The NAH is now collecting bid information from clubs interested in hosting the 2018 NAHBPC. This year we are providing start-up funds (up to $2,275.00 USD!) to help ensure the best quality event possible and to encourage quality bid submissions. Read more about this year’s Regional Qualifiers and Continental Championship here.
Here is a quick breakdown of the money we will be offering up to a host club looking to take on this years event:
|$500||Winning bid (two courts)|
|$300||Additional Courts (for each additional court) max 4|
|$75/court||Lights (until at least 10pm) to a maximum of $225|
|$50/court||Court Access (symmetrical squad ready doors) to a maximum of $150|
|$100/court||Reffing facilities (elevated, covered stands with functional scoreboards)|
|50% contribution||Free Food (match costs on food, snacks, beverages) max $100/day|
|$5/Game||Refereeing (for every game in the tournament we will front $5 for reffing)|
These are the financial perks we will be offering up to the host of the 2018 NAHBPC. This along with the support from our team and the skills of past tournament organizing, we feel any club in the NAH has the ability to take this on and we encourage you to submit a bid. Interested hosts should consider how else they would fundraise for the NAHBPC in conjunction with NAH funds. It is okay if your club cannot provide all details now. Submit what you plan to provide and qualify what you can commit to provide and what you seek to provide. Additional review and work between the host and the NAH may result in additional funding if additional features are added. Bids should be submitted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the documents provided here. It is okay if your club cannot provide all details now.

The 2018 NAHBPC should be held no earlier than September 21st and no later than October 22, 2018. If you would like to host outside of this time window, please contact the NAH Tournament Organiser to discuss the feasibility.

REF PAYMENTS: Over the weekend, the NAH reviewed all available documents from the 2017 WHBPC to pay referees. Some documents were damaged and/or lost which delayed the process. We apologize for the delay on closing out this effort, and thank everyone who helped. We are currently collecting emails, and will be sending out contact info so that we can PayPal you for your work. Keep an eye out in your inbox! If you wish, you may reject your payment and donate it to one of three initiatives/causes:
- Support to San Juan Puerto Rico Bici Polo Club players (cash to the club for them to use however they see fit)
- NAH Incorporation Fund (money to be used to help clubs register/incorporate in their state/providence or towards non-profit status)
- 2018 WTF-FRST Scholarship Fund
WTF-FRST: We are already into 2018, and are looking to help WTF-FRST raise more money this year to support the community and promote diversity, growth, and competition! If you’d like to donate to this initiative, PayPal your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note that says “WTF-FRST”!
