Congrats to the winners and runners-up of both Throwball and Volleyball teams and the individual award achievers. The tournament was very well organised from start to the end. The most amazing fact is the energy drinks they supplied free of cost to the players/spectators till the end, which none of the other organizers did in the past. This event was a successful in all respect. Hats-off to all members of Belle-vision! We look forward to the next tournament.

Congratulations to all the office bearers and members of Bellevision-UAE for organising professionally such a wonderful tournament with significant participation from various teams. The report, pictures and video manifest the grandeur of the mega event.

Indeed a historic event in the field of sports and games. The organizers have made it meticulous and all technical aspects are found to be thoroughly followed. Congratulations to the organizers, participants and winners in the competitions. Better luck to the trailers who can still make it with better efforts. Efforts of Mr Elias and others are successful and Sigfred has made it marvelous by his skills in depicting on the Web. Keep it up.
Victor Castelino, Boliye/Dubai Sun, November-13-2011, 5:06
It is heartening to note that BV is growing from strength to strength and their organising capabilities are exemplary all because of the sacrifices of all concerned. It is also heart warming to see tuluvas and konkans, hindus, muslims and christians of the region joining together to show that we are as united as anyone else and that any one trying to break this bond will be defeated. Hope that no one takes exeptions for honouring some one with flowers, shawl, plaque etc. because it is our way of saying "Thank You" for a job well done. By the way, I wish I was there to support you guys but could not. Keep up the good work. All the best.
Alphonse Mendonsa, Pangla/Abu Dhabi Sun, November-13-2011, 3:48
