Palaro Updates from SCOOP

By Eddie Alinea

26 Mar 2010

Everything has been set in place for Tarlac province’s hosting of the 2009 Palarong Pambansa slated April 11-17 in the tiny town of San Jose. Tarlac’s youthful chief executive, Gov. Vic Yap, yesterday said all the 15 venues where the 17 sports in the secondary level and 15 in the elementary class will be disputed have all been completed with still 16 days left before competitions begin.

“All the requirements have been put in place, especially the games venues and what I can say is that we the people of Tarlac are ready to hold the games, which the province will be hosting for the first time in the 53-year-history of the Palaro,” Yap said during yesterday’s SCOOP Sa Kamayan weekly session at the Kamayan Restaurant-Padre Faura.

The main hub of competitions, according to Gov. Yap during the weekly public service forum sponsored by ACCEL, is the newly-built Tarlac Recreational Park located at the Barangay San Juan de Valdez in San Jose, a sixth class municipality 11 kilometers east of the provincial capital Tarlac City.
The Palaro hosting is a dream comes true as far as his late father, former Gov. Jose “Apeng” Yap, was concerned.
“It’s a pity, hindi na niya inabot and Palaro na matagal na niyang pinangarap na maisagawa sa aming probinsya, but still I believe he’s happy where he is now because his dream has finally been fulfilled,” he said rather emotionally.
The elder Yap had joined his Creator early this month.
Assistant Secretary Emilio Abelita II of the organizing Department of Education, who was with Yap along with Task Force on Schools Sports consultant Len Toledo, announced that all the regional eliminations in the country’s 17 regions, led by perennial overall champion National Capital Region, have also been cone with.
Toledo, for his part, said that no games will be played from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. to avoid athletes being exposed to late morning and early afternoon heat brought abaout by El Nino.
Sufficient water supply and additional electric fans will be provided each billeting quarters for the same purpose, according to Yap.

Yap said he expects around 15,000 visitors, counting the some 10,000 athletes, coaches and delegation officials, to visit the province during the duration of the Palaro.
“One of the main reasons for our bid to host the Palaro is, besides doing our share in the government’s sports development program, is to promote the province of Tarlac as a sports and tourisms destination,” Yap told members of the Sports Organization of the Philippines during the forum.

Except for archery and arnis, which will only be played in the high school division, sports to be disputed in both levels are athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, boxing, chess, football, gymnastics (artistic and rhythmic), sepak takraw, softball, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis and volleyball.

Besides the Tarlac Recreational Park, other playing venues are the Tarlac Plazuela in Tarlac City, the Victoria covered court in Victoria town, Sunrise Subdivision, Lapuz Coliseum, Bayanihan Institute, Provincial Capitol gym, Hacienda Luisita, Paniqui Court, San Sebastian Court, Diwa ng Tarlac Park, Nolcom Park, Don Bosco, San Isidro Covered Court, CLDH Covered Court, San Rafael Covered Court and the Ecumenical Christian College.
