This month’s Two-Minute Drill provides all you need to know about Gay Bowl XII this week in Denver, Colorado. Please take a look and familiarize yourselves with everything that’s planned and expected. The Denver Gay Bowl Committee has created what promises to be a very memorable experience for all of us! So before you take off, make sure you know everything you need to know!
And one last thing – don’t forget your flags and footballs!!
The NGFFL member cities adopted a host of rule changes that become effective with this tournament. I’m going to attempt to hit the highlights:
The declaration form for aspiring candidates for NGFFL commissioner for the 2013 / 2014 term is now available. Check it out. It asks aspiring candidates to answer a number of questions to illustrate that they’d do as NGFFL leader. Candidates have until August 17 to fill out the form. The answers will be shared with member city “City Leaders” once the nominating period closes. The election process and schedule can be found here.
It’s commissioner-election time. The NGFFL commissioner, the organization’s top official, is to be elected every even-numbered year at Gay Bowl, according to the organization’s Bylaws. (Then later this fall, two more of the total seven elected Board seats will be voted on.) The Board has just distributed to City Leaders the process that the commissioner election will follow this year. Prospective candidates will be able to declare their candidacy beginning this Friday, July 27 (via a Survey Monkey form that will be published on Friday). Candidate declarations are due August 17.
Is it you? The NGFFL is seeking leaders who are committed to taking our great sport to more LGBT people in more places. Check it out.
