Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #9

Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #9 Final of the COVID year 2021 6/21/2021

The most important lesson learned this year was that if you trust the system and trust the process great

things are in store for those who believe. Our annual awards banquet was held outdoors at Minium

Park and just like the season, we had some obstacles to overcome dueto the weather but it was still a

great night.
