Default Meridian Centre Hall of Fame

Does anyone know why the St. Catharines' Hockey Hall of Fame was removed from the Concourse level - and replaced with rowing? It seemed like the perfect place to display memorabilia of the hockey history in St. Catharines.

It's actually a Sports Hall of fame, and not just for hockey.
Rowing will be displayed for another year I believe, then mother sport will have a chance to display.
The sport of rowing is very rich in this region.

Ok but it seems kind of silly to prominently display a rowing exhibit at a hockey arena ...

How about have the rowing hall of fame at say like the rowing venue?

That must make too much sense alas that is not what is done lol

As mentioned above it is a "Sports" Hall of Fame not just hockey. I believe there's a curling display or two there now, that was purposely placed because of the recent Scotties Tournament.

It will be interesting to see what goes next. I think (heard) it's changing every year or two. So it will be back to hockey.

I agree!

I really enjoyed looking at the memorabilia of the local Hockey Hall of Fame exhibit!

I always felt like they could even expand it – and feature past Ice Dogs teams and players. As an example, the Barrie Molson Centre has team pictures from previous years displayed in the bar. It’s interesting – for our fans and out-of-town visitors - to look back at all the players who played for the local team.

Then one day it was gone – and it never came back!

Classic case of not being able to do all of it right, so they do all of it wrong.

Here is an idea.

Make it the permanent display for hockey. Then rotate out different sports each year with a 1/4 of the space.

Good idea!

The St. Catharines Sports Hall of Fame never had a permanent home – until the Meridian Centre was built and financial donations were made by David Howes and the Fallsview Casino.

So now that it does have a home, the city should actually build one!

If it has a home why should the city build one? By my math 1+1=2 does it need 2 homes? Like if it misbehaves and Mrs Hall of Fame kicks him out he can still go to the second home???
