Honoring Carleton Rugby’s Legacy and Sharing Our History

We are celebrating the legacy of a sport rooted alongside the Hill of Three Oaks in 1968 and 1977. A Founders Memorial Grove will be dedicated next to the pitch. The planting of oak trees and commemorative plaque will honor President John Nason ’26 (Carleton Rhodes Scholar and Oxford Rugger), Professor Bill Hartley and Pixie Newman ’78. A tree celebrating the 2011 women’s national championship will also be planted.

Carleton’s Rugby Alumni are proud of our clubs’ ability to retain high standards of sportsmanship, ethical behavior and fair play. The clubs’ charter was built on a platform of teamwork, understanding, co-operation, bringing honor to Carleton and respect for fellow participants.

In full cooperation with the College, Carleton Rugby Alumni will initiate an ongoing fundraising effort to reinforce the cherished values of our charter. An Alumni Advisory Committee will work with the College and current students to set specific monetary goals for designated spending each year (on a forward basis). Your gifts will be used specifically to support rugby.
