How it All Works

Nominations can come in at any time but, to be considered for the current year, nominations must have been received by December 31 of the previous year. Forms are available in the program book, may be obtained from Board Members , can be found at the annual induction banquet or here on our website.

January - February

The HOF Screening Committee spends the first two months of the year reviewing existing nominations and new nominations. The Board of Directors meets in February in order to get the ballot set to send to Lifetime Members.


In early March, ballots are mailed along with an informational document to all voting members. Voting members include all current and past Board of Directors, past inductees and all Life Members of the Bay County Sports Hall of Fame.


In a special meeting in April, Board members gather returned ballots mailed in by the voters and count them to determine who will be inducted.


In the middle of May, there is an Announcement Party in order to introduce the new inductees to the Bay County Sports Hall of Fame to the public.


Ticket sales begin. The Hall of Fame Board of Directors meets with the Sports Editor or representative of the Bay City Times and sets a schedule for photographs and weekly Sunday profiles of all elected inductees.

Sep/Oct - Banquet Preparation

Master of Ceremonies, Music, Ticket Sales, Program Advertising Sales, Plaques and Banquet Room Preparation are all organized during this time frame.
