Mike Mitruk Bursary Awards

Mike Mitruk was a long-time member of both the Niagara District Basketball Referee's Association and the Tribune Tournament Basketball Committee. Following is death in 1987, it was the unanimous view of the Tournament Committee that an award should be made in his memory.

The Tribune Tournament Executive made a decision to present an annual bursary to a member of the N.D.B.R.A. who in the previous summer attended a basketball camp to upgrade his or her officiating skills. The recipient will receive a cheque from the Committee for $300 during the presentations on the final night of the tournament.
