Here again the President of B.W.H.A. would like to know more about the donor of this cup, which was pulled out of storage polished and insured.
It was found to be of considerable value and they would like to pay a tribute to the donor in their next tournament in January 2004.
All we know that Tommy Emar was a prominent businessman whose father the late M.R. De Souza was a pioneer merchant that started the business in Zanzibar in the 1890's moved to Mombasa in the early 1900 and eventually opened a shop in Nairobi. They hail from Saligao in Goa.
Could anyone of our readers please give us any information about these prominent business man and we would like to hear from Tommy's son, Cedric De Souza in Nairobi and daughter Blandina Auranjo in England.
Again please forward all communication to:-
In conclusion it would be great if the G.O.A. Toronto who currently organise and run the Norbert Menezes Gold Cup for men invite teams from Overseas and also request the B.W.H.A. to compete in the women's section of this tournament. The G.O.A. are very fortunate to have men of great organising skill such as Felix D'Mello and Charlie De Souza together with a number of youngsters all willing to work very hard. They will certainly receive support from sponsers, advertisers, friends and well wishers for financial help and moral support.
