Rowing Club hosts Caps:
The games today might not have been played due to a partly frozen field. Brockton gets quite a bit of sunshine but one shady part was frozen and questionable. We must give credit to referee Gerry Clayton who checked out the field, discussed the problem with both sides and came up with a plan. The south west corner would be avoided if possible. Scrums and line outs in that area would be moved to the other side. Some referees would have cancelled the game but Gerry worked it out and it was an enjoyable rugby game. Well done Gerry! Continue »

It was quite a day at Klahanie Park on Oct. 18 — six games of rugby and a sea of pink both on and off the field. It was the annual fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research and it was a huge success. Craig McLaren lost his mother to cancer and has been fighting back ever since. Jersey’s are sponsored by families and individuals for the Premier Women and Men’s teams and are presented to the players before the game. The gate included a donation to Breast Cancer also. Great job Craig and thanks to everyone from both clubs and Ridge Meadows that supported this great event. Klahanie was packed and the atmosphere was like that of a country fair. On the field it was the Burnaby women that prevented a sweep over Burnaby, by the Capilano Club. A moment of silence preceded all games to remember the two promising young players from Clayton Heights Secondary Chantal McLean and Cody Kehler who recently lost their lives in a Motor Vehicle Accident. Also remembered were Jim Porter of Vancouver Rowing Club, Kent Greenwood West Van Barbarians/Capilano and Ken Hope of Trojans. Continue »

He was the ultimate “Warrior” — Kent played hard, lived hard and partied hard. Notwithstanding all that he was a great father and husband to his wife Cheryl who unfortunately pre-deceased him.
