50 Golden Moments

In honour of the Hall’s 50th anniversary, the public was asked to submit nominations for “Golden Moments in BC Sports History“. From all of the entries, 50 will be selected and counted down at the Banquet of Champions on June 9th. The BC Sports Hall of Fame is planning to develop a special exhibit to commemorate the 50 Golden Moments in BC Sports History in the spring of 2016.
