Neil Donaldson Inducted to 80+ Hall of Fame

04/01/2020 Saturday

HOCKEY for 80 year olds were honoured on OCTOBER 28, 2019.

For the NINTH consecutive year since its foundation, the 80+ HOCKEY HALL of FAME held induction Ceremonies to honour 27 candidates in the PLAYER category, still actively playing hockey at 80 years of age and over. THE 80+ HOCKEY HALL of FAME is a non-profit organization which nationally recognizes active recreational hockey players 80 years of age and over.

For 2019, the Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Club (BOHC) inducted Neil Donaldson into the 80+ Hockey Hall of Fame.  Fellow BOHC members Peter Austin and Gerry Park accompanied Neil Donaldson to Ottawa for the ceremony and games.

As part of the full day of celebrations, they take part in a hockey game with other 80 year-old inductees. Following the game, there is a banquet and induction ceremony. More information is on the website. www.80plushockeyhalloffame.com

We are proud to now have 6 members of the Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Club be recognized by this organization. All six of our BOHC Hall of Famers are role models and ambassadors for adult recreational hockey in Canada and proud BOHC alumni.
