The Bhutanese community came together Saturday for a day of sports, spoon races and musical chairs.

The third Bhutanese Sports Day was organized by the Bhutanese Community Resource Center at the Valley Ridge Sports Complex in SeaTac, attended by about 200 Bhutanese and their well-wishers.

“Different kinds of sports activities were included to involve people of all age groups,” said Biren Khadga, the event’s manager.

Seniors competed for prizes in games such as blindfolds and musical chairs. The children participated in events such as mathematics and chocolate races.

Meanwhile, men and women took part the inter-city soccer tournament. Tukwila Team A beat out four other men’s teams from around the state to win first place. First place in the women’s competition was won by a Burien team.

Competition lasted from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The sports day was jointly funded by Seattle Neighbor to Neighbor and Seattle People’s Fund.
