HALL OF FAME
The GDCA Hall of Fame recognises players, umpires and officials who have made significant contributions to the association since its inception in 1919/20. Nominated persons will need to meet certain criteria and a panel formed to select those worthy of being inductees. The selection panel will consist of three current Board of Management members and any other persons the Board believes may assist in assessing the nominees.
Clubs or GDCA Board members shall provide the panel with a list of nominees based on the following criteria:-
The selection panel shall also elevate those inductees who they believe have given outstanding service to the association in a playing or administrative capacity to the category of Hall of Fame Legend. A limit of five Legends will be inducted initially and then one Legend may be inducted per season from the list of Hall of Fame members in the years following.
Clubs or GDCA Board members may re-nominate those people who failed to be inducted into the first intake and any other people (maximum of one nomination per season) for the years following.
Inductees will be recognised at the Annual Presentation Night or a ceremony organised for that purpose.
