'Great memories of Ken'

According to family members of the late Mr Millington, the Memorial Pool Tournament was a success.

“Spectators and players enjoyed the camaraderie and sportsmanship. In their view, the Memorial Pool Tournament is a great idea for the island and many strongly suggested the tournament’s continuation in the future.”

The family, in a statement, further said the tournament was an ideal way to celebrate the life of their beloved husband, father, musician, businessman, Lay Eucharistic Minister and Jewel of the Virgin Gorda Community, who passed away on May 5, 2016.

“The Tournament reflected great memories of Ken shooting pool with his table - the tournament’s grand prize, at the same venue - his then popular restaurant and bar, The Crab Hole. Furthermore, being able to raise funds and give back to St Mary’s church, which Ken wholeheartedly served and cared for, was a gesture we knew he would have taken pride of.”

The family extended thanks to the event’s support team, the many local contributors, and spectators and players.

“We were especially happy to see players come from Tortola to be a part of the event….We look forward to hosting other successful memorial tournaments in Ken’s honor, namely darts and domino in addition to pool.”
