Important Notices

Due to the spreading virus, and the additional risk inherent in large gatherings, all of the 2020 Rules Interpretation Meetings scheduled for March have postponed or canceled.
Member packets including the rule books and new case books, as well as the rules test, will be distributed through the regional assignors. Information on this distribution will be sent through the Arbiter.
Terry Dostie and Jim Fletcher will send out some comments on the revised rules, as well as points of emphasis. This will serve as the normal rules interpretation.
The executive committee will provide updates and additional information as it becomes available.
Be well, and stay safe.

NHBUA Dues Schedule

Due to the loss of the 2020 season, the executive board has revised the dues requirement for 2021.  The amount due for next year has been changed (for those who’ve paid their 2020 dues), and the due date has been modified.  Please send your check to Duane at the address below.

All Umpires, Active, Active with 25 Active Years of Service and Inactive umpires, who paid their 2020 Season Dues will be responsible for paying 2021 dues of $50.00.  These dues are due by November 1, 2020.

NHBUA dues are paid a year in advance, and are due 6/30 each year for the next season. The fee for dues is based on a Varsity game fee for the next season. The following fee schedule is in place for the 2021 season.

6/30/2020 — 88.00.

Dues are due to Duane by June 30 in order to avoid the late fee.
