Twin Elm Rugby Park GoFundMe page

Blues member and TERP President Lee Powell set up a GoFundMe campaign for the park in order to raise funds for the organization.

“Going Forward

Twin Elm has seen a lot of use over the last forty years, but the aging facility needs to update its infrastructure in order to remain a cornerstone of Canada‚Äôs sporting community for the coming four decades.”

If you can share the page or be involved in the fundraising it would help the ottawa rugby community.

Twin Elm “Demolition (Renovation)” Sunday

A message from Twin Elm to our Membership:

“We‚Äôre starting this year off with some major renovations to the club house, and we NEED volunteers to prep the place.

Now is the time for us to put in our best effort to revitalize TERP and show the community that we take pride in our rugby home.

We’ll need volunteers to:

  1. take down, wipe and safely store all of our club house memorabilia;
  2. removing carpeting in the office;
  3. removing the parkay flooring in the main area;
  4. other spring cleaning and maintenance as needed.

Demolition Sunday will be held on March 25, 2018.

Please contact your club president (Jim Shaw¬† or¬†Lee Powell¬†to sign up.”
