The annual South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame banquet was scheduled for Saturday April 14 in Sioux Falls this year. That was until another winter storm decided to intervene.
On Wednesday afternoon, a decision was made to cancel this year’s event.

The annual SD Sports Hall of Fame Banquet, scheduled for Saturday in Sioux Falls has been cancelled due to the winter storm. The same class of inductees will be honored next year as it is impossible to reschedule. More info to come!
As it’s noted, those members being inducted this year will be honored at next year’s banquet, along with the Class of 2019.
While it’s disappointing for those being inducted, and to those planning to attend, it looks like it may be the right decision.
