Good luck to NWBA officials Bill Kuerzi and Jaime Oseguera as they will take their written exam for IWBF officials Friday, August 9th. Kuerzi is getting re-certified and Jaime is a new official to the international game. Both are working hard and doing a great job in Bogota officiating several games throughout the tournament! Good luck!
