Congratulations to all!

MABO would like to thank the outgoing members of the Board for their dedicated service to the organization.  Departing the Board is Stacy Hawash (President), Jim Boyd (Vice President), Martha Bradbury (Provincial Interpreter) and Glenn Matsumoto (Director of Clinics).  Thank you for your dedication and service to the Association and the growth of basketball officiating in Manitoba during your tenure.


Two special presentations were made at the AGM with Lifetime Memberships into the association being presented to Wes Crymble and Dave Morphy (pictured above).  Both nominations were supported by the Executive Committee of the Board.

Wes Crymble.  Wes has been a lifelong member of this organization.  He has been a role model with a calm and forceful demeanour on the court.  He provided a great deal of mentorship to younger officials through many clinics, evaluations and as a partner on the floor.  He has refereed at all levels of basketball in Canada, including CIAU championships and has been a wonderful contributor to MABO. After he retired from on-floor officiating, he continued his very active involvement as a board member and assignor.  He served on the MABO board for many years since the 1970s. 

Dave Morphy.  Dave has been an official since the early 1970s and has officiated games at every level in Canada including national CIAU championships.  In 1981, he moved to Manitoba from Calgary and became very involved in MABO and has been an official, an administrator and an assignor.  He served as the President of MABO and has been an assignor in the South-Central conference for a number of years.  Dave has in a calm manner and has been a wonderful mentor for many people within the organization.  He deservedly is presented with this special recognition for his lifetime contribution to MABO and basketball officiating in Manitoba.  

Both nominations received unanimous support from the membership at the AGM
