GREENHORNS CHAMPS 

Heart-break kids no more. The Greenhorns beat the Playboys 73-71 in the BBT 2004 finals at the St. John Academy Gym on Sunday (Sept.12, 2004). It’s the Greenhorns' first championship in 14 years. Down by seven with less than four minutes to go, the Greenhorns’ solid team defense enabled them to overtake the Playboys with 51 seconds left. The Playboys had a chance to win or send the game to overtime in the last 14 seconds but their three point try missed and their follow-up shot was blocked. In the game for third place, Candelaria repeated over Gudalupe to bag the 2nd runner up trophy.

JOURNEYS
RONELO F. FABABEIR

I first met Mang Minyong sometime in 1999. It was after hearing the 7 o’clock mass at San Beda church when I spotted him right there, standing on his frail small frame at the front of the church’s gate clad with yellow Ninoy T-shirt and faded maong shorts.

Forefathers
Ish Fabicon

There in the island where the waves rock the beaches of sand and stone, my father was born. There, in his childhood, he skin dived to learn the wisdom of the stonefish and the sea horse.

Last Dance? Binuot Tribe went on to bag the trophy and cash prize of P12,000.00 without a challenge. They presented the now non-existent rice planting practices. Will the Hanrumanan presentation follow suit? 


  BANTON 2003 UPDATE

September 2004
Lyndon F. Fadri, Chairman

For the past few months, everyone must have not heard anything about the Banton 2003 Project. The Yagting Group, the primary Banton 2003 work group in the Internet has been silent for quite a while except for some noises created by the recent elections. The truth is, the Banton 2003 leadership, could do nothing but hold back, assess and re-think the whole project. 

The project was launched with a big bang in 2003. While the project encountered organizational difficulties and a decline in the financial support thereafter, the leadership managed to put up a full schedule during the Holy Week / the Sanrokan Festival - thanks to the Greenhorns who sponsored most of the activities and the few warm bodies whose support for the project was unrelenting. Yet, the turnout was disheartening. No thanks to our “ningas-cogon” attitude. No thanks to the elections – everybody seemed so busy campaigning and with the color-coding phenomenon proving to be insurmountable!
