Here are the provisional groups:
Group A will play Saturday 9am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm & Sunday 10:30am
Group B will play Saturday 10:30am, 1:30pm, 4:30pm, 7:30pm & Sunday 9am
Top 4 of each group will make the single elimination on Sunday afternoon.
Now that the team list and most rosters have been finalized, we’d like to begin recruiting referees to schedule for the Bench Championship in a few weeks. Bruce and Joe will be there refereeing full time, but it would be great if we could get more non-playing referees to volunteer, and we encourage every team to provide one person to referee.
Also, you get paid $10/game to head ref, and $5/game to secondary ref!!!!
Timaru, NZ will be submitting a formal bid to host worlds in late 2015 within the next few weeks. It’s not expected that any other clubs will compete for that (assuming the bid is up to the standard expected). If there is an NA club that wants to host in 2015, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before September 30th (a formal bid is not needed, but at least a firm intention). The deadline is so that Timaru can proceed with their planning and people can get an early start on booking tickets..
It’s been a few weeks since NAs, and we are hoping you’ve decided as a club whether you are coming to Lexington for the NAH Bench Champs.
The deadline for registration is Sunday August 17th. After that spots will be handed down to the next clubs. If you aren’t planning to come, please also let us know asap, so we can help other clubs make plans.
The fees cover the building of a 3rd court, park permits, and the paying of refs. Main refs will get $10 per game, assistant refs will get $5.
