CLTC reviews turf war between sports groups

Guam - The Guam Rugby Club is asking the Chamorro Land Trust Commission to intervene on a turf war, of sorts. According to club president Peter Walls, the Guam Youth Football Association is playing out of bounds.

"There is another facility next door that is using our field they have not asked permission," he stated.  "But Chamorro Land Trust has kind of given them permission, but now they are retracting that, so it's really complicated.  All we want to do is just play rugby on it."

Walls claims the use by the Hals Angels for youth football is causing damage to Wettengel Field in Dededo.  He says they are hopeful they can come to an agreement that works for everyone, possibly making a new field for the football players to use. During Wednesday's CLTC meeting the commission's legal counsel was not yet ready to offer an opinion on the dispute.

CLTC board chairman Oscar Calvo tells KUAM News he is optimistic a resolution can be reached.
