NEWSLETTER: September 2021
As we roll out into the fall we are still facing uncertainty and restrictions. However, you may rest assured that all fall NAP events are held in traditional venues, with the production quality that you are accustomed to, while following all state-required safety precautions.
Please be patient as our world is changing every day. NAP will be staying up to date on all state orders and complying with them. The orders do change so the timing of information is a little later than our normal timeframe pre-pandemic.

INBF + WNBF Monster Mash
November 6 + 7, 2021 – Worcester, MA
The venue is the DCU Center – this show has limited seating so the event entry fee includes all stage pictures and a digital download of the event. This is a great way to share with friends and family around the holidays. You may think you don’t want all this but after the show you will have no regrets and the opportunity to share your experience with loved ones. After spending so much time and energy on the event, it is so cool to have it documented.
Spring Event Recaps
We were happy to host 3 spring 2021 events! The spring shows were a big hit and it was great to see so many athletes hit the stage and achieve their goals. With Covid still going strong event promotions continues to be challenging. We have found ways to make events safe and fun while maintaining a high standard on the stage in terms of the look of the stage and the lighting. The last thing we wanted was to move venues and host events at a gym, store or parking lot. The athletes deserve better!
Springmania, May 2021 ~ Massachusetts
Our first show of the season, Springmania, held in Lunenburg, MA, attracted competitors from as far away as Texas! It was a great event in a venue where no audience was allowed. The show offered all competitors a video digital download along with all stage photos. At the time of the show, Massachusetts was still under pretty strict Covid orders in terms of numbers allowed. The feedback from this option was great … many competitors emailing me after the show to let me know they had a party and all friends and family got to watch them. This was a case of making the best of a bad situation, gambling on the format and it was a total win.
INBF Northeast Classic + WNBF Pro American ~ Massachusetts
The next event brought us to Boxborough, MA for the INBF Northeast Classic and WNBF Pro American. The show was a super pro qualifier and the competition was fierce! We were really happy to see so many people come in top form. The pandemic made things more challenging but the competitors brought their A game. This event allowed us a one per person in the audience and it was really great to finally feel like things were moving in the right direction.
INBF South Shore Natural ~ Massachusetts
Our final spring show found its way to the 1620 Hotel in Plymouth, MA, The INBF South Shore Natural. With the help of our local contact, Kristin Fonseca, the show was a success. This was a great destination show with an awesome downtown to walk to when the show was over. We had many competitors do the trifecta which was all three spring INBF events. More pro cards awarded and many athletes able to achieve their goals.
A Special Thanks
We are so grateful to all the athletes, coaches, and colleagues who trusted NAP. This is a difficult time for all and we are really working hard to give you a great experience.
Over the course of the three shows, we were able to qualify 115 athletes to the INBF Amateur World Championships in Las Vegas, NV in November 20th. Good luck to all who are competing in Vegas!
