For those who love the summer, an annual pilgrimage to the mecca of sand and sun in the Philippines is part of one's yearly ritual. Boracay is the place to see and be seen during the months of heat as celebrities, socialites, personalities, and everyone else flock to the island with the whitest of sands in the world.
The Solar Sports crew joined the pilgrimage as it held its Matchplay event to celebrate this year's biggest sporting events, the Olympic Games, the Eurocup Championships and of course, Manny Pacquiao's fights. We flew in the sales and marketing group along with some sponsors last weekend to kick off the exciting rest of the year for the #1 sports network. There was volleyball and soccer with a little bit of ultimate frisbee and flag football along with a seemingly unlimited supply of food and drinks throughout the whole weekend.
Tim Tayag was the host entertainer by day and at night, Conrad Alampay did some street magic and even Manolet Dario mixed some tunes at the Beachcomber Bar in station 1 of the famous beach. Many thanks to the Solar crew who organized the event and despite a heavy downpour Saturday night, the attendance was still good and the party continued on. There was even fireworks at the stroke of midnight that got everyone their second wind for the rest of the evening/morning.
