More than one hundred under 13 kids from around the island will be participating in an atmosphere of keen but friendly rivalry for the first time in Laborie which has been a hot bed for rugby talent and activity in recent times. Teams are drawn from schools and communities such as Laborie Boys School, Laborie Girls School, Micoud, Marchand Combined School (boys and girls), La Guerre, Boguis Combined, Babonneau Primary School, Vide Boutielle Primary School and Balata Primary.
Several side attractions are planned for the day such as such as stilt walkers, steel band, DJ Lovely and her music system and bouncing castle. A short opening ceremony is also planned for the day with march of pass players and officials, short presentations by representatives from the SLRFU, Rotaract, Laborie Revitalisation Committee and the Parliamentary Representative of Laborie, Mr Alva Baptiste. Members of the under 13 male and female teams that recently returned from the UK will be introduced individually to their peers, supporters etc.
The organisers would like to thank in advance, the Laborie Credit Union, Mr Earl Gajadhar for arranging transportation for players and officials, Windward and Leeward Brewery
