The Northern Chow Games gets underway at Subrail Park, Labasa, tomorrow.

For the first time an electronic timer and photo finish equipment will be used in the two-day meet.

Fiji Primary Schools Athletics Association (Northern) president Eliki Mae yesterday confirmed that the 2016 Northern Chow Games opening will be done by the Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea.

“There will be 12 participating zones in this year’s competition,” Mae said.

He pointed out the participating teams are from the three provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata (C.B.M) in the Northern division.

Mae said the Buca Bay Zone from Cakaudrove dropped out last week.

“We are all very excited to have this two-day sporting event.

“This is where we bring together students from various schools in Vanua Levu to allow them to showcase their skills and talents.

“Many participants will be travelling to Labasa today to camp as the programme starts at 8:30am on Tuesday.

“We would like to advise teachers and parents to ensure the safety of their children while they are travelling, camping and taking part in the Chow Games,” he added.

“We wish everyone all the best and we hope that good weather will be on our side so that students can perform to the best and we get to see their real talent on the field.”

Mae had earlier said having the competition in Labasa compared to the annual trips made to Suva was far less expensive.

“Now, the teams will only have to travel to Suva once every three years and this is a great opportunity for the participants to achieve something.”

The meet is good for the students as they get to socialise with their counterparts from other schools.”

Mae said he is confident that they were going to have a good tournament and wishes all participants well.
