    Hi I have read your Schedules. I am happy that I can witness some of these activities since I am coming home for vacation..But unfortunately , one thing which I am really interested to join one of these activities is the Badminton Tournament.. I want to join in this but I’ll be reaching Gensan on 3rd Sept only… Is there a chance to play in that tournament? Or is there any chance to move the schedule of this tournament. Just tryin….
