Have not been to this for a few years. Do they still try to have it on the football field? Went the first 3 years and it was a good time.

Never been on the football field. Always at the beach.

Individual and team awards

There is a new campground on the west side of the lake, so 2 options this year

Whoever runs this tournament out of Litchfield, how easy or hard is it to get this kind of thing started in another city with permits and such?

The city is pretty good about working with us. No permits, but we do have to reserve the park. The biggest challenge is set up and tear down. Moving 4 mats, setting them up, setting up shade shelters, concessions and everything else and then returning them same day takes an army and is very difficult. The debate is always: is the little bit of profit worth all the work. For us, this is about the pride of offering a unique experience and not the $$$. I would warn that if your club doesnít buy into that it will be your biggest struggle

I received a question regarding camping for Summer Slam and thought I would post here in case others are wondering what is available.


Lake Ripley Campground.
Address: 1810 S Ripley Dr, Litchfield, MN 55355
Phone: (320) 693-7201
East Side of Lake Ripley and within easy walking distance of the venue.
This campground is first come first serve.

Spirit of Ripley Campground
Address: 25169 CSAH 1, Litchfield, MN 55355
Phone: (320) 282-5260
West side of Lake Ripley and approximately 2 miles from the venue. Campground is across the road from the lake and is new this year.

Lake Ripley is an excellent fishing and recreational lake. There is a public access on the East and West end of the lake. Bring the boat and stay the weekend.

We had our final Summer Slam Meeting last night and all is set for an awesome day Aug 4th.

Reminder that there is an OPTIONAL team aspect of this tournament. Get a hold of your buddies and create a Super Team. ( no requirement you are from the same town, or even same state)

Free Watermelon and music all day! Excellent Concessions! Beautiful setting. A Unique wrestling experience and well worth the trip.

Who has the team to watch this year???

What is the weather procedure? Looks like 65% chance of thunderstorms.

We will be set up and ready to wrestle, rain or shine. If the weather is too bad, the event will be cancelled till next year, but the forecast only calls for scattered storms, not an all day soaker. You may just have to eat a couple extra hamburgers and free watermelon if there is a rain delay.

The forecast is showing a chance of scattered storms around 10 am. Those chances decrease as the day goes on. Temps look pleasant at 77.

See everyone tomorrow

So much for my unbridled optimism. Due to weather forecasts, Summer Slam has been cancelled for the first time. We do apologize! Complaints should be directed to Belinda Jensen.

All Awards, T Shirts, etc will be held till this time next year when we will once again host Summer Slam 2019.

Please notify anyone you know that may have planned to make the drive.

Thanks Again

We decided year one that the unique experience is the goal and we either have it at the lake or not at all. 12 years without a rain out. I guess we were due. The coordination required to pull this off makes it too hard to reschedule. Please enjoy your weekend however you can and join us again next year.
