    My name is Paige DeMarco and I work for a local NYC production company. I’m interested in filming a documentary on the Uzbeks immigrants influence on high school wrestling culture in Brooklyn/Queens. Could you let me know when the Fall wrestling season starts? Myself and the director are interested in coming to the games to watch.
