Default Official Revvers Bros. HALL OF FAME nominations.

Hear ye, hear ye! I am proposing the first and original Revver's Hall of Fame Nominations:

We have 220 members and I feel that it is time to recognize those Revver's who have went WAY beyond the call of duty when it comes to Revving and recognize them here.

Nominees must have shown an outstanding willingness to go fast (whether achieved or not!)
They must not have all of their faculties and or good judgement
And their accomplishments must be documented on RCU

I would ask that at least 3 Revvers other than the person who nominated the individual to ratify the nomination and I/we will keep track of the Hall of Famers.

I would like to put forth as the first nominee for the Revvers Hall of Fame:

Hall of Fame Nominee:
Chuck Auger-
Evidence- This is a guy who put a Rossi-65 then an 81 DF engine on a Whiplash and got video of it. He gave good advice but was always a few degrees from neutral...He even had a crazy avatar thingee- He is a legend in the Brotherhood even though he has not beena round in awhile. (Rumor has it, he is like 3D flying or something)

So what say you Revvers? Will you second my nomination or do you have a nomination of your own? (Flyboy Dave for example???)

James

I second your nomination. Even though I never met him, I will take your word for it. As a point of interest, Chuck Auger is flying electrics now...

I nominate vicman because he has traveled further than anyone to attend a Revvers meet (all the way across the USA!) and he did it twice!

He has created the most killer Revver Brotherhood logos and crafted them in metal.

Wow, Thanks Tom! To be considered in the same league as Chuck Auger is humbling to say the least[sm=sleeping.gif]

Chuck truly is a legend in the brotherhood.
I hereby second brother Razor's nomination of Mr. Auger. He was the daddy rabbit there for a long time and I miss his input.

As far as a nomination goes I think you brother James (Razor) have been the poster child of the "not all there corps" and true go fast guy since day one.
Also the name of the street leading to the RBHOF should be named Flyboy Dave. Anyone else down with the clown

I ratify the Vicman. I think that the nominees should be required to post some pics of their faster or wilder planes though...

Well that excludes me! [sm=bananahead.gif]

LD,
I agree with you 100%. I was going to put his name in the hat too but I already had Razor and Dave. Excellent call on CP. He is a really good guy, we had a great time flying togeather.
That little yellow Mustang is the sickest 1/2a bird I have ever seen! Yep, CP is the real deal!

Look closely at the wrist shot!
If you have ever followed one of his build threads you will notice a close similarity. The camera angle and personal exposure to me should eliminate my hairless wrist.[sm=wink_smile.gif]

I hated to leave Casa CP and look forward to the next time I can get out to Seattle, I made a great friend that day![8D]

I accept the nomination, but the list of guys who should be in on this is a long one.
What about the advice givers? Bob27s, HighPlains, Daven, ILoveJets, etc? The time they spend here is of great value.
My favorite was Der Stuermann, he had that no BS, "do you want to go fast or what?" approach I got a kick out of.
My turn to nominate a couple of thread posters...Mike Conners, SpeedBoy and FreakinFast.
We should petition Chuck Auger to return, same goes with Rudeboy...he always had something good to offer.
Of all the guys who post here, the one I envy the most is Roger Menke. 330 days per year of nice weather, great looking field, a club full of guys to race, a stable full of hot planes? Imagine flying planes at that level into your 70s? I'll be ready for rubberband power by then.

CP good nod,

On Freakinfast, Roger Meneke and I would like to add Troy to the list.

These guys (and CP) have unselfishly provided a great deal of freeflowing practical advise and really helped "crack the code"

I have to put in for Vicman as well, he went out of his way to make another Revver/Racer welcome to the brotherhood.

Of course I guess it would go without saying that Flyboy Dave has to have a nomination as well. One for going fast, and two just for keeping up with us.

rmenke is a nut with his Webra-55 claims...LOL I am 2nd for Bob27...I call him a friend even though we have never met.

I figured at some point we would just end up all nominating each other but it still seemed fun. I tried to put up someone for the original post who I do NOT know. Super-Dave or Vic would have been nepotism!

Ratified:

Chuck Auger
Vicman
Flyboy Dave
Combatpigg
Freakinfast
Roger Menke
Troy
Bob27

How about a "Wall of Fame" or something, make a sticky and have each member's picture up for all of us to see. Or maybe it'd be more like the "Post Office Wall"

Sweet Vic-bro! I do not have that pic so I saved it just now....Good times man hopefully we can do it again!

Best of luck at the NC SPeed finals. Did you end up hiring Fonzie to jump the shark at half-time?

I have some pics of FBD but the witness protection program will not allow me to post them-
