2017 Induction: Thank you!

Induction 2017 was a great success thanks to our sponsors, the Class of 2017, our volunteers and the many parade inductees who joined us for the celebrations. Events got underway with numerous family members, friends and media joining us Saturday afternoon at the SSHF for the Inductee Open House. This was an opportunity to grab a few autographs, check out the individual exhibits within Dedication to Sport: The 2017 Inductees of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, and visit with those about to enter the Hall of Fame.

Our formal induction celebrations were hosted at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina, SK as we recognized the contributions and achievements of the Class of 2017 comprising: Stuart Cram (gymnastics), Lori Ebbesen (triathlon), Terry Livingstone (speed skating), Lucas Makowsky (speed skating), Guyle Fielder (hockey), Joan Phipps (equestrian) and David “Tiger” Williams (hockey). To each of the inductees we extend a heartfelt thank you for the privilege of working with you over the past few months. We certainly look forward to having you as part of the Hall of Fame family.

Special thanks are also extended to our Master of Ceremonies, Blake Lough from Global Regina, who also had the task of moderating a hotstove panel featuring four members of our new Induction Class. This was an opportunity for everyone in attendance to get to know our new inductees a little better, and it turned out to be a highlight of the evening! Thank you as well to all of our sponsors who helped to ensure that the induction events were a great success.

Spring is always an exciting time of year. The snow begins to thaw (although that seems to have stalled), the sun comes out and the sporting world kicks into high gear. The playoffs have started for many sports, marking the conclusion of the season. For others, spring means a new start and a fresh perspective shared by competitors and fans alike.

This feeling even holds true for us that the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Spring is the start of many exciting things for us, which are outlined in the latest edition of our newsletter For The Record.

Covered in this issue are a multitude of activities including the conclusion of the Sochi Winter Olympics & Paralympics exhibit, marked by a special appearance from some of this province’s best athletes. Also, as you may have noticed, we have a new look to our website coupled with a great new way to experience the Hall of Fame within our physical boundaries.

Lastly, but certainly not least, you will find details of our upcoming induction weekend. Included in the newsletter are details on the events of the weekend along with ticket information, availability and pricing. So enjoy our latest edition and all the excitement that comes with the season. Spring hours start in just a few weeks, so there is more reason than ever to see you at the Hall!
