Peter is not receiving visitors at this time but if you could keep him in your thoughts and prayers we're sure it would be much appreciated by both he and his family. Cards and notes can be sento his home address: Peter Webb P.O.Box 74 Stetson Maine 04488.

Concerning Uniforms
from March 2019 Council Meeting
  • Stay with the existing IAABO jacket that has been used by members in the past.
  • Eliminate the use of the jacket completely, as a crew option for that game.
  • Crews decide, for regular season games, if they wear gray or black and white, with gray being the default color.


Please feel free to email any questions or concerns that might arise during the season to Emil Genest.
