Who Gets to Vote:

  • Other action aficionados that might not frequent forums

Who is Eligible for the Award
  • Anyone who the voter deems worthy of the award based on the combination of action and entertainment.
  • Whatever action and entertainment means to the voter.
  • The award doesn’t have to go to a player: a player, backer, sweater, rail bird, etc. can win
  • They do not have to be in any tournament
  • No previous winner can repeat

Where and How to Vote:

Seek me out at the Derby City Classic ( I arrive Sunday Jan 26th for the remainder of the week). I will log your votes immediately.


For those who cannot find me for some reason at the DCC – email your vote(s) when you get back home to:

LouieRobertsAE@gmail.com (Please be sure to write your Forum Name and when you attended the Derby City Classic)

Send (or tell) as many names as you want. This would be similar to Hall of Fame balloting. For example, if you can't decide whether one guy or another should get your vote, send both if you want. If you think five people deserve to be mentioned, send five names.

Voting Closing and Announcement

Voting Will Close on Sunday Feb 2nd at Midnight

The committee will make an announcement as soon possible, targeting within a day of the end of the event. That should give everyone enough time to either give me their votes at the Derby or send me an email when they leave. If you’re planning a one week drive home, you might want to seek me out.

Any questions, concerns or clarifications, please email to

Danny Smith - He should have won it last year. Again this year, he was in the Action Room every day and every night, playing anyone in whatever game they wanted.

Billy Thornton and Richie Richeson should also get consideration.
