The South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame believes that our state has always had a unique appreciation of, and respect for, the game. Many who grew up here but now live in other states also cherish their South Dakota basketball memories and heritage.
One of the most tangible benefits of the newsletters we publish twice yearly is the way in which they allow former South Dakotans to return to their roots and reconnect with South Dakota basketball history. Since the 14th edition (at right) of the free newsletter was published in May, we have been contacted by numerous people wishing to be added to our mailing list. Those new requests have extended the total number of copies we mail past 1,300.
People from 41 states and the District of Columbia are on our mailing list. Understandably the majority are from South Dakota – 1,091 of the total 1,316. Of our 225 readers from outside the state, 46 reside in Minnesota. We mail to 21 people each in Arizona and Nebraska as well as 17 in Colorado and 13 each in Iowa and Texas.
Here are all the states we mail newsletters to: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
