BIS #2229 SHELTER BOYS PLAY HOCKEY
RAJNANDGAON, JANUARY 19, 2011: Rajnandgaon is a district in the state of Chattisgarh. The district has a rich culture of sports, which has produced many national and international players. Rajnandgaon is well known as “Nursery of Hockey” and has a great history for organizing hockey tournaments every year at national level.
Seven of our Shelter boys participated in the Mahant Sareshwar Das Memorial All India Hockey Tournament, which started on January 13, 2011. Abhi-Shelter Don Bosco lost to the local players of SAI training centre Rajnandgaon by 6-1. The mayor of the town hosted a meal for the boys, and the local press covered the event even with the photos of our boys.
The tournament has generated great enthusiasm in our boys who have promised to give their best in the near future. We are grateful to Mr. Negi and his team for giving Shelter Don Bosco an experience of a lifetime.
