24 Players were present, namely;
for the Bloody Marys at 12 noon on dark and damp day. A complete blind draw was undertaken with the exception of the Sponsor (Albie Robert) and the Captain. Their result will remain anonymous.
The semi-finals saw Emman/Jonathan (JT) vs Arlin/Dave H. and Stewart B/Orjan vs Pete Lawless/Kevin Fitz. What a final we had: Emman/JT versus Pete Lawless / Kevin Fitz. 1 end to go and P/K are 3 down, result : 3 go in for P/K and a draw at 10 each. Play-off sees another draw as even the measures could not decide who was closest to the jack. Second attempt at deciding who will be Festo Winners again came to Peter on his last wood-one down on his count but the magic Australian was able to dislodge the opposition and win the FESTO CUP. Kevin, an unknown bowler to this date, and Peter (we are still looking for Mary for Captain and Peter) fully deserve a Cup and Medal for their truly heroic efforts. A first trophy for both of them. Commiserations to Emman / JT but, as Albie said, the BEST FESTO CUP since the beginning in 1990. The support for the final was fantastic and we hope this will continue for the section.
On behalf of all members and players may I thank Emman & Janice (the lovely bar waitress) and LeDelice and the rest of the staff of Nomads for a truly memorable FESTO CUP. Thanks Albie and please come back next year for another memorable Sunday.
Thank you, Captain Paul
P.S. Shirts and Caps are available @ P1,500 for Shirts and P200 for Caps.
P.S.S. Any Donations for Emman’s trip to Scotland in July ’09 would be much appreciated!!!
Being a selector for the National team, the other Sunday at our Festo Cup competition, I was asked by our Captain, Captain Paul Bleckly, to relay to everybody there how the Philippine team performed in China. The results were outstanding and as such I have been asked to relay them in the Clubs magazine.
Including the medals won by our under 25 team, the Philippine tally was:
The team was narrowly placed second behind Malaysia, who, I think I am correct in saying are ranked higher than England in the world rankings and with a total of 10 countries participating, the performance of our National team is to be admired and praised. Not one of our participating Bowlers returned without a medal and in each of the Disciplines, save the Mens singles a medal of some colour was won.
A special mention to our own Emman Portacio, who won Gold in the Men’s Fours and a Bronze in the Men’s Pairs. Helps to put Nomads Lawn Bowls on the map. The team was a credit to the Country and was extremely popular with the competitors from the other nations. My wife Arlin went as the Ladies Team Manager, being her first experience in managing a National team and told me how brilliant the standard of play was. Presumably they don’t follow our Nomads training philosophy!!
To the Members who read this article and do not play the game, I do hope that it may encourage you to come down to the Lawn Bowls Green on a Saturday or Sunday. Have a look at it and maybe give it a go as well. All ages and differing standards play and mix well, having a fun time being the objective.
Holistic Education Center (Hed Center) continued its dominance of this year’s Mosman Cup, adding one more title to its name on Sunday to finish with four, but the final day of competitions belonged to a “spartan” team of street boys from Malate, Manila who came home with the under-16 crown.
Achievers Football Club-Spartans (AFC-Spartans), playing with ordinary rubber shoes— some even without socks—and in shirts that barely pass for uniform, bested the Nomads Junior Football Academy in a shootout after regulation ended at 1-1.
Revect Lagarto scored the wining goal for AFC-Spartans to settle the shootout at 3-2, in the most exciting game of the two-day football tournament for children six to 16 years old.
It was the first championship in a major tournament for the team put together by coach Julius Geronimo to wean the boys away from Manila’s streets and give them a shot at a better future.
Geronimo said the team used to take part only in barangay tournaments because they had no money for registration fees in other tournaments. Mosman Cup, presented by Wyeth, charges no registration fees, enabling underprivileged teams to take part in the competitions.
“Bagging this championship means a lot for my players,” Geronimo said. “These unprivileged boys [did] not come home empty-handed, but with medals and a trophy, a lot of joy in their hearts, and a great sense of achievement,” he said.
HEd Center added the under-14 title in the girls’ division to its string of championships by beating International School Manila, 2-0. On Saturday, HedCenter won the championships in the under-10, under-8, and under-6 brackets in the boys’ division.
British School Manila defeated Nayon ng Kabataan, 3-0, to win the boys under-14 title while Nomads Lightning walloped sister team Nomads Thunder, 4-0, to bag the under-16 crown for girls.
Other big winners in this year’s Mosman Cup were Miriam College and Saint Pedro Poveda College in the under-10 and under-12 category for girls and Nomads Junior football Club in the mixed under-18 category.
Jena Fetalino, president of the Mosman Communications, which organized the tournament, thanked all the participating teams and the tournament sponsors.
“We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all the teams that participated in the event, our sponsors, media partners, and all those who helped us in making this event possible and memorable for all the children,” she said.
