The OG Ironmen crew starting with founders Rick and "Machinegun Mike" Baird.
This is just what I pulled off the top of my head. I'll edit as I get more on paper

The ENTIRE crew from the first game ever played.

As for players, there are scores people just from the 80's and early 90's that would fill up the first 5 classes of inductees.
There needs to be a selection committee of at least 100 people comprised from each aspect within the industry and then start at the beginning.
It's not a popularity contest but a true selection based solely on what these people have done for the sport.
Divisions maybe? Industry / Players

Id put the men that played the very first game of paintball ever and the people who founded the NPPL..... Anything else would make this whole thing pointless. You can ruin it after for all I care but at least try to do it right the first time before its made a joke.
