District Directors Message:
I want to start by saying thanks to David Horsley for a job well done. I must say that I’m excited to be your New District Director and look forward to working with all the members of this great district. District 3 has been a leader at introducing new ideas and classes to NAMBA. A couple I can think of is Jersey Skiff, Gas Twin Rigger and with the members help I want to submit D3’s latest class of Superboat to NAMBA to be recognized as a class.
Your new BOD has quite a few new ideas they will be working on to help move us into the 21st century. One of which is the new D3 Forum! Only D3 members with current NAMBA cards will be allowed on the NAMBAD3 Forum (See below Registering for the Forum). Here all members can post about things in our district, discuss and resolve any problems among us without putting it out there on a public forum for the whole world to see. Another great thing about this forum is that the district members will be able to submit ideas to be discussed and voted on without having to be present at a race to cast a vote. In other words no one will be left out. This opens up a whole new world for our district to communicate and we hope to see everyone participate in our quest to continue to move our District and our Hobby in a positive direction.
Registering for the Forum: When you register for the forum make sure and use your last name and NAMBA number without spaces as your user name. For example: farrow782
You will have to wait for an Admin to approve you. Once approved you will receive an email from ProBoards with an activation code link, simply click on the link or copy and paste the code when you go to sign in again.
I hope you all are as excited as I am about this addition to our ability to communicate without the need to wait to get together for a meeting held at a race!
Last but not least we will be holding a short meeting at the drivers meeting in Miami on the 18th of November to vote on the Thunderboat rules for D3.
Wayne Farrow – NAMBA D3 Director
Attention Club Presidents:
You will need to send in your club registrations and site insurance to NAMBA for the 2018 season. In addition we will need to have a sanction for each race held this year. The sanction helps secure insurance since the number of races that are sanctioned plays a factor in insurance coverage. Please send your sanction forms to me with the fee and I will forward them to NAMBA for you.
2018 Race Format: This years High Points Championship qualifying race classes will be based on a class having competed in 5 of the 7 scheduled races. As soon as the final points have been tallied the champions in each class will be posted. Please check them to make sure they are accurate before awards are ordered. Awards this year will again consist of certificates listing the class championship and a check for NAMBA dollars.
