Announcement: BARA’s Ultimate Frisbee Event
With support from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, the Brunei Adventure Recreation Association (BARA) will be showcasing Ultimate Frisbee to Bruneians, especially the youth, during the first term school holidays.
Although not entirely new in the world’s arena, this will officially be the first time, residents of Brunei Darussalam will have a taste of how the simple throwing and catching actions involved in playing with the Frisbee can be transformed into a heated competitive team sport.
For this purpose, BARA has invited an American expert to introduce the game to anybody interested in learning. He will touch on the basic rules, regulations and basic skills necessary to properly play Ultimate Frisbee.
Briefing and training sessions will be held from 730pm to 10pm on March 25 and from 8am to 10am and 3pm to 5pm on March 26, at the UBD Sports Complex.
If the response to the sport is encouraging, BARA will consider hosting a mini tournament for several teams on March 27.
BARA is keen on identifying potential recreational activities that the people of Brunei would be interested in and are skilled at to not only diversify activities available in the country but also to not ignore the possibilities of competing on the international level.
“We’re very excited about this Ultimate Frisbee event,” said Adiman Hj Wahid, BARA Vice President. “Our preliminary soundings on the internet about holding this event has been very positive. I can only hope that the reality will match our expectations.”
Pics taken yesterday morning at Tungku beach where the Brunei Beach Bums were having their second clean-up. Looks like between the first and second clean-up, a lot more irresponsible people have been dumping their rubbish indiscriminately at the beach. The main culprits I think are picnic’ers and fishermen who frequent the area. Whatever happened to “Leave nothing behind but footprints”? *sigh*
