Big Island Sports Wall of Fame to be Moved in 2013

BISHF wall to be moved

The Big Island Sports Hall of Fame has decided to forego nominations and inductions for 2012.

BISHF directors meet with Price Kuhio Plaza management and together decided that the current wall of Fame in the Plaza is out of existing wall space to accommodate an additional class of inductees, according to BISHF Chairman, Jerry Chang.

“We met with Kimberly Shimabuku and Beverly Crudele of PKP and they expressed their concerns that we are running out of space on the existing wall,” Chang said.

Shimabuku and Crudele informed the BISHF that PKP will be going through a complete renovation in 2013 and they felt that would be a good time to relocate the wall to a bigger space to make the necessary improvement.

“The board decided to wait till after the renovation and location of new wall space before inducting a new class,” Chang said

The BISHF currently pays a monthly rental fee to PKP for the wall space which is located next Macy’s and IOP.

The Big Island Sports Hall of Fame was founded by the late Jack Matsui.
