Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame
cancels Feb. 25, 2021 induction banquet


In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary restrictions
placed on gatherings to prevent its spread, the Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame
committee has decided to cancel its annual induction banquet scheduled for
Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021 at the Metrotown Firefighters Banquet Hall.
The deadline for nominations for athletes, builders, coaches and teams to be
considered for induction had been set for Nov. 20, 2021, but the committee has
decided to keep the call for nominations open.

The committee appreciates nominations that have already been received and
will keep nominations open for the next induction banquet. We enthusiastically
encourage sporting organizations and individuals to submit new nominations for
those individuals and teams who have brought honour to the
Burnaby sports scene.
