The 2020 New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame celebration weekend, including the annual induction banquet, has been postponed until April 2021, due to the uncertainty surrounding New Mexico’s reopening from COVID-19.
The NMHOF Board of Directors unanimously voted on the move.
The Charity Golf Classic is scheduled for April 10, 2021 at Twin Warriors Golf Club with the banquet slated for April 11, 2021 at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
“The safety and health of our attendees in our main priority,” Board President Dick Johnson said. “We also want to make it the best event possible, and there is still much to be determined as to future guidelines. We will make it special for our seven inductees – Holly Holm, Carolyn Thompson, Danny Romero, Rob Evans, Jimmy Collins, Alan Branch and Nick Pino. We will also honor the 2019 Annual Award winners.”
Johnson said it is possible Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham may limit the size of the induction banquet, which could change future ticket prices. But all previously purchased tickets and/or tables will be honored for the amount paid, with no price increase.
We will keep you updated with any further changes.
Thank you very much for your support, and know that we — like New Mexico — will be back stronger and better than ever!
