Nanaimo Museum Sports Hall of Fame 2011

This month marks the beginning of round four for the Nanaimo Sports Hall of Fame.

Now in its fourth year, the Sports Hall of Fame selection panel is once again putting out a call to the community for nominations of those people who live, or are from the Nanaimo area, and have made significant contributions to sport in the city and elsewhere.

The initiative to immortalize the legacies from Nanaimo’s sports community was launched in 2008 at the newly constructed Nanaimo Museum downtown and recognizes achievement in five categories – Athlete, Builder, Media, Pioneer, and Team.

Anyone, except Sports Hall of Fame committee and selection panel members and museum board members, can submit a nomination for consideration. The selection panel will consider nominations from the current year as well as nominations from two induction years prior.

“If you’re thinking of nominating someone for the Sports Hall of Fame, but feel they may have already been nominated, we would ask that you call us here at the museum to find out for certain,“ says Debbie Trueman, general manager of the museum.

In order to help the selection panel better understand the career of the individual or team being nominated, they are asking for as much information as possible about the nominee’s sports background, and that any pertinent sources are attached to the nomination form.

Criteria and nomination forms are available at the front desk of the museum, which is located in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, or online at Nominations will be accepted until April 15, 2011 and completed application forms can be posted to Nanaimo Museum, 100 Museum Way, Nanaimo BC, V9R 5J8, or sent by email to [email protected].
The Sports Hall of Fame exhibit is located in the lobby and includes plaques, images and sports paraphernalia spanning decades, and is now a focal point on Vancouver Island for all those who love sports.
