All those gathered were divided into four groups which were named after the theme on which they were grouped, namely; Moodubelle, The Church, Old testament and the new testament. The groups played an assortment of fun-filled games throughout the day. Games like ‘Untangling the human chain’ and ‘Piggyback blind race’ were very exiting. Groups were allocated points and prizes were distributed at the end of the day. In between the games barbequed chicken was served by Paul Lobo. At 2.00P.M a sumptuous Mangalorean lunch was served. Every platter was filled with traditional and authentic Mangalorean Cuisine. The appetizing dishes included ‘Channa Sukkha’, Chicken sukka masala, ‘Mota rice, pickle, and dal.

The group events of the day were aptly organized by Lawrence Alva, while games for children were conducted by Philomena Mendoca. During breaks John Lobo and his team entertained people with Konkani, Hindi and English songs while Eddu’s group kept the momentum going with jokes and plays. The entire event was whole heartedly supported by managing committee.
