How SCRAMBLEFEST Works (please read!)
This is not a traditional wrestling tournament but rather an innovative format that allows competitors to maximize their time on the mat. Wrestlers seek out opponents at their age/weight and set up bouts with them. Opponents can agree on any style (e.g., folkstyle, freestyle, greco) and determine whatever length of bout they prefer. For example, two wrestlers can agree on a one-period, 5 minute bout....or 3 two-minute periods....or whatever. They then find an open spot on the mat and begin their match (there are no referees). Once finished, they log in the results at the designated place and can immediately look for new opponents.
Wrestlers who compete for 45 minutes will earn a gold medal (regardless of match results). 30 and 25 minutes of competition qualify for a silver and bronze medal, respectively. Additional medals will be awarded in categories like most wins, points scored, etc. However, the primary goal is to obtain mat time against numerous opponents!

Spectator viewing areas will be standing room only and may be limited based on turnout.
