I did not get an article into NEWSLINE this year with a list of the nominees. The ballot for the Players category contained the names of: Harold Anthony, Charles Bobbitt, Ron Deckard, Mike DiMartino, Harvey Elmerson, Connie Filley, Paul LaCrosse, Monte Latino, John Lindmeier, Loren May, Spud Napier, Rivers Prewette, Marlene Ray, Ron Simmons, Ralph Simon, Roy Smith and Roger Vogel.
The ballot for the Promoter/Organizer contained the names of: Charles Bunner, Frank Crum, Alex Cummings, Alvin Dahlene, Will Gullickson, Harry G. Haynes, Glenn Jamieson, Genevieve Lavett, Dennis Ohms, Gary Roberts, Dan Sanders, Lorraine Sternberg, Steve Summerlin and William Weis.
The Hall of Fame committee does not release vote totals to the public. To be elected a candidate must receive 20% of the total points voted in that category. Each of our 15 committee members has 15 points to cast in each category in increments of 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point. Committee members who are on the ballot, or their relatives, must abstain from voting in that category. Therefore, there is not always 225 points cast in a category. Names remain on the ballot as long as they receive at least one point each year. If a candidate goes two consecutive years without receiving any points, their name is removed from the ballot. They can be renominated in some future year.
