We wanted to give everyone an update on how our planning for the British BMX Hall of Fame is coming along.
A few weeks ago Mike Wong, Darren O’Neill and I went over to the National Conference Centre in Solihull (the venue for the Hall of Fame event) to check it all out, get a visual and start to get some idea on how we are going to lay things out on November the 5th. We are really happy with the facility and the location (very easy for all attendees to access from wherever they are travelling from).
Everything seems to be moving in a positive direction for the night with ticket sales going good (if you’re still sitting on the fence, please don’t leave it until the last minute as we can’t issue more tickets once our allocation is sold out) and we’re really starting to gain some momentum amongst the BMX community, as the pressure of actually pulling this event together comes into play. It’s a challenge we’re taking on, no doubt, but it’s now full steam ahead and we cannot thank everyone enough who has helped us in the background with advice, services and moral support. We’re humbled by the number of people who have reached out and offered their support in one way or another.
Other news, we will roll out our Freestyle Top 8 category in the next few days and will also reveal an additional category which we will post in the next few weeks. We also have another special award planned and we look forward to sharing info on that soon too.
We will also share who is going to host the event, something we are extremely happy and excited about.
As ever, lots of work going on behind the scenes to make this the best BMX reunion event the UK has seen for decades.
Thanks again to everyone who has supported and got behind the event so far. It makes all the hard work worthwhile.
