Nominations Open For Sports Hall Of Fame

The Brockville & Area Sports Hall of Fame is now taking nominations.

Catagories include, Sports Person of the Year, Team of the Year and the Lifetime Hall of Fame.

Chairman Ron Smith says it's part of a long history, and nominees shouldn't worry about the type of sport.

"I think the wall is up to 130 now and that's a pretty impressive wall, and we've had some, from a whole variety of sports. Basketball, CFL Football, Olympics," he says. "It's the builders, the people that have helped other people play and enjoy sports, there's just so many people like that," says Smith. "Ernie Metcalfe, probably one of the best athletes to come out of the area, there's just a ton of great people up on that wall."

The 26th annual Brockville & Area Sports Hall of Fame weekend is June 14 and 15th. 
Nomination Forms are available at this radio station and also at Trophies Plus at the Brockville Memorial Centre.  
Deadline for nominations is Wednesday, May 16.
