What a great Convention. For those who attended, a unanimous Knock Out! We missed those members who couldn’t make it and, and those whom we left behind on our tour of Alcatraz (you should’ve known better!).
This year’s NABF Convention was filled with friendship and fun, from the first day we arrived. On top of that, our Award’s Dinner brought in over $6000 for charity! What a generous group of people, and what a great time we had. San Francisco will never be the same!
We congratulate Duane Ford on his re election as NABF President, Graig Hubble as USA Vice President, and Mauricio Sulaiman as Mexico, Vice President. Gaby Mancini, will be replacing Ed Pearson, who to had decided to transition to boxing judge.
We send our heartfelt good wishes to Sam Mascias, who was unable to attend this year, and urge others to write Sammy and wish him well.
One of the highlights of the Convention was our excursion to Alcatraz. The boat ride to the island and the tour were exceptional. Most importantly, we, as a community, got another chance to gather as friends and family, united by our love of boxing and each other.
As Duane would say, Mind the Light. Here’s to next year!
