Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame Postponing Next Induction Until 2022 » Kamloops Sports Council

December 11, 2020 at 10:30 am  Kamloops, Sports

With COVID-19 group gathering restrictions likely to remain throughout the spring of 2021, Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame Committee makes difficult decision to postpone any additional inductees for one year.

Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame has made the call to postpone this years’ Class of 2021 induction until 2022.   The awards that have occurred annually for 30 years now took place this summer in August in a new format from its usual large spring banquet. In response to new COVID-19 protocols, organizers adapted to a hybrid, virtual and small in person event to celebrate the achievements of these community members.  Although the hybrid event was a major success and a more intimate style of celebration, organizers recognize that a larger gathering is more ideal to celebrate the accomplishments of these members of our sporting community.  Therefore, the next inductions will occur in May of 2022.

The class of 2020 welcomed inductees of the likes of Kamloops hockey coach Terry Bangen, FIFA referee Michelle Pye, prominent curler and coach Ray Olsen, decorated figure skater and coach Kim Scott Kryger, CFL player and local coach Brad Yamaoka, and the Eve Skakun Rink, winners of three BC Senior Curling Championships in four years.  These inductions will remain the as the newest members of the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame for an additional year.
