Retired Business instructor Gerry Varnes was inducted into the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in the official category on October 3 at the Canad Inns Polo Park.
Gerry officiated minor through to University and senior hockey and I personally had the pleasure of working with Gerry in both minor hockey and the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. You can read his full bio on the MHHOF website.
I like the photo of Gerry with his refereeing equipment (right), from which he then picked up and blew his whistle before leaving the stage following his induction and comments. He wasn’t assessing a penalty, although it looked like he might.
