It is no secret that we hold each one of our inductees in very high regard. This is likely due, at least in part to the fact that during the induction process, we are made very familiar with the inductees and their accomplishments. It has always been our intention to give you, our viewing audience the same incredible perspective of them that we are privileged enough to have. For the induction class of 2013, we took a huge step in that direction by producing a small video piece for each new member that we are posting to our website.
Included in each of these short but dynamic pieces is an insightful look at the life and accomplishments that each one of our new inductees has lived out along the way to finding a home in our Hall. Each video can be found on the individual inductee pages on our site www.sasksportshalloffame.com as well as via the YouTube links here.
Please feel free to visit our page, or better yet, our galleries and take in all the history and heritage for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you all in and sharing even more incredible information on the history of sport in Saskatchewan with you.
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.
