SwimBC will be hosting its annual Awards banquet and BC Swimming Hall of Fame induction ceremony once again alongside the BCSCA Conference and Awards on the weekend of September 14-16.
Unlike in most recent years, however, both the Awards ceremonies and BCSCA Conference will be held in downtown Vancouver, at the Sandman Hotel near BC Place.
In addition to the annual Swimmer of the Year and Coach of the Year awards in various categories, SwimBC is also pleased to be inducting the members of the 1980 Olympic Swim Team into the Hall of Fame. While two of those team's members - Steve Pickell and Cheryl Gibson - are already in the Hall, we hope to have them on hand as we induct their teammates, Bruce Berger, Wade Flemons, Eugene Gyorfi, Graham Welbourn, and Rob Baylis.
The two BC coaches on that staff - Deryk Snelling and Ron Jacks - are also being invited, as are all of the BC members of the 2012 Olympic Team.
Banquet tickets will be available for purchase separate from the BCSCA Conference by contacting Chad Webb (firstname.lastname@example.org) at a price of $60, after Labour Day, as the SwimBC office will be closed August 15 - September 3, inclusive.
The deadline for ordering tickets will be September 9, 2012.
