More than 35 former L.V. Rogers Bombers Grads took to the Hangar on Boxing Day to participate in the annual Blair D'Andrea Alumni Basketball Tournament.

Bomber Graduates come together during the Christmas holidays to raise money to promote basketball in Nelson.

The Blair D'Andrea Alumni Scholarship Society was established in 2012 and has been instrumental in supporting local post-secondary student-athletes, Nelson Hoops grassroots minor basketball initiatives, the Kootenay Chill Club Basketball program, the LVR basketball programs, and the West Kootenay Men's Basketball League through scholarships, donations, and equipment.

Mallard’s Source for sports would like to salute the Bomber Grads with Team of the Week.

The tournament was won by the Grads 1989-2003. For more information on how to donate or get involved with initiatives run by the Blair D'Andrea Alumni Scholarship Society please email bomber.alumni@gmail.com.
