2013 Accomplishments

  • Successfully held 2 B-tier Tournaments; Spring Pro/Am and No Quarter at New Quarter
  • No Quarter at New Quarter had the largest turnout ever; a huge thank you to Del for the awesome taco bar
  • Both events had positive feedback from players
  • nndgc.com has been updated
  • Joe R. created a great promo video for the club

Club Membership and Financial Status

  • Currently 44 members
  • $10 membership option greatly increased membership; there are very limited t-shirts remaining for $25/30 memberships, so $10 membership may be the only option for the remainder of 2013
  • Alternate t-shirt options are requested from those who have contacts; players are interested in smaller number of shirt purchases for club logo shirts.  If a suitable option is available we will consider this for 2013, otherwise, alternatives from Paragon are requested for 2014 membership ideas.  This will be a discussion topic at the July meeting — please have vendors name with quotes/options available for discussion.
  • Ice Bowl: broke even on tournament costs
  • Spring Pro/Am: still have remaining tournament merchandise
  • No Quarter: did not cover
  • Sponsorship information available on nndgc.com
