A field for the Myers Riders to call home
For many years the Myers Riders have requested a practice field to call home at affordable prices. The field would have goal posts with lights and provided to our teams exclusively for our football practices and potentially our home games.
Almost every other football club have such facilities and pay a fraction of prices that Myers Riders are obliged to pay . For many years we have rented the Minto Sportsplex and have had to pay significant rental rates as compared to other clubs in Ottawa. Now, the recent upgrade to the field at Minto has left in an even more difficult position as it has been considered unsafe.
We want a designated field at Ben Franklin Park to be allocated to us for football practices. Our program has been in existence for 42 years and we have waited long enough.
I ask all those who consider our request to be reasonable to sign this petition .
