Mcleod a true Trail champion

"...could someone explain to me why his name is not on the Home of Champions."

This letter is in response to Dave Thompson’s tribute article regarding Don (Smokie) Mcleod’s passing .

First let me say thank you for writing the tribute

I am a relative of Don’s and remember him well. We played a few games of pool in the basement of his home in Shaver’s Bench .

What I would like to say is could someone explain to me why his name is not on the Home of Champions. (At least the last time I looked) and would whoever is in control of placing names there consider putting him on the Home of Champions tribute.

He definitely belongs there and I think many of us who live in the greater Trail area who knew him would agree whole heartedly.

Thank youLorne Haas
