tickets now available
Tickets are now on sale for the third annual induction banquet for the Greater Capital Region Track, Field and Cross Country Hall of Fame, which will honor both its third and fourth class of inductees on Saturday, Oct. 23, beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Albany Marriott on Wolf Road in Colonie.
The combined banquet is a result of last year’s event being cancelled due to the pandemic. As a result, 19 athletes, coaches and officials will be recognized. Tickets, $55 ($45 for students) can be purchased by visiting https://www.zippyreg.com/online_reg/index.php?e=1579. You may purchase tickets online or print out a ticket request form to mail in.
