New Location, Same Traditions
By Rick Thaden of Pleasanton, NBA Banquet Chairman
The 2022 NBA Big Game Awards Banquet will be held at the Younes Conference Center South. Dates for this year are Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5. This is an annual event for the whole family! The fun begins on Friday afternoon with a statewide NBA Meeting, a question and answer session with our guest speaker, Tom Nelson, the Trade Show and Social Hour. Saturday has a full slate of activities from morning to evening and everything in between. The tradeshow, seminars, NBA merchandise, photo contest, raffles and the silent auc- tion will keep you busy all day. Then the trophy wall and Awards Banquet, which includes dinner, the speaker, raffles and awards, followed by the live auction, complete the evening. There may be plen- ty of optional planned activities, but in addition you need to plan time to catch up with old friends and make a new acquain- tance or two. It can make for some long days and short nights! We hope you will join us!
Tickets are also available online at www.nebraskabowhunters.com (the NBA website). Please note online ticket prices include a processing fee. The price for tickets by mail is $40, and a few dollars more for internet orders. Reduced price for children under 15 years of age is $20.
Remember that this is a members only event. Everybody is welcome, but the purchase of a membership is required if you are not already a member. The great thing is that membership in the NBA is still one of the greatest bargains found, and it helps support bowhunting and wildlife conservation in Nebraska. The exception to the ‘members only rule’ is that you are welcome, even encouraged, to purchase a banquet ticket for your signifi- cant other.
Your name tag is your “ticket” and will be available for pick-up from 5-7 on Friday evening, and starting at 8 am on Saturday. If your membership is up for renewal you can renew when you pick up your nametag, but it is much easier and quicker if you renew by mail or online before the banquet weekend. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
