Futsal postponed

Hey folks, as most of you know, BSSBne was planning to host the annual BSS Futsal Invitational Tournament on Saturday, March 27th, with contenders from Malaysia, Singapore and our own Bruneians.

Although the main elements such as the rules and location have long been confirmed, the committee has decided it would be best to postpone the Tournament to a later date, perhaps soon after the semester break, due to the somewhat rushed nature causing problems with registration and minor details.

By rescheduling, the committee hopes to give teams more time to train for the matches, increase the chances of more teams from other countries like Indonesia to also compete, give supporters a chance to perfect their cheer leading skills (ha.ha.ha.) and we ourselves will be fine-tuning the event and execution to make for a great Tournament.

Apologies for any inconveniences caused,

QUT Harmony Day

Harmony Day is about celebrating Australia's multicultural heritage and the importance of mutual respect. On the 18th March 2010, from 11 to 2 pm, BSS will represent Brunei in the QUT harmony day market, held at the Kelvin Grove campus. Other participating nations include Malaysia, Norway and China.

The Bruneian stall will feature typical bruneian cuisine such as nasi katok (biasa AND pedas :p), begedil, cucur udang and pisang, etc. There will also be information on BSS memberships, BSS futsal tournament registration, as well as other upcoming events.

Be there at 11 to avoid any disappointments!

National Day BBQ

On the 20th March 2010, we will be having a barbecue commemorating the 26th Brunei National Day at the Southbank Parklands, 2-5pm. It will cost $7/person ($10 for 2 persons, if you come together), and this will entitle you to eat-all-you-can and an automatic membership with BSS (do contact us for more information on memberships).

Anyone who attends this gathering will have the chance to organise and take part in weekly social sports such as netball, basketball and football in perparation for the annual uni games.
For those who are football mad, bring your gear along and join the Anak-Anak Brunei football team for a kick-about in Toowong (immediately after the bbq).

Any questions? contact us.
