People really took to the day and what was really awesome for the older alumni to was the enthusiastic participation of the younger new members. Munyembate said generally when newer matriculants leave it usually takes them close to five years to come back but the day saw the accompaniment of 2023 matriculants which was terrific for the association.

This sporting event has taken place for the past three years and each year it seems to grow bigger and better.
