    I grew weary of writing a Averell Harriman, John Trezpacz, and Michael Flannery every year to never have them considered.

    Default Nominating Procedure

    A grass roots effort to revive the Old Timer's Committee needs to be initiated.
    Professionals should be a separate category. As outlined in my letter to Gary
    Lockee 6 July 2004 nomination procedures need revision.

    I would add that a Hall of Fame that does not include an Amateur (now deceased) with well over 1500 all age points, 12 or 13 titled dogs (if not more), at least one HoF dog, many Double Headers and a National Title among many other accomplishments in a long FT career, is not a HoF in my eyes.

    Len was a maverick, non conformity does not endear one to the establishment.

    I agree that Len should be in... But I'm talking about Roy.

    The establishment is the problem, not the answer...

    Default Revise Nominating Criteria

    Yes, Bill. That's who I thought was your man. Both Roy & Len deserve induction.
    In Roy's case a couple of years ago huge numbers nominating him seemed to
    indicate he would go in. It wasn't to be for whatever reasons.

    The drill has to change. What Roy & Len & others did for the clubs in Alaska
    must be judged and rewarded on merit not diluted by the numbers and impact
    of memberships of large clubs & circuits in the lower '48'.

    A start to change - re-think/revise the criteria & process for selection; allow the
    committee to make independent selections based on merit not numbers.
    Finally, bring back the old timers committee so as to further right old wrongs -
