    MABO History

    The following is brief history on the formation of MABO.  MABO would like to thank Rick Lambert for his following recollection on the events leading to the creation of MABO...

    There are two major pieces regarding the various referees’ associations/groups in Manitoba "getting their acts together" in the mid to late 1970's.  The first initiative happened in the early 1970's (possibly 1972-73) when 4 of the 5 independent high officials associations, except for the Winnipeg School Division Referees Assn. (WSD-BOA), came together with the former 'Winnipeg college board' (which was a chapter of IAABO - the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials) to form the MBOA - the Metropolitan Basketball Officials Association.
