Caterets Islanders get sports gears for tourney

first_imgCommunity sports BY ROMULUS MASIU The Australian High Commission Buka office has donated sporting equipment to Carterets Islanders for their Christmas sporting festival at the end of this year. First secretary Clayton Harrington was on hand to present the equipment which includes rugby balls, volleyballs and soccer balls to the Autonomous Bougainville Government vice-president and Member for Atolls Raymond Masono at his office in Buka. Masono, who is a Carterets Islander, thanked the Australian High Commission through Harrington for the generous assistance towards his people who will partake in the bi-annual event on the island this Christmas period. Harrington said the Australian government and its people are always supportive of sporting cultures and is proud to be part of the sporting festival of the atolls community on Carterets. This year’s bi-annual event will be hosted by the Piul Islanders with coordinator Raymond Keso on hand to receive the equipment from Australian High Commission and check on other business houses and North Bougainville MP William Nakin and regional MP Joe Lera’s office for assistance towards the tournament. Keso said the last tournament was held in 2017 and hosted by the Yangain Islanders with more than 500 youths battling for the Vice President’s Cup. This year’s tournament will be named Bishop’s Cup in honor of one of Carterets Islands’ Bishop of the Catholic church Bishop John Bosco Baremes who is currently the Bishop of Vanuatu. The bi-annual sporting festival was first introduced to the islanders in 1993 as a normal tradition for the atolls people. The event will see the codes of volleyball, soccer and rugby 7s for both men and women. The boxing tournament is scheduled for June next year.last_img read more
