Even though we saw a burning City last night we managed to give our competition a jump start.
The Karachi Rounds scheduled for the 20th September, began with a day’s delay. Our first pool for Sept 21, 2010 was for the age group 9-11. The little kids though tensed were also extremely excited about the event finally giving them a chance to compete with so many other schools on a single platform.
The first two pools of 9-11 and 12 -14 age groups were a breeze. With no sudden death being played amongst teams, no dramatic action, we sailed through the competition in no time.
In the afternoon sessions, we encountered brief elimination rounds, where none of the teams could get a correctly spelled word. Strange though, I always thought the competition would run the other:)
Well, we hope to have all schools present with us tomorrow and the days to come, and also pray and wish the city conditions remain normal.
