The following is a list of events approved for inclusion in the 2015 BFA HACD National Eligibility List System. Events desiring to submit scores for inclusion in the NEL must notify an HACD Board member, National Sanction Manager or National Eligibility List Manager of their intentions PRIOR TO THE EVENT.

This notification should include the date and location of the event and contact information regarding results (usually the Scoring Officer or Event Director).

As per APPENDIX D Section I e:  In order for task scores to qualify for submission for inclusion in the NRS, both of the following conditions must be met:

  1) A minimum of six (6) HACD cardholders must be registered, present and participating in the event
