SOBA Agra Golf Tournament
16 March 2016
Scindians from all across the country started converging upon the city of love from the morning of 5th March. The rain clouds gave a small scare in the evening, but could not dampen the schoolboy spirit. After spending an anxious hour indoors, everyone settled down for a gala evening with live music on the lawns of the Agra Golf Course. A few were also seen dancing to the lovely, lively tunes.
The evening was attended by Dr. Madhav Deo Saraswat, Sri GS Bakshi, & Sri Naman Saraswat from the School. The Principal addressed all old boys & their families present.
The organising team presented a beautifully framed memento of the School song to all present, prompting everyone to join in singing the same with full gusto.
Scindian golfers assembled at the Agra Golf Course again the next morning, and teed off at 7.30 am in the august presense of the Commissioner of Agra, Sri Pradeep Bhatnagar, a keen golfer himself. Breakfast was served with some local delicacies like Bhedai Aloo Subzi & jalebi. Having refuelled, the golfers returned to the job at hand, while many amongst the visiting Scindians utilised the spare time to source the famous pethas, daal moth & shoes in the bye-lanes of the city.
Soon it was time for the results.
The names of these were announced by Scn. Sanjay Shrivastava, Coordinator & Scn. Manish Bansal, Chapter President.
