Hello to all State and Local bowfishing Organizations!
This year, 2011, the Bowfishing Association of America will start re-implementing the BAA State and Local Affiliates program back again as it once used to be. This was voted on at the spring meeting 2010, and again reiterated at the Worlds 2010 meeting. This Affiliation Program was used before in the BAA, but since just disappeared over the years. It was originally formed to help support the State and Local organizations within the bowfishing community with Insurance for each club, and it also helped solidify the BAA for all the different parts of the Country. Over the years, both have seemed to fallen with time, but the premise is still the same. What we voted on and decided was to re-implement the Affiliation Program to help with Insurance of clubs, and also to help support both the Individual States and the BAA as one again. With your Bowfishing Organization joining the BAA Affiliates Program, you will :
1. Have the Insurance Provided by the BAA for your Club with being under both the Club and the BAA.
2. For Sanctioning Tournaments up to 4 will run $200.00 (fees to help support the Organization). Regular Sanctioning fee ran $300.00 for 4 tournaments before. (4 tournaments @ $75.00 each)
3. For Sanctioning Tournaments from 5 to how ever many you prefer to have will run $300.00(fees to help support the Organization)
There will be a $100.00 Annual fee to Join the BAA Affiliates Club program per Club per year. This will have each Individual State under an Umbrella of the BAA to allow each Club the benefits that the BAA has acquired over the years from all bowfishermen and women since the conception of the Organization. This will also allow State and Local Organizations a better cost effective tool to help promote the Sport and to help support the BAA, and is one more step to solidifying the Bowfishing Community as a whole!
Please note that the BAA is not licensed to sell insurance that we purchase for the BAA, and its members, and the Affiliates program was designed to help keep insurance for individual state coverage through the BAA. BAA Individuals may still be able to obtain the Sanctioning Insurance individually for a donation cost of $75.00 each if this plan does not fit within your clubs tournament schedule, or its usage of insurance. This is designed to help keeps costs down for the clubs over the period of the year, and to help with the growth of the National Organization at local levels for the good of all Bowfishing. For questions or comments please feel free to contact me at 501-730-3169.

Insurance costs the BAA $750.00 per year....the only way we can use the insurance is for BAA members and the officers of the state or local club have to be BAA members.....the Insurance will not cover NON-BAA members, and therefore a club which would like the insurance and sanctioning will not be able to get insurance thru the BAA unless the officers hosting the event are BAA members.....
This method posted above is cheaper for state and local clubs if they want insurance for the year on their shoots vs. doing $75.00 per each event....(If your only interested in placing one shoot a year, please contact amanda and we can make some consessions)
