The Gulf Club Early Registration Rebate program was a great success with 63 clubs already registered! USA Boxing charges clubs $175 for yearly registration dues and Gulf LBC receives $25. This program returns the $25 to the clubs! Here is the Listing of the current 2017 registered Gulf Boxing Clubs that will receive rebates.
Rebate checks will be issued by Gulf LBC Treasurer Diana Cromeans to the Club Contact Person or Club Representative. Please find her during the Houston Golden Gloves or contact her at email@example.com. Note that clubs not registered/renewed for 2017 must have their athletes compete as “unattached”.
Gulf LBC Boxing Clubs Contact Info
Please review this listing of Gulf Boxing Clubs and notify ASAP of any discrepancies or changes required to firstname.lastname@example.org This info will be used to publish a Google Map and Directory of Gulf Clubs. We also plan to create a VCF file of Gulf Clubs and Coaches contact info that members can import directly into their phone’s contact list.
The LBC operates and functions because of the volunteer efforts of the members. The BOD has decided to reward those who sacrifice their time and energy to help at events as Officials and also those who serve on the Board of Directors and as Committee Chairs by reimbursing their yearly Membership Dues in the form of a $100 stipend. Thank you for those who serve the LBC! Members receiving Membership stipends.
The BOD wants to hear from Gulf Athletes! We have two Athletes Representatives on the BOD, Jemiah Richards & Carmen Vargas. They are the voice of the Athletes. To help Athletes have an avenue to the BOD to have their concerns heard and ideas brought forwards, we want to host a lunch meeting with the Athletes, especially senior boxers, the Athletes Reps and the Gulf BOD. If you’d be interested in this, please feed back to Jemiah Richards at email@example.com and/or Carmen Vargas at firstname.lastname@example.org
Competition & Rankings Committee
We are forming a committee that will ultimately be responsible for a Gulf Boxer Rankings! This group will also handle compiling show results and uploading to the Match Tracker. A coaches meeting will be held to discuss rankings criteria. The Rankings committee will consist of officials who do administration at local events but anyone interested is welcome. Contact Alex Leon to volunteer at email@example.com
Awards Recognition Banquet & Alumni Reunion
A gathering is being planned to recognize the accomplishments of Gulf members during the past year. This event will be in April and we want to have every current boxing club there as well as invite all Gulf boxing alumni to come so the event also can be a reunion. Planning for this event will require volunteers and sponsors. We also will need our members to submit names of those to be recognized and to also recommend who should be invited to the event. To contribute suggestions, ideas, names, and anything else that you want to become part of this event, please contact Mai Phan at firstname.lastname@example.org
