americo-J.-Lomastro-Jr./West-Warwick-RI/1540856. Perhaps the simple thoughts and prayers from the wrestling community during this time will enable him to rest in peace.
Rico knew many staff at USA Wrestling, so rather than blast them all with email (I sent it to a couple), I ask that you forward this to whomever you feel appropriate. Thank you for your consideration.
