The SDABA board of directors is currently seeking a viable site in one of our South Dakota cities to serve as the permanent location for our Hall of Fame building. The board of directors are currently pursuing several leads, and feel that they are very close to obtaining a site that will be available soon to replace the location of our former Hall of Fame building in Presho.
While the board feels that the Hall of Fame committee is going in the right direction to obtain a great facility to represent the proud history of our tournament and organization, to make this institution a destination the entire state can be proud of, we need your help and financial support.
The SDABA is a 501C3 tax deductible organization with the IRS, and is asking any former players, family, and friends to provide us with any contact information you may have for our Hall of Fame members. The Association is also looking for any tournament memorabilia that we may permanently display when we open at our new location.
The Hall of Fame committee is seeking accurate historical information for all of our Hall of Fame inductees to give each one of them the representation they deserve. We are in particular need of information for those who were inducted prior to the year 2000. This information will be used to individually recognize and document these individuals' contributions to amateur basketball on a permanent plaque in our Hall of Fame building. Such information that is useful is information about their high school, college, and amateur basketball careers, their professional careers, and who members of their immediate family were. Our goal is to recognize each individual in our Hall of Fame with an accurate historical profile on their life and career. Any such information that you can provide to us will be most helpful to our cause and certainly appreciated. You may contact any of the board members listed below with any information you may have.
The Association also expects to incur substantial expense to bring this facility to where it needs to be, to proudly display our seventy five plus year history. Please consider a tax deductible contribution to insure that the entire state of South Dakota can be proud of our facility for decades to come, while helping the highlights of amateur basketball become a part of our state's permanent history. Please mail any donations to: SDABA Hall of Fame, c/o Tim Trooien, 19995 478 Ave., White, SD 57276.
