Albay 70 percent ready for Palarong Pambansa 2016
Roderick Mendoza, provincial sports coordinator, said all the facilities needed, including the oval, are nearing completion.
Mendoza said they have tripled their efforts on a 24/7 scheme to finish the games facilities on the deadline set by National Sports Committee for the sports competition, which is March 10.
He estimated that their office will finish all construction works on the first week of February.
The Albay sports official said all involved individuals, especially local officials of the three cities and 15 towns in the province and national government agencies and the private sector, have been throwing their full support for the success of the big national event.
He said the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation will be the site of basketball games while the hangar of the Tactical Operations Group 5 of the Philippine Air Force will be the venue for the badminton.
Mendoza said officials of the National Committee of the Palaro are scheduled to come to the province to assess the preparation it has done to host the national games. (PNA)
