Keith Kline Memorial Tournament
This past weekend Oak Harbor held its annual biddy wrestling tournament
in honor of our fallen hero Keith Kline.
I would like to extend a big thank you to all that contributed or
participated in this event. It takes many hands to make an event
like this successful. From individuals doing registration,
concessions, pairing room, mat set up and weigh ins, to the local
businesses that donated items to be used.
This years tournament, like many in the past was a great success.
