The World Croquet Federation (WCF) has announced the first inductions to the newly formed WCF Hall of Fame.
Devised to meet the requirements laid down by the founders of the Federation, "to make awards to those who have contributed to the achievement of the Federation's aims", the Hall of Fame is virtual, existing only through the WCF web site.
Each year no more than 5 persons who meet the exacting criteria, can be inducted, thus making it a very special group of croquet enthusiasts and supporters indeed.
The WCF Hall of Fame Committee of four persons, led by their Chairman, Rhys Thomas (USA), made the 5 difficult choices from the nominations received.
Tom Armstrong, AUS
Ashley Heenan OBE, NZ
Sir MacPherson Robertson KBE, AUS
Arthur Ross, NZ
John Solomon, ENG
Full details of the achievements of each inductee can be seen on the WCF web site.
Nominations for the 2007 induction will open to the public on 1st January 2007. It will automatically include all those nominated in 2006, but who were unsuccessful on this occasion.
