PG Sports hall suspends nomination process

The pandemic is showing no signs of going away anytime soon and that’s prompted a change of course for the Prince George Sports Hall of Fame committee.

The group announced Monday it will postpone all activities associated with the induction of new entrants into the hall for the 2020-21 period. No new nominations will be accepted, however  all nominations already submitted will be retained for consideration once the induction process resumes.
