The Committee is pleased to announce that renowned Hockey Night in Canada commentator, journalist and author Brian McFarlane will honour us as this year’s special guest speaker!
Mr. McFarlane is a noted hockey broadcaster and author, having penned almost 100 books mostly on the sport of hockey. He was also responsible for most of the material that came from the creation of Peter Puck and is a well known collector. He had one of the world's largest private collections of hockey memorabilia. He has since taken up painting and is accomplished in that as well. Brian and his wife Joan live in the Stouffville area.
The Scugog Sports Hall of Fame is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016 and is looking forward to the induction ceremony being the best one yet. This from committee chair Leanne Ashbridge: "Every year we set out to stage the best and most memorable induction ceremony yet. To date we have achieved that year over year. This one being the 10th Anniversary promises to be our best one ever. And we couldn't be more thrilled than to have Mr. McFarlane as our guest speaker. We have a lot of great things planned for the event."
