MAA Pesta Sukan Ke-4, Hatyai, Thailand | 9 September 2006
This year's Pesta Sukan MAA may be the fourth that was held in the holiday resort of Hatyai in Thailand but the atmosphere was so different from previous meets. From the moment the convoy of 21 chartered buses carrying the participants crossed into the Thai border on Friday 8th September 2006 morning till their return on Sunday morning, there was a feeling of a very special VIP welcome. The Mayor of Hatyai, Mr. Prai Pattano, his deputy and top officials welcomed the contingent at the border checkpoint and ensured everything went on smoothly. All the way from Bangkok came Ms Sommas Siriwong who, as the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Director of Advertising & Public Relations Strategies Division, together with her colleagues which included Mr. Suthep Keasang, Director, TAT Southern Office Region 1 and Mr. Panu Waramit, Assistant Director, TAT Southern Office Region 1, made sure the Pesta Sukan MAA participants were well treated, comfortable and had a great time. The gracious hosts also gave a welcome dinner to the MAA Management Council and Organising Committee.

Even the weather was understanding. The drizzle on Friday stopped to allow a full Saturday of sports meet in warm sunshine throughout the day.

At the end of the nine gruelling events held simultaneously, UMW Toyota Motor powered through to win seven games with a runner-up in one to retain the coveted Pesta Sukan MAA Challenge Trophy for the fourth consecutive time. They emerged the champions among the 13 participating teams. For those teams who made last minute withdrawals, they missed a great outing in Hatyai that was said to be the best so far.
