The Basketball Unified Sports Group, headed by Bing Soyao, will celebrate its 8th year with the installation of its new officers, and the club’s Christmas Party in a 3-in-1 affair tonight, starting 6:30 p.m. at the Garden Venue Center, Uptown Arcade, Libertad Extension, Bacolod City.
BUS G, also known in the local basketball scene as the Huskies, was established in 2004 by three groups of basketball enthusiasts, a press release from the group said.
The Huskies now has 60 members with ages ranging from 35 to 69 years old with Soyao being the oldest. BACIWA's Jonathan Dicen and Homesite's Tatang Serran, are the two other pillars of the group.
With injuries, old age, work assignment, and other personal problems hounding the Huskies, its membership took a dip in its early years but bounced back with veteran players joining the club in the last four years, the press release said.
Made popular by Soyao in organizing age-group competitions backed by Panasonic, Sharp, Condura and other appliance manufacturers, BUS G continues to indulge in supporting other leagues aside from joining local tournaments.
It also makes trips for fellowship games against teams from Dumaguete, Iloilo, Bohol and Cebu when time allows.
The club will hold its invitational and inter-color tournament again starting January 2013.*
