      Subject: Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame (WECSHOF) has a permanent home

      New Permanent Home For Local Sports Hall Of Fame
      June 29, 2012
      After 30 years the Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame (WECSHOF) has a permanent home and fundraising strategy to make it happen.

      The 186 members of the local Sports Hall of Fame will be featured in the Family Aquatic Complex on Pitt Street. Designed by local builder Davide Petretta and local architect Jerry Kavanaugh, the Hall of Fame will feature digital displays, sports artifacts and renderings of all its honoured members.

      "This is a great moment and milestone occasion for the Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame," says chairman and longtime WD Lowe Trojan basketball coach Jerry Brumpton, himself a member of the Hall's 2003 induction class. "For many years there have been a lot of dedicated people who’ve worked tirelessly to foster and promote our local sports heritage, and specifically to honour that heritage with a permanent home."

      Mayor Eddie Francis and Windsor City Council have enthusiastically embraced the initiative, citing the rich history and tradition of the greater local sports community. "Windsor and Essex County have long been regarded as one of the top local sports communities in Canada," says Mayor Francis. "From the success of our Windsor Spitfires, to our national championship teams at the University of Windsor and St. Clair College, to our numerous elite junior and scholastic teams and athletes that have brought such great honour to our communities, we can think of no better way to continue to honour our local sports legends than with the Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame’s permanent home at the Family Aquatic Complex."

      The Hall’s new permanent home is expected to cost approximately $300,000, with funding for the project generated by the group's capital fundraising campaign, which formally kicks off with the 1st Annual Knobby Knudsen Windsor Essex County Sports Hall of Fame Golf Classic at Ambassador Golf Club on August 22. No taxpayer monies will be used in the construction of the Hall within the Family Aquatic Complex.

      "We have established a very thorough and achievable capital fundraising program," says Brumpton. "The local sports and business communities have been super strong supporters of the Hall of Fame over the years and we are hoping to gain their support again."

      Brumpton adds that the inaugural Golf Classic, named in honour of the indefatigable Knudsen who passed away last November at the age of 79, is a fitting compliment to a man who gave endlessly to the local sports community - especially those local kids (Knobby's Kids) who couldn’t afford to play organized sports - and who was instrumental in the development of the local sports hall.

      "Knobby was a giant in our local sports community," says Brumpton. "Everyone knows how much he loved golf so it is truly fitting that our Golf Classic has been named in his honour. Knobby had a passion for the Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame and dreamed of the day it had a permanent home."
