December 4, 2016: The initial Hall-of-Fame Committee meeting was held. Chairperson of this committee is Brian Schueller. Other committee members in attendance included Brad Eveland, Greg Huyser, Tim Kirgan, John Linden, Brian Olson & Ron Watson. Committee members that were absent included Phil DeVan, Keith DeWitt, Joe Reser & Bobby Williams. A 12th member of this initial committee has been added, that individual being Scott Littell. Four additional league members will be added to this initial HOF Committee to make our final, 16-person Voting Committee.
During our initial meeting, the development of the rules and criteria took place as to how the inaugural and future voting process will be handled. These rules & criteria will be posted once finalized.
Our next meeting will be held in January of 2017. We hope to collect all nominations by that time and begin the voting process for the inaugural class.
