Mae Rim District Chief Officer Puchong Phokoodsai, superintendent of Mae Rim District Police Station, organized an anti-drug sports day competition for 2,000 local administration organization’s officers, village headmen, and private company’s staff.

The drug problem is a serious threat to the nation, and sport is one of the best activities to prevent the return of drug abuse to the local communities, said Puchong.

The sports day included football and volleyball and the always popular cheerleaders.

This anti drug sports day was the first activity that Mae Rim district has organized for the general public and different organizations to show their unity and strengthen relationships, said the district chief officer.

700 Year Anniversary Stadium to receive a face-lift and refurbishing

Staff reporters

10 million baht is to be spent on the 700 Year Anniversary stadium to replace damaged equipment and rest room repairs and painting.

The stimulus for this appears to have been a visit by the PM’s sister Yaowapa Wongsawas, who is also the deputy leader of the Thai Rak Thai party, in concert with two Chiang Mai members of parliament, Pakorn Buranuprakorn and Boonsong Teriyaphirom.

The director of the Sport Authority of Thailand, Northern Office, Rujira Premmanont, will thoroughly check the condition of the restrooms and assess other equipment for repair and improvement.

Rujira estimates that the improvements, which will include painting, will cost less than 10 million baht. The improvements will start in early January 2005.
