I would say no and no, but in an effort to answer this question, I poked around a bit to other DGHoF sites, and the PDGA HoF was the only one I could find. I took the liberty of a little cut and paste (and editing) to arrive at this proposed charter.
At the risk of a "design by committee", I will post it now:
THE HALL OF FAME CHARTER
The Oregon Disc Golf Hall of Fame seeks to honor outstanding contributors to the sport of disc golf by annually inducting individuals nominated and selected by a duly empowered Board of Directors.
Oregon Hall of Fame inductees shall be judged to fit the following standards:
• Favorable standing and an honorable reputation within the disc golf community.
• Made significant contributions to the sport of disc golf through development, promotion, leadership, or sportsmanship that merit recognition, remembrance and respect.
The Board of Directors shall be comprised of a Chairman and three Directors. The chairman of the Board shall serve the Board until he chooses to remove himself. A departing Chairman may either appoint a successor a direct the incumbent Board members to nominate and elect a new Chairman. Each Director shall serve the Board until he or she chooses to remove him/herself. A Director may be removed from the Board if he receives fewer than seventy five percent of members votes of confidence should such a vote be called and seconded by the Board members. When a Director’s position becomes vacant, nominees for a replacement will be accepted from the incumbent board members.
If for any reason fewer than four Board positions are filled and available for voting, the Chairman of the Board may at his or her discretion unilaterally appoint replacements to the Board Members.
The Board of Directors shall convene at least once a year (in person and/or by mail, telephone, etc.) to conduct the business of administering the Oregon Disc Golf Hall of Fame. Yearly inductees shall be announced at the biggest tournament of the year in Oregon (most likely the Beaver State Fling).
