Rain can鈥檛 stop Obreg贸n sports day!

A ‘Sports Day’ organized by Ciudad Obreg贸n 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 Agronom铆a team came out on top, over three other worthy competitors (Cient铆ficos, 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 Jes煤s Mac铆as tried to see who could ride longest and best on a mechanical bull; Colin had the best time, and Jes煤s 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.
