MAA Annual Awards Banquet

There was a discussion about the Annual Archery Banquet at the meeting. It was agreed by the clubs and MAA officers represented due to the low attendance that we should hold the banquet at one of the club with indoor ranges.  Regular banquet halls are requiring 14 day prior headcount as well as over a year booking prior to the date.  It was agreed that we could cater the affair at a club with an indoor range. Also, people attending would not have to leave at a required time. The MAA could pay the club a certain fee for rental and get info from the club each year of a good place to get it catered.  Any club wishing to hold the 2008 Annual Awards banquet please contact, Colleen McGowan, MAA President ASAP, so we can update the ad for the banquet in the 2008 guide.

Agenda Items

1.  Change the Field round for the charity shoot from 14 targets to a regular 28 target NFAA Field round.  3D shooter's will be advised to start later in the day if they want to participate in the Charity auction.

 

Reasoning:  Poor participation has been reported due to the fact that dot shooters want to shoot a full 28 target round.

 

Submitted by: Bob Sales, VP of Scheduling.

2.  Change the State 3D Challenge to State Marked and Unmarked 3D State Championship and to recognize all NFAA classes. No other organization classes shall be recognized for either state Championship. All IBO shooters will shoot in the guest class unless they are members of MAA/NFAA. They will then be placed in the appropriate NFAA/ MAA class. 

 

Reasoning:  Poor participation by MAA/NFAA shooters. 

 

Submitted by: Bob Sales, VP of Scheduling.

 

Exec. Committee:   Agrees

Agenda item is passed

 

 3.  Change the format of the State Indoors to the same as the current Mid Atlantic Indoors format. Which is you can shoot once or twice but only one score will count. Ties will be broken by ‘X’s and inside out “X”s. 

 

  Reasoning: This should increase participation for two reasons. Overnight stays at the location and other conflicts of scheduling with work, School or other family activities.

 4. Change our state outdoor to prior the non-travel weekend prior to the Outdoor Nationals. 

 

Reasoning:  Most of the other states hold their outdoor states championships prior to the national championships. This would also good for all those who choose to travel to the nationals to participate in a tournament of this level just prior participating in them.
