FBA State Championships

Each year, the FBA Board of Directors selects a contest in each of the states where we currently sanction events to be the FBA State Championship for that state. In order to be considered as an FBA State Championship a contest must have been sanctioned for a minimum of 3 (three) consecutive years, accommodate a minimum of 40 (forty) teams, and have a favorable Rep review for each of those years. No contest can be an FBA State Championship in successive years. Contests wishing to be considered for FBA State Championship must contact the Board in writing prior to the annual FBA Funcook and General Meeting where the Board's selections are announced.
