TO ALL MEMBERS: Another incredible milestone in the advancement of our LBC. Between the dates September 5-12, 2015, THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC ASSOCIATION WILL BE THE HOST LBC OF A USA BOXING NATIONAL OLYMPIC QUALIFYING EVENT!!! This is a first in the history of our LBC and a direct result of the dedication and professionalism of the Officers and members. Many of you did not understand the significance placed in the strict compliance to USA Boxing Rules; I only hope that you now understand. This is an opportunity for our LBC to shine Nationally even more. Our great friends at USA Boxing have recognized the hard work of our LBC Coaches, Officials and Athletes and have chosen the Middle Atlantic LBC as one of the locations of the four Olympic Qualifiers. For those of you uninformed, Executive National Director Mike Martino, Assistant Executive National Director Lynette Smith, National President John Brown and Director of Events and Partnership Marketing Brandon Dyett were integral in this decision and our LBC owes a debt of gratitude for this opportunity.
