Bill Dowson

A letter from the President.


On March 17th 2015 Bill Dowson resigned as a director of the Illawarra Basketball Association. This is an enormous loss to our board and his resignation was accepted with the greatest reluctance and sadness.

Bill has been involved with our association for 42 years and during that time has contributed to basketball, the Illawarra Basketball Association and Basketball New South Wales in many and varied ways. To our association, his contribution has been enormous. Always working for the advancement of basketball and improving the facilities at the Snake Pit.

Also while doing this it must be recognised he has for the past 12 years been a director with the Illawarra Academy of Sport, six years as a director of the Wollongong Hawks Basketball Club and six years as a team manager for Basketball New South Wales. Bill’s 14 years on the Illawarra Basketball Association earned him our highest award – life membership.

I would like to thank Bill for all the time and effort he has put into our association.

It must be recognised that many of the projects around the stadium were achieved by his one-man working bees.  From one’s entry to the car park, then Peter Bolt Basketball Administration offices, stadium fencing, re-roofing of the stadium, the canteen, stadium seating and to many other improvements in our stadium Bill has been the driving force.

We sincerely thank you

David North
