TMBL calls out players

The Trail Men’s Basketball League is looking to find some traction and get the league going this winter

The Trail Men’s Basketball League is looking to find some traction and get the league going this winter, by holding a series of drop in sessions at the Cominco Arena on Thursday.

The TMBL is usually up and running the hard court by now but dwindling numbers have caused the league to delay its start in hopes of recruiting some new talent to make up four teams. The TMBL has drop-in games scheduled for Thursday Nov. 19 and Nov. 26 as well as Dec. 10 and 17, and invites hoopsters, male or female, to  come out.

“We’re just trying to see how many people are interested,” said TMBL rep Scott Simister. “It’s just games to get guys playing with each other and everything and then we’ll start in January and we’ll go until possibly April.”

The league is also on the look out for anyone interested in officiating and score keeping. The games will start at the Cominco Arena at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday. Call Steve at 231-6682 or Josh at 231-8250 for more information.
