Unfortunately the football match and the relay could not be held as most of the locals were busy as Saturday was the Payment day and the outstation old boys were too tired to play, except for CC Thimaiah and Rahul Tadimal. So we left the ground for a scrumptious Tea and Snacks.
We regrouped at 6:30 pm for registration. The total head count was 80 Pax and it included 46 old boys from Coorg and other places. The Meeting started off well With the President Mr. Ashok Subbhia welcoming all the old boys to the Coorg Connect. The President of OBA Bangalore Mr. Shashi Kiran Lewis was the Guest of Honour. He was called upon to give a speech and he also cut the OBA cake. A new committee was selected comprising of
PRESIDENT: C.C. Thimaiah
VP: Shyam Appanna
Secretary: Ajit Bopanna
Treasurer: Deep Appaiah
It was also declared that the next event was a golf tournament which will be held at Mercara Downs Golf Club on Jan 16, 2016. All old boys of SJBHS are invited to participate or attend the event. The meeting ended with the school song and we regrouped for the photograph. After the photograph the band took over, the beverages began to flow and post beverages the nicknames and the naughty events at SJBHS were remembered. The scrumptious feast which obviously included the famous Coorg Pandhi curry, was relished by one and all. In all it was a very well organised event. All the guests, young and old had a wonderful time, with the place beautifully lit up in the school colours of blue and white. The party finally came to an end at 1:00 am.
