$37 for a digital scoreboard that updates automatically from Takedown. Not priceless, but how many pancake breakfasts and car washes to pay for this:
Last week we attended a tournament that was using five of these special purpose table scoreboards, each one $600 for a total investment of $3,000. We suggested to the tournament director that his school could sell these devices for ~$400 each, deploy a Takedown-based scoreboard as shown above and re-invest about $1,500-2,000 back into his school's wrestling program. He was interested.
All coaches want to get the most value possible for their hard-earned program funds. Using a digital scoreboard driven by Takedown can help you save a lot of money.
