We appreciate your continued patience as we become acquainted with all the inner working of NBAA and prepare for the 2013 season.  We know it has taken some time, but we hope you agree it will be worth the wait! Back in January at the NOVI show Directors meeting we published all the DATES for 2013 NBAA events listed below but not the locations. So here are some announcements on what we have been working on!

The 2013 NBAA National Championship – April 25-27

Exciting news!

A first for NBAA!  We will be filming the 2013 Spring Championship for television on NBC sports!  The event will also be streamed live world-wide on the internet so all your friends back home can see you! There is still time for all qualified teams to get registered currently we are already at 338 boats!  UNEQUALED media coverage for NBAA anglers!

If you have not yet registered for the championship please do so at your first opportunity and remember you must register by April 15th if you want to get your earned start position otherwise you go into the random draw for take off.
