For Immediate Release

Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame Postpones Induction Night

The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame has decided to postpone Induction Night 2020 until fall 2021.

The new induction class was announced on June 15 and includes Richard Dalton, Todd Hallett, Robert Putnam, Ted Upshaw, the Mark Dacey 2004 Brier Curling Team, Cathy Mason and Brian Todd. These inductees will be called the class of 2021.

The Hall of Fame has chosen not to hold an induction ceremony this year due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and has decided to aim for the traditional in-person Induction Night next year, rather than replacing the event with an online ceremony.

“This was a really difficult decision, because Induction Night is by far our favourite event of the year,” says Hall of Fame CEO Bruce Rainnie. “Our goal is always to deliver a ceremony befitting the inductees, one that they will remember fondly forever. We feel that the uncertainty surrounding crowd-size and travel will prevent us from reaching the incredibly high standards we have for this event. So, we will wait a year in the hope that things are that much closer to normal by then.”

When a date is confirmed for fall 2021, it will be announced on the Hall of Fame website and social media channels, all of which can be found at
