The 2021 Roanoke Valley Wrestling Association - Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Awards Banquet UPDATE -- Induction Ceremony has been postponed due to the continued increase in Covid cases.  We want to have a safe event for our inductees, their families, and guests.  The event will hopefully take place in Spring 2022.   At that time, we will induct the five people who were to be inducted in 2020  (Don Cox, Mike Gibson, Randall Sell, Talena Williams, and Ronnie Woods).

The banquet will be held at the Holiday Inn, Tanglewood, 4468 Starkey Road.  If you signed up for the 2020 banquet, your payment will carry over to the fall 2022 banquet.  Updated information and reservation information will be sent out as soon as available.  

We previously announced the 2020 award winners.  Please see that tab for details.   We appreciate your support and understanding during these unusual times.
