Pictures of Athletic Hall fire, Bulldogs Assistant Coach Announcement ...

A sad day today for residents of the Alberni Valley as the Athletic Hall was lost to fire this morning. Officials first arrived on the scene around 4am.

The hall was the home for too many events to mention...graduation ceremonies being the big one that most people have referenced to me today. You remember your grad forever. The Hall was also home of course to the Alberni Athletics, former National Champions of Canada in Senior Men's Basketball.

She'll be missed for sure. The building WAS insured, as far as I've heard no causes of the fire are known at this time.
Those waiting to know who Nolan Graham's assistant coach will be, won't have to wait much longer. The Bulldogs have told me that they expect to make an announcement by Friday. Stay tuned to THE PEAK and this blog for more information.

Silly me looking on youtube for pics. of the fire. Should just looked here!! Sad day indeed, many memories for the old building.
Bingo with Mom, Grads, dances, craft fairs, basketball, wrestling etc. Wow it surely will be missed.

On a happier note best wishes for your Birthday tommorrow ;) Hope the sun comes out and you get a round in.
Enjoy your day!

The Hall was also one of the first, if not the first broadcasts ever for Jim Robson. He did play by play for those Alberni Athletics ,it would be very cool if you could get an interview of him for his memories of the Athletic Hall.
