Ian Mirtle's RetirementUpdated Friday March 24, 2017 by Saskatoon Minor Basketball.
It is with great happiness and sadness that we are saying good bye to a very great man!! Ian has been a huge part of the basketball world for over 40 years and has had a very large impact on how we run our SMBA league.
After so much time guiding us and running our league in the city, it is time that Ian moves on to see what the rest of the world offers. We want to send a huge warm thank you to Ian for establishing basketball in our city and for keeping it running for such a long successful time.
Thank you Ian! For everything! We wish nothing but the best for you!
Along that same line we wish to welcome Shana McLean on board as our new League Administrator. She will be looking after all the things that Ian did. I know they are big shoes to fill but she is doing a great job so far in getting our 2017 Spring league up and running.
As Ian's email (email@example.com) and phone number (306-382-5508) will not be working after March 31st please replace them with Shana's email and phone number. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is 306-249-4712. Any questions involving teams, practices, schedules or referees should all be made to Shana. I will be placing her information all over the website so it will be easy to find.
As for me, I will be assuming the role of Executive Director. I will always be here to help out in any way I can. Between Shana and myself we will be taking care of things and hoping to fill the very large shoes that Ian is leaving behind.
If you wish to send your regards to Ian's SMBA email (email@example.com) please make sure you do so before the end of March.
Thank you for everything Ian!
