Announcing the Magic Judge Hall of Fame

Hello all. Today I have the honour of announcing a new level of recognition for the Judge Program's best and brightest: the Magic Judge Hall of Fame. The Hall is a way of commemorating the exceptional efforts and contributions of the men and women that make judging what it is, and providing inspiring examples for us all.

You can read more about the Hall, its first five members, and how new members will be voted for here: http://blogs.magicjudges.org/hof/2015/04/24/announcing-the-judge-hall-of-fame/

Discussion of this can take place on the new Magic Judge Hall of Fame forums, which will be created shortly. If you're tweeting, we're using #mtgjhof.

I'd like to take a moment to thank the hard-working team that helped make this a reality:

Project Leads - Jaap Brouwer & David Lyford-Smith
Project Inception & Guidance - Andy Heckt
Team members - Kevin Binswanger; Steven Briggs; Alfonso Bueno; Guillaume Beuzelin; Carlos Ho; Damián Hiller; Scott Marshall; Sebastian Pękala; Riccardo Tessitori; Johanna Virtanen; and Edwin Zhang
Website development - David de la Iglesia
