The Count-down begins – 10 days to go!!

Dear SAYSOCCers,

Yes, we have exactly 10 days more to go for SAYSOCC to happen!! The organising team is all set, and things are well oiled and rolling πŸ˜€ There will be press conference on the 19th of October with representatives from Sponsoring organisations and the youth organisations.

So the ones who haven’t packed yet, Do so ASAP!!! You are coming to the pearl of the Indian Ocean, its quite
sunny ‘n cheerful (though due to Climate Change, we are having irregular rain patterns :/ ) and we are gonna get lots of good work done.

Please confirm all your flight details to the organising team before 19th Tuesday, if not you could be stranded in the Airport which is not very pleasant since most of the flights touch-down at around 2am! πŸ˜›

Today’s meeting concluded with the finalisation of all delegated tasks…The awesome people in the organising team Shanika, Surendrinie, Hasini, De Alwis, Sudarsha, Vositha and me (:P), Vathees, Shehan and all are the bestest, as this was put together due to the great and pure commitment shown by all. Kudos to all of you! πŸ™‚

So I say, South Asians, let’s SHINE πŸ™‚

Latest Update on SAYSoCC! Here it comes!

Hi to All!!

I know that we have been a little silent of late, but nopes, we are not inactive!
We are very much active! Just that we wanted to clarify matters and be assured of the process before we informed you about it.

We have a sponsor who is willing to take up the accommodation expenses! And this is great news for all of us, from where we were, a great leap!

Not so Good News!
As the venues of the sponsors are booked for the dates we initially wanted we will have to change the dates of the summit. Hence we are pushing SAYSoCC a few days back, but just a few days!
We will send out the new confirmed dates within the next few days, once the decision is finalised.

More updates coming soon!! Keep logged in πŸ™‚
