Soviet Steeds Hall of Fame

Post by Lee Pape » Fri Feb 22, 2019 10:22 am

I would like to nominate DaveO to be the first inductee into the Soviet Steeds Hall of Fame. That is if one is ever created.

DaveO is missed, he was a SS Pin Pal to me, some how we started a conversation that just kept going, didn't know him personally, but knew his personal stuff...think he just needed a neutral guy to vent to,,,and teach a Life Lesson to. Love the one's you have, be grateful for the things you got.

Only know Dave from his posts and rep.. So, not my place to offer a comment.

But, what I would suggest is a discussion on what the SSHOF should be. Things like criteria for eligibility, frequency of nominations, how inductees will be approved, how inductees will be honored, and other details I'm sure I have missed.
