chuckwernermemorialtrophy1.jpg                     Chuck Werner Memorial Trophy

Chuck was an avid English Billiard, and Snooker enthusiast. Chuck played in our league for many years. He played earlier at Rockwood ANAF and later at Charleswood Legion. One of his favorite lines was “ drive for show, put for dough” The trophy is awarded to the MVP of the playoffs. Chuck always said that there  always seemed to be one guy that stepped it up in the playoffs, and usually not the best player on the team. He always maintained a good sense of humor and sportsmanship during his matches. Hmmm!

Chuck and Tommy Hargreaves used to say we’re here to have fun boys.

comment: My daughter found out about the Jock Milton trophy whilst >> looking on the internet for things about her grandad.


My name is Norma and my father was Jock Milton who the trophy is named after. I knew nothing about it's existence until she found the article about it. I was so surprised to learn of the trophy and that it is still being played for to this day.


It's lovely to think that my dad's name is still remembered in the place where he and my mum were so happy and where I was born. I am sad I never found out about it sooner as my husband and I visited my cousin and her husband in Winnipeg this past June and I would have loved to have come and seen the trophy and maybe have had my picture taken with it.


Oh well, perhaps next time we come over!! I am so delighted by this discovery and just wanted to let you know.


Yours, Norma Jack (nee Milton)
