Sports builds team spirit and fellowship among Rotarians of various Districts; this was further strengthened through the Multi District Sports and Fellowship Meet held in November at Goa. The two-day meet was hosted by District 3170 under the leadership of DG Ganesh Bhat. It saw a participation of about 180 Rotarians from five Districts — 3020, 3030, 3202, 3190 and the host 3170.
The programme was inaugurated by Deputy Chief Minister of Goa, Francis D’Souza. Local MLA Rohan Kaunte, former national football team captain Bhrmanand Shankwalkar and Arjuna awardee Savio Maderio graced the event. Sports events such as cricket, carom, chess, badminton, walkathon, athletics and tug-of-war brought out the competitive spirit of the Rotarians.
PRID Shekhar Mehta, who distributed the prizes and trophies, said, “Such events bond Rotarians for life and help in bringing together a huge army to build a better world.”
