Assalamualaikum and hello! How’s everyone? How’s the holidays? I hope it has been a good break for all so far. For those who are unaware, the BruONZ summer games will be coming soon and Sydney will be the host this year.
This means a lot of things and ultimately a lot of work. The BASS committee will appreciate all the help that we can get with managing the sport events and lastly the appreciation dinner. Keep in mind that the events will commence around the second week of JANUARY so organization is key as there is only 5 weeks left from now for practice.
So here are a few things to start off with which requires assistance:-
1. New sports and old sports
Netball, futsal, badminton and basketball are the confirmed sports.
Three more events suggested are:-
• Track and Field
• Ultimate Frisbee
We REALLY need your responses for the three tentative sports- we will set up a voting system which will start Monday, 3rd until Sunday, 9th December 2012. Scores will be tallied up and the committee will decide which sport(s) to bring in.
Other than badminton, all the sports will have a limit of two teams from each state. Collectively, all the Sydney-siders (including seniors, juniors, superjuniors, super super juniors (ITB batch), alumnis) will make up a large group so it is up those who are interested to get together for practice.
2. The BASS shirt competition
In order to get into the spirit of the summer games, we decided to hold a jersey designing competition within the BASS society. The design must integrate the existing BASS logo and whatever concept which is appropriate. The design will be used for both men and women jerseys.
The competition will be held for a week starting from Monday, 3rd until Sunday, 9th December 2012. Sketch submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no prizes for this, recognition and having bragging rights in having the Sydney-siders wearing your concept should suffice right? :)
(P.S: There will be the option of having long sleeves or short sleeves made available.)
3. The focal points
Since some will be working, going overseas, etc, it will be difficult to get in touch with everyone. Thus we have assigned focal points for each sport so the committee can easily get updates from these people. Please tell us in advance if you are unavailable for these positions.
Senior Junior Superjunior
Netball Ain Bakar Peejah Azimah
Futsal Bukhari Nashakim
Badminton Anas Hafiz
Basketball Kwang, Chris
Any new information concerning with the BruONZ games will be posted on the BASS facebook, BruONZ or bassbox.blogspot so always be aware of updates. In addition to that, please do get in touch with the super, super juniors (ITB batch) and do invite them to play as future Sydney siders and make them feel welcomed.
4. The appreciation dinner performance
The concept will be Brunei + State Ethnic Performance. State referring to Sydney or Australia as a whole. The performance must be a fusion between Brunei and the place you study so it can be a short sketch, a pre-recorded video, dance, singing, etc – so long as it is APPROPRIATE and good clean fun.
The performance should be around 6 minutes long. I would like to have someone in-charge who has enough creative energy and organization skills to make this happen. But of course it is a team effort and the committee is excited to hear the suggestions you guys can come up with.
We know this is a lot to be digested and you guys have other priorities too. However, we all have the obligation to show the other states what we can do. We can win this years games and we can make this summer ours (insyAllah). So what are we waiting for??? ☺
