On June 30, Operation Pitch Invasion rehabilitated the soccer fields at Bloomington Park in SE Portland in a quick morning’s work. Under the supervision of Portland Parks and Recreation employees, 50-plus Timbers Army, 107ist members and OPI volunteers filled potholes, spread grass seed, repainted goal posts and replaced and repaired a couple dozen sprinkler heads. The Parks crew were deeply impressed with the speed and quality of the work — “this would have taken us weeks,” they said repeatedly — and were grateful for care which they said would actually improve the facility in the long run.
OPI has a few more invasions planned in its Summer 2012 Campaign, as well as a day of painting and repairing goal structures currently houses at a Portland Parks equiment facility. Keep these dates on your calendar – details to be announced closer to the event.
