Board 117 Members:


On behalf of President Ken Hamel and the entire IAABO Metro District Board 117 Executive Committee, you are invited to attend the opening event of the 2018-2019 basketball season, the mandatory interpretation meeting, on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Pinkerton Academy in the Academy Lecture Hall.  The Lecture Hall located in the Academy Building. (This is the large multi-story building off the Pinkerton Street Entrance).


Alternate Rules Interpretation Dates


I will send out reminder emails for any Board 117 Meeting.  If you plan on attending another board’s interpretation and/or hoop talk meeting you need to make sure you sign in with that board secretary-treasurer so that I will be notified of your attendance.  You should also contact that board’s secretary-treasurer prior to the meeting to make sure the date, time or location has not changed. The Board 32 Meeting is Sunday September 29th from 8am-12pm at Merrimack Valley High School in Concord.  That will count as the interpretation and one hoop talk meeting for those who attend.   


Hooptalk Sessions


Please mark the following dates on your calendar. To remain a member in good standing, active and dual members must attend at least two (the interpretation meeting does not count as a hoop talk meeting) of the following sessions:
