Rugby Pavilion Pathway Stones


Ovalum Pilam Qui Meruit Ferat

(Let the oval ball go to those who have worked hard to deserve it)

The Derek Hyde-Lay Pavilion and Canada Field are bastions of rugby in Canada.

A pathway connects them, travelled each year by athletes representing Shawnigan on the field of play. Please join us on our mission to honour and uphold the legacy of Shawnigan Rugby, while showing your support for our athletes by paving their pathway to success on the field and beyond.

You can show your support for the black & gold for generations to come, and join Friends of Shawnigan Rugby, by purchasing an engraved stone on the new Pavilion Pathway. Your stone can be engraved with
your name, or that of a person, family, or organization that you want to honour.
