The Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee (PNGOC) is now inviting organisations from both the public and private sector to register and field Teams for the annual Prime Minister’s (PM’s) Golf Challenge 2021.
With the start of registrations early this month, PNGOC Secretary General Auvita Rapilla re-iterated this call with reminders on the closing dates for both chapters of the challenge in Lae, and Port Moresby,
Mrs Rapilla said, “With the current challenges due to the coronavirus, we are hoping that we will get a good number of teams to participate similar to last year’s turnout in both Lae and here in Port Moresby.
“Under PNGOC’s new strategic term 2021 to 2024, we have 4 Games on the calendar for Team PNG, which includes the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games in the United Kingdom and the 2022 Saipan Mini South Pacific Games, in the Northern Marianas, 2023 Pacific Games in Honiara, Solomon Islands and 2024 Paris Olympic Games in France. A mammoth task indeed for PNGOC”.
“With registrations now opened, we welcome all organisations to take part and support our national Team”, she said.
Chairman of Fundraising Committee Michael Henao acknowledged the continued patronage of our current annual PM’s Golf pool of sponsors The National, Ela Motors, Theodist Ltd, Media Partners, Brian Bell Group and SP Brewery.
“We grateful for your myriad contributions and immense support over the years, including invaluable support during and through the pandemic. The on-going support from Team PNG’s current partners is a source of renewed strength in the organisation’s capacity as a valuable agent for positive change for Papua New Guineans”.
“As partners of the PNG Olympic Committee, you are important stakeholders that provide significant support to achieve our goals and objectives, you all play an important part in nation building and uniting our country”.
Registrations will close on October 01st for Lae while registration for the Port Moresby will close on October 26th, with competitions dates scheduled for October 3rd for Lae and October 22nd for Port Moresby respectively.
