NAP/GNT Bill Higgins reported on the
NAOP attendance; Flight A was approximately the same as last year and Flights B
and C increased in attendance. The site
has been secured for three years. The third place team receives $50.00 per
person. The GNT will have four flights; Unlimited, fewer than 5000, fewer than
2000 and fewer than 500. We need to
promote participation in the 0-500 category. Bill distributed a report
“Proposed Change in Payments for GNT” (copy attached). “Beginning in 2009, each
team representing District 11 in the national final of the GNT held at the
Summer NABC will receive $500 plus an additional amount not to exceed
$500. The additional amount will be
equal to the amount of money obtained by the team from its Unit. Teams whose
units cannot afford to do this, may have their case reviewed by the District
Board. The team will need to send documentation of the money received from the
unit in order to obtain the matching amount from District 11. The distribution of the money paid to the
team’s members is solely determined by the team captain.” John Hinton moved and
Bob Lyon seconded that we accept this proposal.
Passed unanimously. The 2009 GNT
