Thank you to all the members and guests that braved the chilly annual NBUA Banquet on Saturday October 14th. It was a great night to celebrate the season and give recognition to the outstanding achievements by our membership. Thanks to the emcee skills of Jay Neff, the musical talents of Tim Stever, the organizational and operational effort by Mark Clough, greeting skills of Mark and Sandi Snyder, decorating skills of Jodi Clough and Leslie Fitzpatrick, and a moving speech by our High School Coach of the Year Mike Brundage we concluded the challenging season with a bang.
Below is a recap of the award recipients and members who were promoted.
