THE PARADE OF BCABHOF NOMINEES:
The Nominees for 2013"
- by brian w. zelley, former boxer, coach and official of British Columbia.
* So far as we close in on the end of 2012, we have nominees galore for
our 2013 selection process that should begin in July 2013. So who are they
and what have they contributed to gather the support of boxing folks and
win the day from those that have the difficult task of selecting some of the many?
Early Support for Eight of the Nominees:
*Support may or may not equal success, but the eight leading nominees
with good early support include:
Ron Whalley, Mickey Griffin, Derrick Hoyt, Gordie Lawson,
Jack Snaith, Sid McKnight, Gary Wood and Jim Gallagher.
*But some of the others are getting a little support:
Three of those folks are Teresa Taylor, Jim Howie,
and Ed Williams.
* It is expected that folks like Dick St. Louis, Vic Murdoch,
Cliff Ballendine, Ralph Galloway, and Boyd Bayne will win
some more support.
But, likely the late George Nepper from the Sixties will get
overlooked as he is not known to many of the folks that are
members of the facebook site. There are others that may
do well by July 2013 such as Jeannine Garside.
* the late Ron Whalley is a well known
official in British Columbia,
