The New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame board, faced with no way to determine when large gatherings once again will be safe and permissible, has postponed until next April its banquet honoring the 2019 inductees.
“The safety and health of our attendees is our main priority,” NMSHOF board president Dick Johnson said in a news release. “… There is still much to be determined as to future guidelines.”
Before coronavirus concerns surfaced, the banquet was scheduled for April 5 at the Albuquerque Convention Center. The NMSHOF announced in March that it would be postponed, with hopes expressed that it could be staged in late April or early May of this year.
It now is scheduled for April 11, 2021, at the same venue, with a golf tournament planned for the previous day.
