Tom Huston Classic
Long-time Red Wing supporter, Tommy Huston passed away July 24, 2007 at the age of 93 years. To honor Tommy, the Weyburn Red Wings have dedicated their home game of the annual New Years match up between the Red Wings and the Estevan Bruins to him.
Tommy was a faithful supporter of the Weyburn Red Wings since their inception in 1961. He served on the Board of Directors as President and Treasurer. Throughout his many years with the Wings, he handled the program write-ups, trophies, marketing, selling hockey pool boards as well as many other jobs. Even as a 93 year old he numbered and folded programs, sold his hockey boards and distributed the winnings around Weyburn, got the donations from various sponsors for program prizes, and looked after the game program lucky numbers.
Tommy was the recipient of the Golden Spike Award in 1984. In January, 2007 City Council named the road south of Crescent Point Place after him in recognition of the work he did for the Red Wings, Minor Hockey and Figure Skating. He was honored in March, 2007 as Red Wing Volunteer of the Year.
Tommy has been greatly missed by the entire Red Wing Organization and the community.
