SPRINGVILLE, Tenn.- Garry Mason, Founder and CEO of the "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame, announced early Friday morning that Tom Knapp, Jerry Martin, Bill Jordan, George Cochran, Preston Pittman, Wally Marshall, Jimmy Houston and Cris Houston will be inducted into the "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame during the Annual Induction Ceremony to be held on August 29th, 2008 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.  The South Eastern Outdoor Press Association (SEOPA) will be receiving the inaugural Legends of the Outdoors American Organization of the Year for Outdoor Achievement Award.

The "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be the 7th Annual event, where men and women who have made an impact and considerable contributions to the outdoors and the outdoor industry have been honored. "The Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame, has been established to recognize those outdoor sportsmen and sportswomen who, through countless hours of hard work and devotion to the outdoors, in both hunting and fishing, have played an integral part in setting the standards and guidelines for the rest of the outdoor world to follow.

Nationally known hunting and fishing guide, Garry Mason, saw a need to recognize those who have contributed to the outdoor sports of hunting and fishing. Mason put together a committee of outdoor writers and others to nominate individuals who have dedicated their lives to the outdoors. Thus, the "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame was created. The "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame Induction Banquet is unique and one of the only places on earth that I know of where you can meet people like Ray Scott, Hank Parker, Shaw Grigsby, Forrest L. Wood, Wade Bourne, Alex Rutledge and many other Legends of the Outdoors hall of Fame members and have an opportunity to visit with them one-on-one, get autographs and have photo opportunities with each of them.

The inductees of the "Legends of the Outdoors" National Hall of Fame reads like a "Who's-Who" of some of the most well known Outdoors personalities.
