Hillside Wrestling Weekend XIV was held July 25-29, 2007. It was the 14th annual wrestling weekend and my 12th. 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, with mild weather day and night. There was a big thunderstorm on Friday which caused about 500 power outages in Scranton and Carbondale, and a lot of flooding, but it was fine at camp.

The Ride There and Back (NY, NJ & PA) | At Hillside: Wrestling and other photos from Hillside Campground
Pick tomatoes before leaving so they don’t spoil on the vine while I’m away. Warm & sunny weather both coming and going; took G.W. Bridge going and Bayonne Bridge returning. Fog in eastern PA makes for some interesting photos, but the mosquitoes mostly stay away, unlike last year. Arrive Wednesday evening around 9.

Ken vs. Nick match on Friday (thanks to Bob who took the photos)
The pro clinic is held at a new location, just below site 60, and on Friday due to the rain forecast for Saturday and Sunday. But the rest of the weekend was sunny and warm.
For the first time, there was a Brazilian jiu-jitsu clinic at the sub tent on Saturday morning, before and during the freestyle tournament.
