Danelle Hussey and Jenna Carpenter-Bosch, both summer students with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, pose in front of some of the many pieces of memorabilia in the Hall of Fame trailer, which was on display at Bud Miller All Seasons Park on Sunday. Lloydminster inductees to the hall fame are Dale Cross, and Terry Clark who were inducted in 2015 for hockey, Lyle Weiman, inducted in 2005 for broomball, and Justin Kelly who was inducted in 2009 for football.

Travelling exhibit shows off Sask. athletes

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) is having its 50th anniversary this year and is commemorating with a travelling exhibit that made a stop at Bud Miller All Season Park last weekend.
“We decided to put together a mobile museum and tour it around the province for the summer months and we’re basically stopping in a different community every day, and then just opening to the public for a few hours depending on the location; it’s free admission,” said Danelle Hussey, summer student with the SSHF.
“And we just have artifacts and pictures of some of our Saskatchewan athletes who’ve been inducted to the hall of fame, and this trailer actually only contains less than one per cent of our inductees because they really had to pick and choose for space what they could fit into it.”
Lloydminster residents who’ve had the honour of being inducted over the years include Dale Cross and Terry Clark, who played hockey for the 1985 Moose Jaw Generals and wer inducted in 2015, Lyle Weiman who was inducted in 2005 for his time with the 2001 Regina Silver Screen Bruins broom ball team, and Justin Kelly for his time with the 2003 Saskatoon Hilltops football team, which landed him an induction in 2009.
Jenna Carpenter-Bosch, a fellow summer student with the hall of fame, said entering the SSHF is quite significant, with only a small percentage of those nominated ever making it in.
“You have to be the best to be nominated and to be inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame—you have to be at the top level at your sport,” she said.
“We have 50 to 100 applications come in every year, nomination forms, and we have to sift through them and decide the best of the best; we only nominate 10 inductees a year, so it’s a really big honour to be in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.”
The mobile museum is set up in the back of a transport trailer and will be driving through 70 Saskatchewan communities during its run, which should last well into the fall, with the tour expected to end some time in October.
