2019 SEASON MEETING SCHEDULE
Below is a schedule showing the currently planned dates, times and locations of the 2019 season’s team meetings.
Note that MABF is a “guest” at the hotel and, accordingly, our reservations may be changed or cancelled at any time if necessary to accommodate other functions. If any such changes occur, MABF will notify teams by (1) posting an explanatory website Announcement, and (2) e-mailing every affected team at the address(es) provided in the team's Admission Application.
However, MABF experience suggests that:
• about 2% of the e-mail addresses provided in the applications are incorrect or inactive, and
• about 15% of team e-contacts do not regularly monitor their e-mail accounts.
Accordingly, Failure to monitor e-mail accounts can be addressed only by improved e-contact self discipline or by managers’ daily monitoring of website Announcements.
