PBF Secretary / Treasurer, Jubilee Kuartei also spoke with the volunteers and stressed how important they were in making the basketball tournament a resounding success.  She mentioned that starting to be involved in such a prestigious competition at such a young age would help them when it became their time to participate in such events. 


The volunteers were made up of a team of boys that took care of the gym, including cleaning, floor wiping and generally ensuring that the gym was always at its best for the games and spectators.  The boys were referred to as the “gym rats” through the tournament.  The team of young women who took care of the various systems used through the competition, including all the computer work, were referred to as “The Gophers”. 


All enjoyed the many pizzas that were ordered.


Basketball Palau is indeed fortunate to have so many willing helpers and we say Ke Kmal mesulang to all.
