Dear Colleague:

        SUNY Delhi is looking forward to hosting our nineteenth consecutive NJCAA Division III National
Basketball Tournament. We are excited about our 2009 version of this prestigious event and I personally am
looking forward to my first tournament as director. The committee has worked hard to insure that the
experience of your District's representative will be enjoyable. I have enclosed information concerning the
tournament and hope to see your team here on March 12th, 13th, and 14th.

          We will ask each school to pay $ 20.00 per person to attend the tournament banquet. As you know
this is an outstanding meal and wonderful experience for the players and coaches. There will also be a $10.00
per game charge for videotapes professionally produced for your games.

         One of the most difficult tasks is putting together a guality program. You can start now preparing
for the National Tournament. When you schedule your team picture this year, make sure your numbers
are showing and your picture is a high quality 5" by 7" or 8" by 10". If your team is a contender, it is
imperative we have your roster, logo, and team picture no later than February 20, 2009. A roster form is
attached for you to complete. The easiest way for us to process pictures is through email. If you could
send the pictures and logos as a hi res JPEG with at least 600 dpi format to or 23
Sanford Hall by the above due date, it will make those last minute additions and the quality of the program
much better.

        Thank you for your cooperation in making our tournament a success. We wish you luck and good
fortune as you complete the remainder of your season.
