The Pure Wrestling Association is bringing March Madness to Campbell River.

This Vancouver Island version of March Madness will be held on a basketball court – but also inside a squared circle – as the PWA presents the inaugural Carihi Cup, a fundraiser which sees 100 per cent of concession sales and partial proceeds going to the 2014 Carihi Grad Class.

Doors to the Carihi Secondary School gym (350 Dogwood St.) open at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 14 and the bell rings at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets – $20 front row, $15 general, $10 youth (5-12 years old), toddlers free (two per paid adult) – are available at Fitness Etc. (190 Dogwood St.) and Night Time News (80A Westgate Road) and through the ticket hotline at 250-203-5473.

The card for the event has just been released. Island wrestling fans will not want to miss a tag team tilt featuring The Thrillbillies – Comox Valley's Barry Goode and Campbell River's Mike Becherer – against Matt Havik and Chris Slade with Juan Valdez.

Sure to entertain is a #1 contenders match for the Elite Women's championship that pits Riea Von Slasher against Bambi Hall. The PWA B.C. championship will be on the line when reigning champ Kenny Doll takes on Krofton.

The Carihi Cup semifinals see BJ Laredo challenge a mystery opponent, and fan favourite Cremator Von Slasher try to impose his considerable will on "Jamaican Sensation" Reggie Marley. The semifinal winners will meet in the main event to crown the inaugural Carihi Cup champion.
