For those who have questions on how the Paintball Hall of Fame operates.

Hey everyone. Saw you had some questions on the Paintball Hall of fame.
When the idea was come up with we talked to some of the people that are widely thought of as Legends of the sport on what we would need to do to give the HOF the credibility within the player's eyes. So we came up with a Plan.

1) Start with the first class of people that unquestioned Legends of the sport and willing to work with other Legendary people to create a board of voters. This board set up a set of rules and guidelines that assure that this doesn't become a popularity contest. The people who are on the board and vote are anonymous. this keeps them from being able to be influenced by any outside resources lobbying for their favorite legend to become a Hall of famer.

2)The board created categories to make sure that all types of players, innovators, field owners, media, and unfortunately posthumously. As was pointed out they have focused on some of the pioneers of the sport so they can be honored and thanked in person whenever possible. I know personally, I would have liked to see both Bob and Sal be handed their awards.

3) Modern era players and such will be added but by the very nature of a HOF it becomes somewhat of a lifetime achievement award. So there are many very worthy people who deserve the honor we have decided on certain rules on class size and that when someone gets in has no bearing on ranking their importance to the sport. Being first class in or the most recent class in, they are all equally important to our history.

4) Many, myself included do not personally know the story behind every Legend that is in or will be in which is why I do not get a vote either, LOL. But that is exactly why the HOF is so important. To tell the history of how we got to where we are. Not everyone will agree with everyone who gets in or when, but I can promise it is being taken very seriously by those who do vote.

5) Finally, it made sense to us at CPX Events to partner with the Legends to set this up and financially support it by providing funds for the plaques and nameplates the Legends receive. We also work alongside the traveling paintball museum to provide players the chance to follow and be part of history.

Hopefully, I answered some of your questions and please ask anything you would like and I'll answer the best I can. Please go to the HOF page https://www.facebook.com/theofficial...allhalloffame/ and give it a like and if you want to share with your friends who play so we can celebrate the sport we love together.

FRED!

Does this mean we can get him to Living Legends next year? That's only been a crusade since Legends 1. Nobody wears Tiger Stripe quite like Fred.

We sure hope he will be joining us. We are going to do a large HOF intro since we will have the 2020 and 2021 class both going in.

I nominate myself for top poo-poster of nonsense in the PBN forums.
I also second the nomination with my other hand.

I have then gone online to Amazon to buy plastic hands in bulk for continual nominations.
I dare you to match the spending power of my stimulus check and repeated approvals for credit cards.
ALL THE NOMINATIONS

I also award myself a trophy.

I then motion to.the bathroom. I then second that motion. The army of plastic hands agree.

Time to drop another post.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
