Mackay Airport Sports Star Hall of Fame

Mackay Airport is joining forces with local radio station, Star 101.9 to honour the region’s great sporting talent in The Mackay Airport Sports Star Hall of Fame.

Nominations are now open at the Star 101.9 website to decide the region’s six most popular Sporting Stars, past and present.

The six Sporting Stars most nominated by the people of Mackay will be featured in a display at Mackay Airport, designed to instil a sense of pride in locals and showcase ourselves to visitors.

Mackay Airport General Manager, Rob Porter, proposed the idea last week in an on air interview with Star 101.9 Breakfast host, Rob Kidd and said the Airport had already received calls from interested community members.

“The idea took off when we started talking about the many athletes including swimmers, basketballers and footballers from the Mackay region who played at a state, national and international level…and we are excited to get community sporting groups looking into their clubs’ history and eagerly nominating members of their own…”

Nominations will be open until Friday 26 May, 2017.
