    Membership Approves the Indiana State ChessI Hall of Fame

    by [SCA President, Gary FoxThe Indiana State Chess Hall of Fame was approved by the generalmembership at last September's annual meeting. Tom Harris and Gary Fox

    drafted this program and now it is a permanent part of our By-Laws. It wasformed to honor persons that have dedicated their lives towards the game ofChess. Persons either in their performance of; or by organization, inspiration, andpassing knowledge of Chess can be eligible to receive this outstanding award. TheIndiana State Chess Hal l of Fame shall be displayed and maintained on the ISCAweb site.Becoming a historical part of the hall of fame can he accomplished two ways.

    Playing performance by winning state titles or membership nomination. Severalrequirements need to be met in order to achieve nominat ion. 25+ years of serviceto chess, nominated by an ISCA member with at least one page describing hisservice to chess, current board of directors passing his or her nomination with a %vote approval, and at the annual membership meeting nominations must pass witha simple major ity. Playing performance is the direct way to be famous. If youhave achieved 4 Indiana State Chess Championship tit les or consecut ively 3Indiana State Chess Championship titles you are in. Another way to become apartofthe'hall of fame is to become a Grand Slam Champion, which requires, withinone calendar year, winning the titles of the State Championship, ClassChampionship, Blitz Championship and Quick Championship.

    Nonnally nominations are limited to only one living and two deceasedpersons per year. This year before the 2002 membership meeting nominations forliving individuals are set to ten and the number is unlimited if the person isdeceased. Ifyou know ofan individual who has contributed many years of his lifeto chess and feel he should be recognized for his or her efforts then submit hisname to a board director with the requirements listed above. Indiana wants torecognize these individuals and is very proud of them. The nominat ions deadl ineis set to one month before the annual membership meeting/State Championship.
