Hillside Wrestling Weekend XII was held July 26-30, 2006. It was the thirteenth annual wrestling weekend and my eleventh. As with last year, there were lots of new guys experiencing Hillside for the first time. With 110 wrestlers registered, there was plenty of opportunity to wrestle day and night. The weather was a Hillside first: starting out more humid than any previous weekend, then drying out and giving way to a heat wave at the beginning of the following week.

The ride in was warm and humid. From Staten Island, took the Bayonne Bridge into New Jersey, then via Port Jervis, NY to northeastern Pennsylvania.

Wrestling and campsite photos
Get to camp just after lunch, have first match then hit the showers. Was planning on having a sandwich on arrival but the mat beckoned, so had quite an appetite by dinnertime. Wrestled till 1 - 3 a.m. each day -- sleep can wait till later. Was concerned about a pre-Hillside shoulder injury but it mostly didn’t affect the weekend’s wrestling.
Just arrived at Hillside:
