Saturday, June 21, 2014
IT'S all systems go for the 77th Araw ng Barangay S.I.R. 76-A Bucana District chess competition that unwraps at 8 a.m. today at the S.I.R. Barangay Hall.
Chess tournament in-charge Marlon Flores, in an interview with Sun.Star Davao at the sidelines of the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at NCCC Mall B3 Center Thursday, said that this year’s celebration is themed, “Padayon sa pag-uswag. Pinaagi sa hiniusang kusog sa katawhan.”
He said basketball and volleyball tournaments will also be held.
"These activities were initiated exclusively for all S.I.R. residents for them to acknowledge the skills of their own ka-barangay," Flores said in the vernacular.
The chess tournament will follow a round-robin format. The champion will bag P5,000 cash prize while the runner-up will settle for P3,000 and the third-placer will go home with P2,000.
Other highlights of the founding anniversary will be the staging of the GinangKababaihan, Search for Hiyas, Banka-thon tournament, and Kap’s Amazing Race which are slated next weekend.
Flores also urged Dabawenyos to join them in their acoustic night.
The culminating activity for the celebration is set on July 1.
