Sports Organization of the Year…
20th Annual Saskatoon
SPORTS HALL / FAME Induction Ceremony 2005
Sports Organization of the Year
The Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus Indoor Games Committee will become the first to be recognized by a new Sports Organization of the Year Award by the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame. The first-ever Saskatchewan indoor games were held in December 1965, thanks to a Saskatchewan Diamond Jubilee grant, and the Knights of Columbus became full sponsors for the 1966 meet. A world record performance by Bob Seagren in the pole vault in 1966 put Saskatoon on the track and field map. Early meets were held at the downtown Arena, with the site shifting to the Saskatoon Field House in 1980. Today it is one of a kind in Canada, attracting about 3,000 elementary school students in relay races, about 850 open and age class athletes, plus Canadian and international fields in eight to 10 events. The aim of the Knights has always been to provide youth with positive role models by allowing them to participate in the same meet as Olympic-calibre performers.

Knights Offer Greetings…
GREETINGS: SUPREME KNIGHT
|Worthy Past State Deputy and dear Brother Barkman:
On behalf of my fellow Supreme Officers and Supreme Directors, it is my pleasure to offer greetings and best wishes to you and all those participating in the 44th annual Knights of Columbus Saskatchewan Indoor Games.
With the Summer Olympic Games recently completed, I am sure that interest in this fine track and field meet runs higher than ever.
This meet has been a hallmark of excellence for decades and serves as a showcase for both Olympic-caliber athletes and developing talents from local clubs and schools. I am especially pleased to learn that top athletes are being given the opportunity to visit local schools and talk about the importance of staying in school and avoiding drugs and other negative behaviors.
Athletics provide opportunities for participants to build the body, discipline the mind and give expression to the higher aspirations of the human spirit. The worldwide fraternity of the Knights of Columbus is proud to be associated with this wonderful event that upholds these values as it annually brings together thousands of athletes, families and fans for an exciting and fun-filled time.
With gratitude and best wishes to you and all those who make this event a success, I remain Carl A. Anderson Supreme Knight
On behalf of the Saskatchewan State Council and all Knights of Columbus in Saskatchewan, I welcome all athletes and spectators that have come to cheer on the competitors from here or from other areas of the country and the world. We can all be proud of the organizers and the volunteers who have made these 44th annual Indoor Games a reality. Over the years we have been entertained by athletes that have achieved their best and have gone on to shine in the world spotlight.
To the elementary school student competing for the first time to the international track star, good luck and may you achieve your personal best. Above all, enjoy the company of your fellow athletes and cherish the memories that will stay with you forever, when you think back on the 44th Knights of Columbus Indoor Games, held here in Saskatoon.
Congratulations to the Indoor Games organizing committee for again, putting on a world class event.
May God be with you all and lead you back to your homes in safety. God Bless.
