I had the chance to sit down and talk with Carl Gannon. He was involved with the Black Invitational Basketball Tournament from the very beginning to the very end. He’s played in, sat on the Board of Directors and was a huge part of the yearly organization of the tournament for over fourty years. Here’s a small snippet of his thoughts on how the tournament grew and benefitted the community.

We are under way. Research of the fourty plus year history of the Black Invitational Basketball Tournament in Nova Scotia has begun. I’ll be posting regularly with quotes from interviews, found footage and updates about the project “TOURNAMENT”. Here is a quick clip from tournament veteran Jaysen Bundy from my talk with him the other day. Thanks to everyone who has responded to me so far.
If you were involved in, went to cheer someone on, refereed in, volunteered at, DJ’ed, BBQ’ed, witnessed your best friend get dunked on or have some great pics or video get back at me.
