The Butte Sports Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations for the Class of 2019.
Nominations can be made online by clicking here. They can also be submitted by filling out a paper nomination form. Forms will be available at Butte Broadcasting (KBOW, KOPR, Magic) at 660 Dewey Blvd. They can also be downloaded at here.
The nomination deadline is midnight on Dec. 31.
A public forum will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2017 at the Metals Sports Bar & Grill. The forum will allow people to make a presentation on behalf of nominees in front of the selection committee.
Athletes who are 15 years or more removed from high school and are finished competing at their highest level of their sport are eligible for selection into the Hall. Categories are also available for head coaches, old timers (50 plus years) and contributors. Athletes nominated the last two selection processes (2015 and 2013) do not need to be re-nominated. Re-nominations, though, can be made for the purpose of providing more information on a nominee.
Athletes must be nominated to be considered for the Butte Sports Hall of Fame, and only those nominated before the deadline will be considered. No exceptions will be made.
The Butte Sports Hall of Fame Selection will have five new members for the 2019 selection. New members are Jason Alexander, Anna Fabatz, Anna Wherry, Mike Hogart and Phil Madrazo. They will join Cheri Delaney, Mick Delaney, Don Foley, Jeff Hartwick, Deanna Johnson, Don “Moose” Petritz and Pat Ryan on the committee.
The terms Perry Hawbaker, Mike Thatcher and Chuck Richards expired after the 2017 induction. Past members Eddi Walker and Jim Michelotti also voted as substitutes in last election.
The 2019 inductees will be named in February, and the Green Jacket and Induction ceremonies will be held in June.
