by Ben Moses Ebreo
Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (February 2) -- This province will host this year's 5-day regional sports competition dubbed Cagayan Valley Regional Athletic Association(CAVRAA) meet at the Dumlao Stadium here from February 5 to 12.
The sports meet will be participated by the provinces of Cagayan Valley region such as Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Batanes and Nueva Vizcaya including its three cities such as Santiago, Cauayan and Tuguegarao.
"This will be a big event since technical officials alone will be numbering to more than 500 and this excludes the athletes of delegations," said Schools Division Superintendent Alma Dolores Bodino of the Department of Education(DepEd) here.
During the opening program, a parade of all delegations with their athletic uniforms and muses will be done around the town of Bayombong, the capital town of Nueva Vizcaya.
Former Senate President Manuel Villar is expected to grace the CAVRAA 2010 meet opening program.
Bodino said all preparations are already set to accommodate and secure the participants who will be flocking to the province during the duration of the athletic meet.
"We have already coordinated and made arrangements with our local police regarding the security of the participants and the whole event with the help of village guards," Bodino said in a statement.
This year's regional sports meet will open up the opportunity among challengers in beating the province of Isabela, presently a two-time champion in previous CAVRAA meets.
Nueva Vizcaya in 1987 also emerged as CAVRAA champion, besting other provinces in Cagayan Valley region.
The 2010 CAVRAA meet is jointly sponsored by the provincial government of Nueva Vizcaya, municipal government of Alfonso Castaneda and the DepEd. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
