EXCITING CHANGES FOR NAB WEEKEND!
The Kentucky Bourbon Bears are excited to announce some progressive changes for our North American Bear Weekend event, starting with our upcoming event in February 2019. As mentioned in previous social media posts, we have eluded to the addition of a new title for the coming contest year. Below is a full listing of changes to our contest structure, titles offered, prizes, and adjusted rules, etc.
- To align with most other bear-related events, we have decided to offer (3) titles going forward:
- North American Bear
- North American Mama Bear
- North American Cub
- ALL TITLES above are open to ALL GENDERS. (yes, that means a male can win Mama Bear; or a female could win Bear, etc)
- Unlike past years, you will now be allowed to choose which title for which you want to compete, instead of your title being determined by the score you received.
- Eligibility: open to any bear/state/regional/leather/bar title holder from North America that is 21+ years of age. Titles must have been won within the last (4) years.
- Scoring will be tallied by title category instead of combining all titles
- EACH of the (3) title winners will receive the prize package mentioned in the image above
- We politely request that all 2019 title winners refrain from competing in any other contests during their title year so full attention can be given to your North American title reign.
Changes starting with our 2020 contest:
- Eligibility: open to any bear/state/regional/leather/bar title holder from North America that is 21+ years of age. Titles must have been won within the last (3) years.
- Eligibility: beginning in 2020, a contestant may only compete a total of (3) times in the North American Bear Contest within their title eligibility period.
Special notes: Any contest applicant that is found to be spreading false or disparaging comments about the Kentucky Bourbon Bears, North American Bear Weekend, the contest, or its officers & producers prior to, during, or after the North American Bear Weekend event/contest will be immediately disqualified from competing and/or banned from future KBB/NAB-related contests.
