NEBA of Massachusetts 2015 State Finals Entry Form
2015 NEBA of MA State Finals Information Sheet
For the new folks, as long as you and your partner meet the 3 event minimum and the EES requirement you are eligible for the finals, there is no qualifying.

Now for the state finals. Please book your rooms ASAP as the hotel has a hold on them. Here is the information:

2015 State Finals -- Bellows Falls VT. Friday September 11th & Saturday September 12th out of the Springfield, VT ramp.

You can use the Bellows Falls ramp for practicing.

The flagship hotel has been re-branded as a Roadway Inn.

593 Rockingham Road

Bellows Falls, VT, US, 05101

Phone: (802) 463-4536

The rooms are blocked off from Wednesday September 9th-Saturday September 12th (You can stay more nights or less nights). The group rate is $79 a night from Sunday the 6th – Friday the 11th. The rate for Friday night the 11th will be $99. When you call-in use code NEBA to get these rates. The room block is in place till May 1st or the rooms sell out whichever come first.

They have changed the room layout which will make it more challenging. (Mixed couples please help)

5 rooms have 1 king bed, 5 rooms have 1 queen bed, 5 rooms have 2 queen beds and 11 rooms are the standard 2 double beds. It would really help if the mixed couple teams were able to book the king bed rooms first making the double bed rooms available for the 2 man teams. Worst case, 2 man teams could book a queen room and bring a cot or blowup bed.

Hotel 101, remember when booking your hotel that you are checking out on September 12th. IE: leaving on Saturday unless you want to stay longer J.

As a backup, there is a Holiday Inn Express very close to the Springfield ramp but it is very expensive and not very boat friendly:

818 Charlestown Road
Springfield, Vermont 05156
Book online or call: 1-800-315-2605

There are also some local mom/pops and reasonable hotels in the Brattleboro area such as a Motel 6 that are about 30 minutes away.

In early August, you will receive a state finals entry form that will have the ancillary fees for the event that includes food, raffles, suppers and lunkers. Other information will follow as far as license requirements, directions and maps. This is just to get you started. Book fast as the rooms will fill-up.

Here’s what’s happening that week:

SEPT 9th - Wednesday Night from 6pm-8pm at the hotel is Officers Night. We treat you to Pizza and Adult beverages.

SEPT 10th –Mandatory pre-event banquet starting at 6:00pm at the American Legion in Bellows Falls. Chicken dinner with the best mac/cheese!! You will pull for starting positions, we will draw the raffles, we will explain the event flow and you can buy the officers drinks.
