Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame: Annual Report 2013

2013 was quite the year for the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. During the course of the year, we were part of great growth. Not only for ourselves, but also sport in the province. Growth for the Hall saw new Directors to our board, new staff to our team, and a terrific inductee Class. Growth for provincial sport saw the substantial contribution of Saskatchewan members to the Canadian Olympic team. Rider Nation welcomed another championship team, who this time accomplished the feat during the last Grey Cup to be played at the old Taylor Field.

The history of sport in this province is stronger than it has ever been and continues to grow every day. In an effort to highlight some of the happenings for us over the past 12 months, we have put together the 2013 edition of our Annual Report. Included in the report is a look back at the major happenings in the Hall, as well as the events and people who made this year so special.

Take a look at the full report included below. A special thanks goes out to all of you, our members, without whom none of this would be possible. We thank you for your patronage and support in 2013 and look forward to making 2014 our best year yet!
