WHEN QUESTIONED BY GALT COLLECTIONS STAFF ON OCTOBER 15, 2012, DONOR BILL HALMA RELATED TO STAFF THAT HE, “PROBABLY HAD THE SHIRT FOR TEN YEARS. THE ABOA (ALBERTA BASKETBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION) EMBROIDERED CREST ON THE SHIRT’S SLEEVE CAME INTO EXISTENCE APPROXIMATELY TEN YEARS AGO IN 2002 WHEN FEBA RULES WERE BROUGHT INTO FORCE. CHANGES IN INSIGNIA OR EVEN THE POST-FEBA INTRODUCTION OF STRIPPED SHIRTS ENABLE THE SHIRT’S DATING. THE SHIRT WAS WORN IN THE PAST YEAR ALBEIT IN VERY LIMITED (LOCAL) CIRCUMSTANCES DUE TO THE ABOA CREST’S DISCONTINUATION ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO. THE ISSUE AROSE THAT THE WEARER’S IDENTIFICATION WITH A PROVINCE (AKA. ALBERTA) MAY LEAD SOME TO CHALLENGE HIS/HER IMPARTIALITY (AKA. CALLS BENEFICIAL TO SAME PROVINCE’S TEAM).” THE SHIRT WAS WORN ACROSS SOUTHERN ALBERTA, RANGING IN COMMUNITIES FROM NANTON (NORTH) AND MILK RIVER (SOUTH) TO THE CROWSNEST PASS (WEST) AND MEDICINE HAT (EAST). HALMA AND OTHER OFFICIALS ORDERED THEIR APPAREL WHOLESALE THROUGH THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA BASKETBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION, BASED OUT OF THE ASSOCIATION’S TREASURER’S HOME. THE ASSOCIATION SOURCED THE SHIRTS IN BULK FROM DISTRIBUTORS SUCH AS REFEREES.COM. IN CONTRAST TO SOME OTHER OFFICIALS WHO EXERCISE LESS CARE IN THEIR SHIRT’S MAINTENANCE, THE DONOR CLAIMED, “I HAVE ½ DOZEN JERSEYS WASHED AND READY TO GO”, SUPPORTING THE MUSEUM STAFF’S OBSERVATION THAT THE DONATED JERSEY WAS “LIKE NEW.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT RECORD AND P20120037002.
