NEW PAYMENT OPTION FOR CANADIAN CLUBS
 
NAFA is pleased to announce that we have now have implemented the INTERAC Email Money Transfer system with our TD Canada Bank CAD funds account. 
 
Should you wish to pay your tournament fees, CanAm entry fees, or any other sort of payments to NAFA you can send the money from your bank's INTERAC Email Money Transfer system to paynafaca@....   Of course old fashion checks are always still accepted!
 
PLEASE be sure and note in the comments section what the payment represents (i.e. tournament entry fee, new club payment, CanAm Entry fee)  and the club name or individual's name that is sending the money.    All paperwork will still need to be send to Karen Oleson for processing. 
 
Should you wish to pay your CanAm entries electronically, go ahead and use the on-line entry form and just indicate that you will be sending a check.   Once I receive your email money transfer I will notify Karen that you have sent the money electronically.
 
You should send  a message to the same email address, paynafaca@..., notifying us of the answer to your security question.  Or if you ask something where the answer is very obvious,  like "Name of 20,000 point Award"  then there is no need to send a follow-up email.
 
If you have any questions, send me a note to this new payment email address and I will answer as soon as possible.

Can Am Volunteers - We Need You!

Kim Davis <kim.davis@...>
 

Hello everyone.  Now that the racing schedules are out, you probably have a better idea of your breaks during the day.  Please check the ring volunteer schedule posted on the Can Am site and see if you and your club can fill in some of the last spots left for line judging.  Maybe partner up with another club so that your race breaks will be covered.  More people means less time for each person sitting ringside.

 

Also, we will be needing box judges.   You know you want to watch the racing! Why not box judge when you can and get a ringside seat?  The box judging will be done on a race by race basis so you can easily fit in a few races when your club isn't racing.  We need you all or we'll have to call out for assistance.

 

Can't wait to meet new people, put faces to names and have some great racing competition.  See you all at Can Am soon!

regional reminder

Dana Nichols <workinglabs@...>
 

The Board met this evening via teleconference.  The structure of Regions 6 and 16 were considered and no change was recommended or made for the upcoming fiscal year which begins on October 1, 2010.

 

As a reminder, pursuant to section 8.3(c), “Requests to change regional affiliation to an adjacent region must be received before the start of the racing year to take effect that year.”  Therefore any requests must be received before October 1, 2010.  If a club has a current regional change in place and does not notify NAFA, the club will remain in the declared region.

new rulebook

Dana Nichols <workinglabs@...>
 

We’re just putting the finishing touches on the new rulebook and expect it to be posted today.  I know there are several tournaments this weekend.  Dale Smith has done an excellent job of making our new rulebook more user friendly.  It is still a PDF (Adobe) document, but he has added a clickable table of contents to allow you to go directly to the part of the rulebook you are looking for.  There will be an icon on the left side of the rulebook for bookmarks.  If you click on that, it will leave the table of contents in a small window alongside the left of the rulebook (depending on your version & settings in Acrobat).  Each of the sections and rules are links that will take you to that portion of the rulebook.   Also this year we have a list of significant changes at the front of the rulebook.

The wi-fi address is flying_dogs. Just double click on that connection and you will be connected. There is no user ID or Password required.
