Athletic Hall of Fame induction to take place every two years

The Watervliet Hall of Fame Committee has decided to alter its format to a biennial (every other year) platform. The next Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place in the fall of 2016 (even numbered years), rather than this upcoming fall. It should be noted that this decision was voted upon during the committee's annual meeting, and was a unanimous consensus among the committee members. It should be also noted that the decision had nothing to do with the eligibility or integrity of the nominees; rather, it was based upon numerous factors that focused on making the induction process and ceremony better.

In the years opposite the ceremony (odd numbered years), the Hall of Fame Committee has decided to start a Hall of Fame member gathering. This event would be in lieu of the induction ceremony, and would take place before the homecoming football game of that season. This fall, the inaugural event will take place on September 11, 2015 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Watervliet Elks before the homecoming football game vs. Lake George. Food and drinks will be served and all Hall of Fame members and family are welcome. More information about this event will be posted on the website in the coming weeks. Mark the September date, we look forward to seeing you there!
