Lamport pitch renewal

Recommended Posts

Went by Lamport today (OK OK I was checking out the 2018 gear at the shop) and was gratified to see work taking place on the pitch. Not much to see yet but at least we're heading in the right direction...thought everyone would want to know...

Good news! Thanks.

Dome gone earlier than the original plan, must be the deal TWP got with the city, so works start earlier, end of works is probably not June anymore but early may hopefully, just before the home opener still announced at Lamport.

Rumour has it Parky has approached the Mississaugas of New Credit asking if Lamport sits on a former burial ground in which case the re-turfing would be further delayed.

i expect a big announcement once the kits are available...followed by an announcement that a new supplier will be named at the end of the season for 2019.

I see on the Wolfpack website today that they have black jerseys for sale now.  If they fit like last years jerseys I would get at least 2 sizes bigger than you normally would.

Also, does anyone have an update about how the new turf is going at Lamport?  We still have snow on the ground up in NW Ontario but I hope is all sunshine and flowers down in Toronto.

Are they actually plating at Fletchers? I'd have thought they'd use one of the universities before playing out there.

Apparently there was an issue with goal posts, those CFL forks not in tune with RL standards. Can't blame them..

Will they really? What is the source? That would be a disaster. 

It's rumoured as a possibility if the work is not done at Lamport in time. Capacity only about 3,000 and parking is limited, so not my first choice, but if it's only for one game we'll survive and move on. Hoping the start on the field at Lamport this week means it can be done by May 5th.

i don't know anything about turf laying artificial or otherwise other than I had a good size lawn laid in my backyard once which took about 4 hrs. If there are any landscapers in our midst can they advise if there any reason they shouldn't be able to do it in 4 weeks??
