Springtime call for Wall, Hall of Fame nominees in Coquitlam
COQUITLAM, BC – March is where baseball’s spring training hits its groove, basketball fever reaches a new height and thoughts of playoff hockey are either ramped up or put to bed.
It’s also a perfect time to submit a nominee for this year’s Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame celebration.
The Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame, a nonprofit local organization that promotes the communities sports heroes and accomplishments for both a yearly and career basis, continues to accept nominations for this year’s gala event. But time is running out to submit more candidate(s).
The deadline to submit a nomination for either the Wall (recognizing achievements in the 2018 calendar year) or Hall (honouring the sporting careers of athletes, teams, builders and volunteers in our community) is April 9, 2019.
Submitting a nomination is easy – just visit the website www.coquitlamshof.com and scroll under either the Hall or Wall tabs for the appropriate form. To submit written or copied info/records, mail to: Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame, 1450 Hartley Avenue, PO Box 1212, Coquitlam, BC V3J 1S0
Nominators should provide a list of accomplishments, including details either for 2018 (Wall) or a period of some years (Hall) for someone who/a team that is identified with Coquitlam. The Hall of Fame acknowledges those persons who are community members, either raised or during their sports career/involvement, who have resided (reside) in the community for a considerable period or contributed to organization/teams based in Coquitlam.
The Wall of Fame pays tribute to the city’s athletes, teams and volunteers who reached a pinnacle of success in the previous calendar year (2018). Nominees should be Coquitlam residents/natives, or playing/contributing on a Coquitlam-based entity (eg. sports or school team).
The Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame volunteer executive will announce the 2019 Class of Inductees and Wall of Fame honourees in May, for the annual gala induction in mid-June.
