Fallis Trophy Found!

It is amazing what you can find in your basement when you are cleaning out old boxes! Requesting anonymity, this former Chapter President and curler (whose name you just might see in these pictures) found the trophy in a bout of fall cleaning.

The Fallis Trophy just might be the oldest curling trophy in Manitoba, dated 1912 on the main cup, and was first awarded in 1914 (101 years ago), and last awarded in 2006.

The inscription on the cup reads

“The Fallis Trophy, Presented to the Canadian Credit Men’s Association by Mr. W.S. Fallis presented 1912 for Annual Competition”

The Fallis Trophy is now safely on display at National Leasing’s Winnipeg Office.
