Rain can’t stop Obregón sports day!

December 7, 2007

A ‘Sports Day’ organized by Ciudad Obregón staff originally for 24 November got rained out, but the re-scheduled 26 November event involved 150 people and was a huge success! Starting at 2 pm, there was a rapid, round-robin volleyball tournament in which the Agronomía team came out on top, over three other worthy competitors (Científicos, Nutrientes, and Combinados). In the play-offs for baseball, an extremely popular sport in northern Mexico, the Yaquis team dominated its opponent, winning 6-0. In a novelty event, station staff members Colin Warner and Jesús Macías tried to see who could ride longest and best on a mechanical bull; Colin had the best time, and Jesús was awarded special recognition for his four brave attempts to mount. The dinner following the competitions brought together in celebratory mode staff of all levels and programs. I would like to congratulate and thank all participants, and especially the organizers, without whose support the event would not have been so enjoyable or exciting.
