Wichita The Kansas Sports Hall of Fame plans a series of speakers and entertainers at its newly formed Boathouse Club in Wichita.
The kickoff gala will feature National Football League great Gale Sayers as its first speaker on Aug. 30. The Wichita native known as "the Kansas comet" starred at the University of Kansas before going on to a Hall of Fame career as a running back with the Chicago Bears.
Kansas Hall board director Tim Daniel says the board wants the Boathouse Club to be like a private country club for sports junkies.
Future events will include well-known coaches, athletes, media personalities and sports celebrities.
