June 10th is the Team Open:
You do not NEED to be a Bass Nation member to fish.
Nets are allowed.
We would like you to consider sticking around on June 11, if you can, to help out with the youth tournaments the next day if we need captains.
June 11th is the HS/JR NMBN #1:
You must be a Bass Nation member to fish, boat captains do not need to be members.
There will be 2 HS anglers in each boat and 2 JR anglers in each boat.
Plaques to top 3 teams and big bass (boat captains also receive plaques).
Please let us know if you have an angler that intends to fish but needs a boat captain.
Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

NMBN would like to thank our 2023 Gold sponsors and encourage everyone to do business with these great businesses. Our sponsors include:
2023 NMBN Dues
There are 4 separate dues that need to be paid to be in good standing:
Bassmaster - varies but roughly $15 a year
Bass Nation - $30 for adults 18 and older, $10 for under 18
NM Bass Nation - $40 for adults, $0 for HS/Jr, $0 for members that only volunteer
Club or NM - this is determined by your club or NMBN At Large if not joining a club
The Bassmaster membership is just the magazine and membership is required to participate in any B.A.S.S. events.
Bass Nation adult dues are $30 for 2023 and $10 for youth anglers. This is required to participate in any event hosted by the NMBN.
Your NMBN dues will be one of the following:
member of a current NM club in good standing $40 (same as it was)
member of the state club with a geographical nexus to NM (At Large club) $70
member of the state club outside a geographical nexus to NM (At Large club) $220.
The At Large member will pay a total of $100 or $250 depending on their geographical location which includes the Bass Nation dues. This is to prevent members from joining NM Bass Nation just to be able to participate in our qualifiers or at Regionals, we are putting our members first.
The volunteer and youth rate is $0.
If you are adult member that is not going to participate in tournaments, but would like to be a member and/or volunteer, you will only need to pay Bassmaster and Bass Nation dues, your state dues will be waived.
If you are joining a club and wish to participate in tournaments, your club will collect and pay your respective dues within your club, then forward your state dues and required waiver to the Treasurer. If you want to join the state level club, the At Large, you will pay your Bass Nation dues and state dues through the President or Treasurer.
(checks made payable to NM Bass Nation or NMBN)

Format is best 3 of 5 events for qualifiers. You do not need to go out of state to qualify. You don't need to go to a specific venue if you don't like it. We felt this was the best compromise based on member feedback.
