27th IRRI-UPLB Dual Meet Held

IRRI hosted the 27th IRRI-UPLB Dual Meet which was held on May 31 – June 1, 2013 at the UPLB Copeland Gym. Fiona Farrell, Director of Human Resource Services (DHRS) and Fernando Sanchez Jr., Vice Chancellor for Planning & Development of the University of the Philippines - Los Baños (UPLB) led the opening ceremony of this year’s dual meet. The theme “Palaro sa Pistahan” (or Feast Games) was inspired by the celebration of the Philippines’ National Year of Rice – where this country is known for celebrating many different festivals as part of its rich and vibrant culture.

IRRI seized the championship this year by winning in these events: swimming (women), bowling (women), softball (men & women), basketball (men), soccer (men), volleyball (women), badminton (women), dama, tug of war (men), plank walk (men & women), load carrying/pole bending, and the cheer dance competition.

HRS Workplace Relations & Advisory Services team would like to thank all those who have helped in making the event successful.
