To tell you a little bit about 2012 and all the activities organized by the sports club and in the colony.
One of our initiatives towards sports this year was that we extended our support to Sporting Option First Division Team in the MDFA (Mumbai District Football Association) which promotes football in Mahim and has every possible talented footballer in Mahim playing for it. If you are a fan of the sport, you can follow and encourage them on FB.
Our first event organized in the year was KICKOFF 2012, our annual rink football tournament. The tournament was held over 2 weekends, from the 19th and 20th of May to the 26th and 27th of May 2012. 62 teams participated from all over Mumbai. This was one of the biggest events organized by us this year which even had a crazy closing ceremony.
In the month of September we had a blog contest to encourage the residents of Marinagar to express themselves on their thoughts about the colony. We did not get a good response but nevertheless it was a learning experience.
On the 6th of Oct we organized ‘Masti N More’ in collaboration with the Focolare Movement. It would have been an event of live music, dance performance, stand up etc if it hadn’t rained . There was this amazing food bazaar though which got completely sold out. People came and patronized the stalls inspite of the rainy weather. We thank all those you came out that evening to support us.
In the month of Oct when every weekend seemed to be cricket Sunday we organized a BBQ on the grounds aka ‘Sunday Café’. There were a few MSCites and a few patrons and it was a good Sunday afternoon to chill with some friends with music, sport, drinks and snacks.
The Last event for the year was the ‘Fatima Christmas Bash’. The annual Fatima bldg Christmas party was organized in collaboration with the Fatima Building Tenants and us. The event was such a hit that the follow up New Year party was also organized. Although the New Year party was solely organized by the tenants of Fatima Building. That was definitely a party to remember.
These were all the events organized by only the MSC, but there were many more events held in the colony. Organized by The new managing committee of the Marinagar Association, Youth of Rosa Mystica and Sporting Options.
The Marinagar Association had telegames for all ages in the month of August, followed by one of the best ‘Christmas Wonderland’ (a Christmas event with xmas bazaar, caroling, Christmas tree etc) the colony has ever seen. And finally a beautiful Karaoke Nite on the feast of the epiphany.
Sporting option too had an amazing Aerobics session for the kiddies this year in the month of November followed by ’Run for Fun’ their first marathon run in Mahim.
So a lot has been happening in the colony and if you have not heard about any of this the entire year then maybe our Marketing Team is not doing a good job. These events are organized only so we know who are neighbors are and to have a good time together. So if you have been waiting for a personalized invite then here it is. We would really like your presence for all of the events held in the colony and we hope to get to know you better as the days go by. See you soon at the next event in the colony.
