UPDATED: Basketball Manitoba and the Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association are saddened to announce the passing of one of the founding members of the WMBA, Dale Gamey. Dale was an instrumental part to the founding of the Association back in 1997 where her served as its first Vice-President along side Mike Ruta. Dale started the community club basketball program out of Waverley Heights Community Centre (now South Winnipeg Community Centre) and led the league to offer its first spring league in 1999. He brought his outstanding technology skills to the table in developing different scheduling systems that are still used to this day by the league.
He was a passionate volunteer who always focused on what was best for the children of the league and will be greatly missed by the basketball community.
Both the viewing and service will be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba on Tuesday, February 27. Viewing will be from 3:15 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., service at 4:00 p.m. with dinner to follow. Everyone is welcome.
Our thoughts are with the Gamey family.
