The Cup is back. After last year’s cancellation due to warm, slushy weather, the annual Capital Ward Cup returned in full force January 26th under the tutelage of newly inaugurated City Councillor Shawn Menard. The Old Ottawa South Moose played a characteristically strong tournament but fell 6-3 in the final to the perennial favourites, the Old Ottawa East Hosers.
The Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC), a fixture in Ottawa South for nearly a century, plans to restore its historic clubhouse. On November 30, 2018, about 80 people gathered at Trinity Anglican Church, just down the street from the OTLBC, to launch a targeted fundraising campaign. Founded in 1881, the OTLBC built the three-season clubhouse in 1923, when it moved to its current location on Cameron Avenue adjacent to Brewer Park.
