VANCOUVER, BC (June 17, 2010): The installation of the new roof at BC Place provides the BC Sports Hall of Fame with a tremendous opportunity to showcase the stories of BC’s incredible sporting accomplishments spanning over 100 years-including the inspiring 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Trail, British Columbia is the first stop outside the Lower Mainland for the BC Sports Hall of Fame Community Experience and is coming up this July 9th and 10th. This Community Experience would not be possible without a partnership with the Trail Smoke Eaters Hockey Team.
Final decisions and plans are still underway, but a few highlights from the items to be displayed include:
- Olympic torches from 2010, 2006, 2002, 1988 and 1976;
- 2010 Olympic and Paralympic artifacts;
- Interactive Games; and
- Artifacts representing the sporting careers of the BC Sports Hall of Famers from Trail and the surrounding area.
