NYS Wrestling Film to Digital

$1,020 of $1,000 goal

Tim Herman  PENFIELD, NY
Armdrag.com has recently been given film masters of the NYS high school wrestling finals from 1979 - 1999 (plus more from the 1970s as well as a mystery reel!). This film needs to be converted to digital before it's lost (hopefully we're not already too late).

After shopping around, we found a place outside of Syracuse (Industrial Color Labs) that will do the conversion at a reasonable price.

Please help us raise $1000 to pay for this conversion, and we will upload it to YouTube for all to enjoy.

Thanks to everyone who donated... I dropped the tapes off today in Syracuse! They said it'll take 1 month to convert them all.
