ROYAL – THOMAIN: 142 YEARS OF TRADITION & FELLOWSHIP
Following the postponement of the 142nd RoyalThomian encounter, scheduled to be played in Hambantota from 6th to 8th May, the OBA reorganised the live broadcast, planned for 7th May, to the theme “142 Years of Tradition & Fellowship” – to celebrate the fellowship and tradition that have been the hallmark of the sporting encounters between the two schools; and ensure that the 142-year tradition remain unbroken.
The re-configured family orientated event included interviews with cricketers of yesteryear from both Royal and S. Thomas’, Kid’s activities, sumptuous dinner & drinks; and live music for dancing and fellowship. A Raffle was conducted in conjunction with the event and included attractive prizes for both adults and kids.
The demand for the event was overwhelming and sold out well in advance. There was a high percentage of Royalists patronising the event which added to the flavour of the theme.
