Sports nom­i­na­tions ex­pected to in­crease

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

There may be a rise in the num­ber of nom­i­na­tions for the Porirua Sports Awards now that choices can be made on­line.

Work be­hind the scenes is well un­der way for this year’s cer­e­mony, which takes place at Te Rau­paraha Arena on Novem­ber 13.

New judges are likely to come on board and some new tro­phies have been mooted, as well.

The nom­i­na­tion pe­riod is from Septem­ber 1, 2013, to Au­gust 31, 2014.

Awards or­gan­iser Lee Adam­son, from Porirua Com­mu­nity Trust, said the process had been sim­pli­fied for in­di­vid­u­als and clubs to make nom­i­na­tions.

‘‘We want to be able to give people the op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate all year round, rather than dur­ing a spec­i­fied pe­riod,’’ she said.

‘‘In the past, some of the sum­mer sports have tended to be for­got­ten. A lot of people pre­fer do­ing things on­line these days – it’s just the ease of click­ing a few keys and you’re done.’’

Adam­son said one nom­i­na­tion from a mi­nor­ity sport had al­ready been re­ceived via the trust’s web­site, and she hoped many more came in via that method.

‘‘I’m sure we will get more nom­i­na­tions this way and that’s got to be a good thing for all the sports in Porirua.’’

The trust meets later this month to fi­nalise judges and tro­phies.

Any­one want­ing to make a nom­i­na­tion for a sportsper­son, team, coach or ser­vice to sport award, go to poriru­a­com­mu­nity and click on Porirua Sports Awards. You can still make a nom­i­na­tion via mail to the trust’s of­fice in Bridge­point, Mana.

Any­one want­ing to spon­sor a ta­ble or need­ing in­for­ma­tion can email Lee Adam­son at
