This past Tuesday we had the privilege of hosting a number of our past presidents in the first of what will become a regular event. These individuals have seen the Saskatchewan Hall of Fame (SSHF) through many important milestones over our 47 year history. The meeting was an opportunity to share the vision of the current Board of Directors, receive feedback about this direction, and encourage the continued involvement of everyone in the SSHF’s operations.
What an opportunity! While still very committed to the SSHF, it’s a rare day – if ever – that we have been able to get all of these individuals in the same room at the same time. Such camaraderie and shared vision was immediately evident, and all still hold that shared passion for the SSHF. Over lunch the future direction of the SSHF was discussed and critiqued, resulting in the knowledge that our future can be very bright.
Included in this post is a photo of the SSHF presidents and a recap of when each of them were at the helm of one of the most storied pieces of Saskatchewan sports history.
We would like to thank each and every one of the individuals who were able to take time out of their busy schedules to be a part of this and we look forward to seeing more of them in the future.

In case you missed it on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we closed our doors last week to update our exhibits with new and exciting displays that are full of great information that will keep you busy for hours inside the hall. After our December exhibits were so well received we knew that what came next had to be something that was unique and would truly capture the spirit of sport in this province.
If you don’t play hockey, what do people do in Saskatchewan in the winter? Curling, Broomball, Ringette, Skating, Skiing, and Snowshoeing are just some of the sports that come to mind and will be featured in the exhibit with artifacts from the permanent collection. Also on display will be a mini-exhibit focusing on Old Timers Hockey.
Now that the exhibits have been changed over and “Winter In Saskatchewan” is ready for viewing we are happy to announce that our regular viewing hours are back and that means there are plenty of chances for you to come see everything that is new in the gallery. If you were curious as to what these regular hours are, The Saskatchewan Sports Hall Of Fame is opening for viewing from 9am-5pm every Monday to Friday. If you have any questions about this, or any other happenings at the hall you can also feel free to contact us at (306) 780-9232.
