Domino tournament a popular leisure activity in Seychelles was again included in the island's Festival Kreol 2015 with Cascade District taking first place

Domino tournament a popular leisure activity in Seychelles was again included in the island's Festival Kreol 2015 with Cascade District taking first place (Forimmediaterelease.net) Domino playing is a leisure pastime long associated with islanders, and this is inclusive of Creoles. In the Seychelles, this leisure pastime has long been taken seriously, so much so that domino competitions between teams and districts have often appeared in events.

It was not surprising for this very people-to-people contact leisure activity to again appear this year on the Seychelles Festival Kreol program. Nine districts of the Seychelles registered teams for the competition that took place by the National Arts Council (NAC) Offices in Victoria, the capital of the “World of Creoles.”

“Often people question what activities were included on the Kreol Festival's program, while others question why such an event was again included. We are here to ensure that our people have the choice in events they like and enjoy. This is why we have again this year included a domino competition, and we salute the nine districts for fielding teams," said Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, when he dropped in on the teams as they were actively engrossed in their domino game.

Marietta Labonte of the Culture Department of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture was this year mandated to organize this event that brought together many from the different districts to Victoria to enjoy many hours of fun while maintaining the local culture and keeping the tradition alive.

The winners for this year’s Festival Kreol domino competition was Cascade District. In second place was Baie Lazare District, and in third place the Police Team. “As I congratulate the winners made up of both men and ladies playing side by side, I say that all nine teams registered for this year’s competition are winners, because you have ensured that your district's flag or that of your organization was raised high at this Festival Kreol. Congratulations to you all," said Minister Alain St.Ange.
