By: Ruben H. Victoria

Edmonton - 99 years of Philippine Independence Day Anniversary was celebrated "pinoy" style with the annual invitational Independence Day. The tournament hosted by the Filipino Edmonton Basketball Association (FEBA) was part of the Philippine Independence celebration. Edwin Mayuga, President of FEBA, and its board members and volunteers were proud to welcome tournament teams from Winnepeg, Calgary and Red Deer. Edmonton's hometown talents were showcased in the tournament by impressive teams: The Canada Life Basketball Team, Senator Angara's Basketball Team, The Filipino Sports Association Selection Team and Ferdie Mendita's Team. At the culmination of the week end long tournament, all participants were winners: they were able to celebrate the anniversary of the Independence of their country of origin. A big Sports Event in Basketball celebrating the Centennial of Philippine Independence in 1998 is being planned and will be a longer and exciting tournament.
