i just got an email that the NANBF has left the WNBF....i wonder if they are heading to the OCB? what are your thoughts and feelings on this?
I hope this email finds you in good spirits and ready for the Holidays. Also hope this email does not bring any undue stress to you. I want to personally thank you for the wonderful years and times that we had together. You helped make our show the International the icon it is today. It was a pleasure to work with all of you. Thank you again.
As of today the NANBF will no longer be affiliated with the WNBF. For reasons that I will not go into we are terminating our contract with the WNBF. It has been a wonderful 7 plus years but it is time that we, the NANBF, move on. A letter has been sent to the WNBF informing them of our decision. We just could not bridge our differences. It was a difference in philosophies. You will hear rumors and that is okay. However, none of the NANBF Promoters or myself will engage in war of words with the WNBF or anyone else over the cause of this split. We walk away with nothing but respect and admiration for the WNBF.
A famous president wrote during difficult times: It is only a beginning, always. The young must know it; the old must know it. It must always sustain us, because the greatness comes not when things go always good for you, but the greatness comes and you are really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes, because only if you have been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain. Always give your best, never get discouraged, never be petty; always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.
From this point on we will look to the future. Our future lies with several other Natural organization that will help us grow and realize our true potential with more amateur and pro shows and bigger prize money. If you choose to compete with the organization, then we would love to have you in the New Organization. Some of you will never cross paths with us again and we will deeply miss you. We wish you nothing but the best of luck in everything you do.
Every promoter said they would miss Charlie Carollo. He has been truly a genuine and trustworthy person. I will miss seeing him and his wife Laura, they are wonderful, wonderful people. Thanks for everything.
If any of you have questions feel free to email/call. However we just moved to our new residence so I don't know how well the email will work. I would rather you call me at 913-963-5091.
