    Congratulations to all the winners and runners up teams in all events. Special thanks to Konkan Bells for organising such a nice sports day. Kind request to all the refrees to have a fare decision to all the teams. Please do not take each others revenge in the matches as everyone is struggling hard to compete and win. False judgement causes a lot. It is understood if minor mistakes are ignored from both the teams but when it is a clear foul, please call it as "FOUL" and do not ignore just because there is your favourable team playing in.Thanks.

    Yes the refree in court no. 1 was very partial , secially to 1 of his team.
    He gave many decesions favoring to that particular team, specially the match between KCO & Mogaveers.
    In short there should be a clean game played with correct decessions and no paritiallty.

    AWESUM n well plaaned event.
    hopin for even more sports to be inculded , hopefully rinkfootball 5 aside or 3. :)
    n throwball team is pacific stars and not Pacific Pearls. :P
    only 1 negative point was about 1 refree in court no1, who is not fit to b a refree , as if u ask him for decesion, his answer would be "I CANT SEE THAT FROM HERE" , he aint a fair umpire.
    he needs to learn from other umpires such as denzil or others present der.
