Tourney re-signs with Baker

BAKER CITY — Baker County Tournaments signed a new four-year contract with the District 7-1A Old Oregon League Thursday to hold the district boys and girls basketball tournaments at Baker High School through the 2017-18 season.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to work a contract for more than two years,” said Dale Curtis, Baker County Tournaments chairman.

Curtis, and vice chair Colleen Taylor, said the new district contract stands even though the Old Oregon League will undergo an OSAA realignment.

Current OOL members Imbler and Cove will move up to Class 2A. Nixyaawii, Echo and Helix will join the Old Oregon League from the Big Sky Conference.

Baker County Tournaments, which started in 2012, has a five-member board: Curtis, chairman; Taylor, vice chairman; Ann Kniesel, treasurer; Kathy Taylor, secretary; and Scott Martin, accountant.

Curtis said the group has its own bylaws and articles of operation.

“It’s been a two-year process to get to 501.c3,” he said at last year’s tournament.

Taylor said the group receives some monies from the Baker Transient Room Tax.

“They are so supportive,” she said.

Taylor said she reports to the committee twice a year — once to request grant money and once to file a report of that year’s income and expenses.

The pair estimates that it takes about $18,000 annually to put on both tournaments.

Both Curtis and Taylor acknowledge the people behind the scenes who work for the success of putting on the tournaments.

“We couldn’t have the successful tournaments we have without the staff we have,” Curtis said.
