Hall of Fame of RI Sportsmen and Women
Created by current President Nick Grasso, the Hall of Fame, was an idea to promote the sporting heritage of RI. Grasso believed that over the history of RI, many great men and women were pioneers and visionaries for our hunting, fishing, shooting, and outdoor recreations. Grasso believed that time should not go by any longer without recognizing the great accomplishments of these people. The newly formed committee will begin constructing a process to induct candidates and hope to have its first induction ceremony in the fall/winter of 2016/17. More information will be posted as the committee votes and approves the final process to which one can be inducted. The inaugural ceremony is believed to feature posthumous inductees only with a special ceremony to celebrate the creation of the RI Sportsmen and Women Hall of Fame!
