We are five weeks out and preparations are well under way for the 47th Annual Induction Ceremonies. Open up the latest edition of For The Record to get all of the details on the Class of 2013, event information, our host hotel the Hotel Saskatchewan Radisson Plaza, and the many other sponsors committed to this event.
Tickets can be ordered individually or as tables of 8. All tickets are $50 each. Please identify if you are coming to celebrate a particular inductee when you order your tickets. This will allow us to coordinate our seating plan more effectively.
Please remember that the format of the induction celebrations has changed. The President’s Reception hosted from 5 – 6 p.m. is your opportunity to visit and eat! The Centre of the Arts has a delicious menu planned and we encourage everyone to arrive promptly at 5 p.m. in order to adequately enjoy the spread prior to the Induction Ceremony that begins at 6:15 p.m. We are once again pleased to include a Parade of Past Inductees to start the induction festivities off whereby we celebrate the achievements of those past inductees in attendance. Following our June 15 induction we will have 488 inductees installed in the Hall of Fame. It is a very impressive group and one that is collectively worth celebrating every chance we get. Click on the Ticket Order Form tab below to reserve your seat to help celebrate not only the Class of 2013, but also all of those representing Saskatchewan’s sport heritage.
We hope everyone had a great Holiday season and a very Happy New Year. The Saskatchewan Sports Hall Of Fame is committed to delivering the best service possible when bringing you the history and stories of sport in this province and because of this we are excited to get back to work and start 2013 by showing off the best Saskatchewan has to offer in the world of sport.
Unfortunately this can at times mean that we need to close off our exhibit space in order to keep things as fresh and exciting as possible for our patrons. So with that in mind the Galleries will be closed from January 2 through January 9 (at noon) in order to accommodate an exhibit change. Opening on January 9 will be the new exhibit, Winter in Saskatchewan. 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.
Administrative offices remain open throughout the Gallery closure period.
Thank you all so much for the ongoing support of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall Of Fame and we look forward to seeing all of you when the galleries reopen in a week’s time. Until then feel free to visit us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on everything related to the Hall, our inductees and events related to both.
