“Sound Body in Sound Mind”. This is exactly what KKK did on Friday 27th March 2015 at Al-Sahel Sports Club in Abu-Halifa, Kuwait, by conducting its Annual Sports day.
All the members, adults and children gathered at Al-Sahel sports club and started off with a ‘WALKATHON’ session as a prelude to warm up for the various sports events to follow. After the ‘WALKATHON’ and light breakfast, the president of the Koota Mr.Sudhir Shenoy declared open the Sports meet of KKK.
Every year KKK conducts this out-door sports day, where members and specially children enjoy this healthy outing. The members and children of the Koota are divided into four houses named after the four rivers in Karnataka viz., Sharavathi, Netravathi, Hemavathi and Cauvery. There will be individual track events, games and as well as intra-houses games.
The sports committee headed by Mr. Ram Kumar organized and conducted all the sports events in a very smooth manner. The entire sports committee came out with an innovative idea of donning a T-Shirt with KKK logo inscribed and showing they were from sports committee, organizing and conducting the sports events for the day. All the members appreciated this innovative style from the sports committee.
It was very nice to see that everybody starting from a toddler to aged members had one or the other games to play. For toddler to 6 years they had Frog race and bucketing the ball. Potato race, lemon & spoon race for children from 6th to 10th standard boys and girls. Running race for children from 2-6th standard. A nice tiring game of Football for boys from 6th to 10th Standard where the boys were divided into groups Hoysala and Chalukya (Names of Kings from Karnataka) where Hoysala boys won the tournament. There was throw ball game for the ladies and Volley ball game for men played between intra houses. In throw ball for the ladies Hemavathi house was the winner and in Volley ball for the men Sharavathi took the credit. A new game was introduced for adults and children, “Hop & Catch” (known as “Kuntata” in Kannada) became an instant success among the members. For this innovative game introduced, Cauvery house took the credit as winner. There was little fun after the lunch, members enjoyed a game of ‘Lagori’, Sharavathi was declared as the winners.
In all members and children enjoyed a memorable whole day outing with nice lunch served by Udayam restaurant. To raise the moraleof our children and to make sure that our children remember KKK as they grow up, individual cups were presented to all the winners and runners among the children. It was really nice to see these proud and happy children.
Well done Sports Committee and well done Executive committee for organizing this fun-filled day for members. Three cheers to KKK!!!
