Pioneers partnership picks up

02 Dec 21


OneFortyOne is pleased to announce our two year partnership with the Pioneers Basketball Club for 2022 & 2023, continuing as naming rights partner for the Pioneers Women’s Program.

OneFortyOne Jubilee Sawmill General Manager Paul Hartung said OneFortyOne is looking forward
to the new season, and working together to expand the partnership.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Pioneers, and looking forward to seeing the
team back on court in action this season,” Paul said.

“It’s been a tough couple of years with many start and stops and sadly an early end to the 2021
season. We are hoping that as vaccination levels increase and borders open up that the Pioneers
will get an uninterrupted season in the NBL1.”

This season OneFortyOne and the Pioneers are working together off court as well, with Grant High
School and the LifeChanger program.

“We are planning a day together with coaches, players, mentors, facilitators and most importantly
the kids of Grant High to celebrate the LifeChanger program finishing up 2021,” Paul said.

“It has been a privilege to be involved in the program which does such great work for youth to help
the young students learn skills to help deal with life’s challenges.”

“We share the Pioneers’ commitment to our community, and value the opportunity to join forces
and contribute to programs like LifeChanger which make a real difference .”

Pioneers Basketball Club President, Tom Kosch said he was excited that the partnership with
OneFortyOne was continuing for the next two years.

“OneFortyOne have been tremendous partners during the last two challenging years, and as a
company they continue to demonstrate their commitment to the Mount Gambier community.
We are eagerly looking forward to a full year of basketball and the partnership we have with
OneFortyOne that supports our Women’s program,” Kosch said.
