Board announces process for election of commissioner at Gay Bowl 0

Posted on July 23, 2012 by Shane Kinkennon

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.

Grab a Miller Lite and take a seat.  This month’s update is jam-packed with all sorts of news and announcements, from an explanation of changes to Gay Bowl, to the announcement of nominees to the Hall of Fame, to an official THANK YOU to MillerCoors for their investment in our community!

We also note and mourn the passing of two members of our community: Michael Jazmin of San Diego, and Tim Lipka of Washington, DC.  Michael and Tim were well loved, and they will be deeply, deeply missed.

Posted on July 20, 2012 by Patrick McIntyre

The NGFFL is proud to announce a stellar cast of ten nominees for the 2012 Class of the NGFFL Hall of Fame!  These ten men represent some of the best athletes, organizers, and people you’ll find, and their service and excellence at the national and local levels should inspire all of us to work hard and give back.  The election process is intended to honor the best of the best, but the Board is confident that all of the nominees are worthy of recognition.  Congratulations to the nominees, and thank you to those who nominated them!
