Pomp and glory, Solemnity and pride marked the feast day celebration of our Father and Founder St. John Bosco as The Retreat, Yercaud community organized a grand Volleyball Tournament for the youngsters of Yercaud on 29th January 2012.  There were 17 talented volleyball teams participated and displayed their abilities magnificently.  In order to enhance the participation of the teams, they were divided into two pools.  The tournament commenced with a short prayer service in which the assistance of the Almighty Father was invoked through Don Bosco.  Two of the promisingly talented referees namely, Mr. Ernest and Mr. Samydass also were requested to be the official referees.  Some of the teams that were considered to be inexperienced astonished the audience with their gritty volleyball skills.  The team whose goal`s been patience and consistency reached the finals namely The RDS and Manjakuttai.  In a nerve breaking final set The RDS managed to handle the pressure and thus won the match.  The youngsters were very happy as they recognized that their hard work they have put in these days has finally paid off.  This tournament happened to be a special one since the Salesians and youngsters were fortunate to receive the blessings from the lover of youth, who visited them earlier.  This long awaited and annual volleyball tournament was conducted under the leadership of Fr. Amos, the director of the oratories.
