Convince Lanesborough To Support TIW!!!

This petition had 429 supporters

Truly Independent Wrestling (TIW) is an independently-run, professional wrestling company founded in the summer of 2016 by Scott Fellows and Lance Madewell. Starting in December 2016, TIW brought the town of Pittsfield, MA monthly wrestling entertainment.

After six wildly successful events, TIW decided that the time had come for a move in location to the Berkshire Mall in Lanesborough, MA. For TIW, this meant a long term home to open its training facility and a chance to grow as a business. With crowds breaking almost 200 people at their previous shows, TIW thought a bigger venue would mean bigger crowds.

However, things haven't been easy for TIW since their transition to the Berkshire Mall. While the mall has welcomed them with open arms, there have been challenges with the Town of Lanesborough about various things, particularly the future of TIW shows and capacity.

On July 14th, TIW was forced with a day's notice that only 150 fans would be able to attend the July 15th show, "Battle in the Berkshires: Clean Slate". This forced another 100 fans who were wanting to attend to miss out on a show they came to see.

This petition has been created in an attempt to show the Town of Lanesborough that TIW has taken the precautions needed (shows are fully insured and crowd managers are in place) to be able to safely run their shows (once a month) at a higher capacity.

We hope to go before the Town Selectmen's Board on August 14th to hopefully resolve this issue. Your support will not only support TIW, but local businesses as well!
