To All NBBA Team Contacts:
I am very happy to announce that the first annual NBBA Nubson team grant program is now
open for enrollment.
This program was introduced at the general assembly meeting in July of 2011.
The enrollment period will run from February 1, 2012, through February 29, 2012.
The grants will be awarded by a witnessed, lottery-based system at the NBBA spring board meeting the weekend of March 23, 2012 in Ames, Iowa.
Eligibility for this first year of awards is very simple. Namely, your team has to have
paid its $25 prior to the March first deadline, and an official team contact or team coach
must send an email to the NBBA president requesting that his team be included in the grant
Hopefully, this will be the start of a program that will be able to assist many NBBA teams in the coming years.
My thanks to the Nubson family and to the dedicated members of your NBBA board, who have
made this program possible.
