WEDNESDAY, FEB. 29: Sports Minister Glenn Blakeney did not rule out the possibility of adding more names to Bermuda’s Sports Hall of Fame this year.

However, the minister said there is still no building to host the inductees and with a tight Budget, a Hall of Fame class for 2012 is “fluid”.

Government has hosted five Hall of Fame Classes, with the last one being in 2009.

That year saw Stanley Burgess, Charles Marshall, Michael Preece, Allan Simmons, Eugene ‘Penny’ Simmons, Dr William Tucker, Dr William ‘Bill’ Tucker and Brian Wellman elected.

They joined 38 other individuals and two teams to be elected.

Blakeney said having the next class of the Hall of Fame “is something we are committed to.

“We don’t necessarily have a facility to house the Hall of Fame, so it’s more symbolic, which is significant in itself and is extremely warranted by the community to recognize the athletes that have achieved to the degree that they deserve the recognition.

“We continuously look at  pending circumstances relevant to the Budget and other considerations, it is something that will remain fluid until I am ready to make a firm decision as to when the next induction that will occur.”
