The Ultimate Hall of Fame Announces the “Slate of Eight” Candidates for 2010
The Hall of Fame
Committee is pleased to announce the eight candidates selected for consideration for the 2010 Hall of Fame (HOF). This year, five Open and three Women candidates will be considered for up to five spots in the Hall of Fame. The eight candidates, along with a partial listing of the teams on which they played, includes:
- San Jose Clingons + San Jose Jam + Hostages + Double Happiness
- KABOOM! + New York + Cojones + Raleigh Lama
- Windy City + Double Happiness + Kegworkers
- Santa Barbara Condors
- UMass + Titanic + DOG
- Pleiades + Maineiacs + Godiva
- Nemesis + Women on the Verge
- Survival + Godiva
Since the HOF was created in 2004, the process of selecting the candidates has been to obtain input from divisional peer groups, validate the selections via a working group known as the Vetting Subcommittee, and then identify a final 'Slate of Eight' to get voted on by the current members of the HOF for final selection.
One of the major improvements initiated in 2009 was the introduction of the "Call to the Community", a forum for anyone in the greater Ultimate community to voice their opinions about the eight candidates listed above. To share your thoughts on any or all of this year's Hall of Fame candidates, go to the Googledocs link
