In 2018, the MoPac Board added a new honor for those nominated for the International Tankard from the MoPac region: The Timothy Max Irish Volunteer Service Award. This award is given by MoPac to volunteers nominated by their home clubs for excellent service to curling, named in memory of Tim Irish.
Tim was known as a dedicated, hardworking, selfless and earnest man who gave tirelessly to the curling community, helping to grow the sport throughout our entire region. He gave tirelessly to the curling community with the energy of one who was perpetually young at heart. Tim is remembered as a man younger than his years, an endless source of laughter and energy, and an embodiment of the spirit of curling. Those who receive this award reflect his dedication and exuberance for curling.
