We may have lost the Royal Challenge Friendship Meet but we made a
lot of new friends in the process, which is why it was called
"Friendship Meet" in the first place.
A big thanks each one of you who trekked over bad roads to make it
for the event. Also thanks to our sponsors who made this event a
- Royal Challenge (McDowell's - United Spirits)
- SAP India
- Kingfisher (UB)
- Mandovi Motors (Maruti)
IIM-C won in Football (5-6), Cricket (we made 85 in 15 and they
made that in 14.2 overs with 5 wickets in hand) and raising
sponsorships. Quiz & attendance was tied. Volley was cancelled
because of poor light.
Overall: IIM-C won.
While we brought in Bodhi Tree from various cities to have a
great musical event after the sports, IIM-C brought in their best
sportsmen from various cities to beat us at the task at hand. Talk
