Washington Chess Federation Hall of Fame

Postby Russell Miller » Sat Oct 04, 2008 3:56 pm

Any one think that having such is a good idea? Would you like to be on a committee to set up the rules?
The officers of the Washington Chess Federation (WCF) will soon be setting up such a committee.

I think it's an excellent idea, at least on the WCF website, although an actual physical Hall of Fame may be more difficult to establish. I encourage interested WCF members to volunteer for the committee. - Eric

I agree that this is a good idea, but I would stress that it's especially useful as a physical site. It would be a good place to keep permanent trophies, for example, so that everyone could view them, and nobody could pawn one or refuse to return it for whatever reason (both of which have happened in the past).

Might it be possible to attach this kind of thing to an existing chess club? The site would need at least a locking room, and probably it could only be open to the public when there is someone there to supervise. Didn't I hear some kind of rumor about a new Seattle Chess Club site upgrade?

Washington State Chess Hall of Fame Committee Established

The Washington Chess Federation is pleased to announce the formation of the Washington State Chess Hall of Fame Committee. The committee will come up with rules for how to chose people to be included and how many. Russell Miller of Camas is Chairman of the committee with Gary Dorfner as a member. Others who would like to be a member of the committee are asked to contact Russell Miller (e-mail: russellmiller22@comcast.net) or s-mail: 1151 NW 7th Ave., Camas WA 98607-1803. Some of Russell's ideas are to have two types: players and organizers / promoters / tournament directors, have a plaque made with the names of awardes, and place that plaque somewhere in the state, maybe the Maryhill Museum near Goldendale.

How long should one be active in chess to be considered? How should the committee vote on who to honor and should the WCF officers be a part of the voting? Other chess groups have set up Halls of Fame and the rules they used are being researched. Researching information about the Hall of Fame members will be done and a booklet printed to give out at the plaque site. Also the information will be posted on the Internet.
