Bud Donovan Memorial tournament
Introduction – The man
The OMLA lost one of our longest serving and most devoted volunteer members in 2014, when Bud Donovan passed away from cancer. Bud was an integral part of our organization during the 1970's and was instrumental in putting together our first Provincial A Champion team in 1978-79. He was also involved with the Buzz organization from the inception. Bud was always there to help out with fundraising endeavours, and more recently at our Brian Kruse Gala in so many capacities. He will be truly missed in the lacrosse world. The Oakville Minor Lacrosse Association unanimously decided to name the tournament in honor of Bud’s memory for his many years of contributions to Oakville lacrosse community.
