Faces in the Crowd (Part 1) – Before the Paddlers of the 2nd Cobra – PDBF Went to War

I still don’t feel like writing yet. After the dizzying schedule of last week, I believe I have earned the right to relax, sip my wine ever so leisurely, and just bask under the shade of the palm trees. Surely, the events of 28-29 Apr have been very memorable. And the 2nd Cobra-PDBF Dragon Boat extravaganza has gifted us with lots of stories to tell, and lots of lessons to learn. Let me work on that on some later date. Today, let me just salute some of the men and women who joined us, and helped make the event an affair to remember.

The 2nd Cobra – PDBF International Club Crew Challenge was produced by the Provincial Government of Bohol, the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation, and Tapok Tapok Bol-anon; with Cobra, Philex, Smart Communications and Cetaphil. Co-producing the event were Lj Lumayag of K & N Productions, Bohol Paddlers Association, and the municipalities of Dauis and Maribojoc, Rotary Tagbilaran, JCI Bohol Kisses and JCI Chocolate Hills.

The major sponsors were: Bluewater Panglao, Bellevue Hotel, First Consolidated Bank, TIEZA, Zoocolate Thrills, and the Department of Tourism (DOT). Other sponsors include: Dep Comm Danny Lim, Oishi, 2Go, Adnama Mining, Hyundai, Danao Adventure Park, Starlite, Eskaya, Ramasola Studios, Truckworld, Lite Shipping, Island Prints and Cong Rene Relampagos.

The media partners include: the Manila Bulletin, Sports Digest, Philippine Star, Business Mirror, TV5, Solar Sports, Sports Unlimited, BCCTV, Bohol Chronicle, DYRD, Xync Magazine and Istorya.net.

The ‘Battle of Champions’ at the 2nd Cobra-PDBF International Club Crew Challenge in Dauis, Bohol last April 26-30, truly a once-in-a-lifetime treat!
