Hall of Fame nominations are coming up, and the winners will be announced April 1st, 2004, April Fools Day. Check out the BCA Press Release: http://www.azbilliards.com/2000pressrelease.cfm?id=207

The BCA is giving the pool public a chance to send in their choice for a Hall of Fame candidate. You may submit your nomination to the BCA. Ballots will be mailed to BCA Business Members in early December 2003 and will be due back to the BCA office by January 12, 2004, with the official announcement happening April 1, 2004, in Las Vegas. To cast your vote, you may contact the BCA:

Two categories have been established in BCA's Hall of Fame.

The Greatest Players category shall be reserved for outstanding players who have been active in national or international competition for at least 20 years and have won at least one national or international championship.

The Meritorious Service category shall be reserved for those who have made lasting, memorable and important contributions to billiards.

For Greatest Players, I am having trouble deciding between Earl Strickland (Has he been doing it for 20 years yet?), Allen Hopkins (Should be in HOF IMO), Jose Parica (First Philippino Invader and still going strong), and Grady Mathews (One-Pocket Mechanic and Legend).

For Meritorious Service, I am leaning towards Ronnie Allen (Entertaining Legend) and Grady Mathews (Entertaining Legend).

Make a difference and let the BCA hear from you. Who would be your choice?
