EMC holds Pre-Christmas Sports Fest

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City – The Uniformed Personnel and Civilian Employees of Eastern Mindanao Command (EMC) pause their duties for a while to have a little fun under the sun, as they opened the Command’s Pre-Christmas Sports fest yesterday, November 29, 2017, at the Camp Panacan Grounds, Davao City.

The Sports fest was opened through a ceremony graced by Lt. General Benjamin R. Madrigal, Jr. the Commander of Eastern Mindanao Command.

Prior to the opening, the participants, grouped into 4 teams, parade their colors and performed their cheers and yells. An oath-taking and ceremonial torch lighting then followed to declare the sports competition’s opening.

Lt. Gen. Madrigal said in his speech that activities like the said sports fest are the “light moments” of the EMC personnel who work hard in their respective offices. The Commander also shared a phrase where he reflected that in friendly competitions, they will develop other skills like combat skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and ‘honor of victor.’

“Those who will lose should think that this is not the end, but rather a lesson to strive hard next time around,” Lt. Gen. Madrigal added.

The teams afterward competed in physical activities like tug-of-war, sack race, tire rolling, basketball, and others.
