The North American Basketball Association (NABA) WINNIPEG Delegation,
which consists of SEVEN Winnipeg based teams, is asking for your
support in the goal to fundraise enough money to travel to Scarborough,
Ontario, as they compete in the upcoming Annual NABA Tournament over
the September Long Weekend.  NABA is a non-profit organization that
coordinates an annual basketball tournament for athletes of Filipino
ancestry.  It is supported by volunteers from various cities throughout
the northeast regions of America (U.S.A. and Canada).  An annual
tournament is held during the Labour Day Weekend alternately in the
U.S.A. and in Canada.  To help our Winnipeg teams out, we are hoping
you can gather your teams together for one (or two) weekends -
depending on the age of your teams - and register to compete in our
Fundraising Basketball Tournament(s). The tournaments are open to 11U Coed, 13U Boys, 15U Boys, 17U Boys and an Open Ladies division.  The details are as follows...
