One of the major sponsors of the tournament was San Miguel Beer. All the teams were made to wear the shirts they gave out at the registration
San Miguel Beer - Walang Katulad talaga! Thank you also to Legenda and ANC for sponsoring this event!
Look to the left side of this picture and you will see two empty cans of San Miguel Beer. The tremendous heat made all of us so thirsty and since San Miguel was a major sponsor, they gave all the teams one whole case of San Miguel Beer right before the games started. Wayy to go San Miguel!!!

No wayyy..it was worst than swallowing a whole piece of polvoron but then again..polvoron is real food and sand hardly is.
