Management Processes

 

 

Scope

The Mackinac Island Stone Skipping Hall of Fame (MISSHOF) is focused on recognizing outstanding contributors to the sport; competitors, officials, and others.

  • Although sporting records and statistics may be a factor in the decision making process, the mission of the MISSHOF is not that of an authoritative or governing body for stone skipping record or statistics.
  • The MISSHOF operates under the auspices of the MISS&GC but strives to maintain autonomy in the election process. It is a world wide organization that is open to stone skippers globally.

Personnel

The MISSHOF is headed by the HOF Director. Personnel are as follows.

Personal Conduct and Governance

The Director, Screening Committee Members and Honor Committee Members are representing the Hall of Fame on and off the shore. As such their behavior must uphold the highest standards of integrity.

  • In meeting forums, members will not cast stones.
  • At social gatherings, members are discouraged from over-imbibing and getting stoned.

In order to ensure the integrity of the MISSHOF organization, a semi-annual audit will be conducted by Hard-Luck Loyd of London.
