Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame forgoes single induction ceremony in favour of year-round celebration.
With October just around the corner, the push for this year’s induction nominations would normally be in full swing; however, change is in the air this year.
Here at the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF), we are very excited to be turning 50 years old; but in order to properly celebrate our half-century birthday we have decided to not have a formal stand-alone induction ceremony in 2016.
Rather than this single event – which is held in Regina to recognize the accomplishments of a select group of individuals – we will instead be hosting a variety of incredible events during the year, taking place throughout the province of Saskatchewan. It is our hope that, in doing so, we will be successful in celebrating the phenomenal sports history of all 505 inductees, including: 223 athletes, 158 builders and 124 championship teams, whose stories have been housed inside of our walls for all these years.
We understand that many of you may currently be in the process of completing your nomination forms for a future hopeful inductee. In order to continue the tradition of recognizing the amazing sport history of Saskatchewan, we welcome these nominations with open arms. Nominations for our 2017 induction ceremony will officially be accepted from now until October 1, 2016.
We look forward to seeing future nominations as they continue to arrive. We also invite everyone to please join us in celebrating our 50th birthday, as well as the accomplishments of all of our wonderful inductees, over the next year.
