Mallard’s Source For Sports owner Dale Donaldson came home with a huge honour at last month’s annual hockey buying show

Mallard’s Source For Sports owner Dale Donaldson came home with a huge honour at last month’s annual hockey buying show that was held in Hamilton, Ontario.

Brad Hause, president of Source For Sports, and chairman Kevin Bezanson of Cleve’s Source For Sports, presented Donaldson with the 2011 John Buckner Memorial Award of Merit. The award of distinction is presented in honour of John Buckner who was a strong advocate of Source For Sports and a mentor to all who knew him. It’s awarded to the store or individual whose efforts and attitude have positively impacted the group. Buckner passed away in 2007 at the age of 56.

“Being the recipient of this award was a complete surprise, and very emotional for me,” said Donaldson, who owns both the Nelson and Castlegar. “It has been a real honour having known John and his family.”

Donaldson has been a member of the Source For Sports buying group since 1986 and not only served on the ski committee for 16 years from 1987-2003, but also on the marketing committee. Donaldson also served on the board of directors starting in 1993, and held the position as the chairman of the Board from 2000 to 2002.

Recently retired past president, Randy Hooper, as well as store owners paid tribute to Donaldson for his years of dedication to the group and the role he has played in its success.
