Maharlikan Class Call Dated August 16, 2003

Class President: Ariel I. Briones

Class Secretary: Jesse A. Alvarez
Telefax: 812 2935

The members of PMA Maharlika Class of 1984 wish to extend their condolences to the family of a fellow Maharlikan, the late Sen. Rene “Companero” Cayetano, who was laid to rest at Memorial Gardens, Pateros, Metro Manila on 29 June 2003, 5pm. The following members of the class joined his family to his final resting place: Ariel B., Rey M., Pat M., Jess DC, Gerry A., Derick R., Jess A., Melanie B. and Gaye M. Companero Rene, rest in peace for you are now forever in the arms of the Almighty God. Goodbye!

In preparation for Homecoming 2004, we will do the following projects for this year: Shoot-fest to be undertaken by Mart Pinto and his gang; and Golf Tournament under the care of Army bugs. We do not need to strain ourselves so much to raise more funds for next year’s activity wherein we are one of the host classes. Half a million pesos additional fund is good enough for our modest preparation in next year’s activity. We would still look elegant and decent without being lavish. There is beauty in simplicity! Besides, having modest preparation is keeping in step with the times and in line with the AFP’s call for austerity.

In September 6, the Immaculates and the Plebes of Beast Barracks 1983 will have a badminton tournament at the PA Wellness Center. The tournament (read: fun games) is called HINIKA Cup, coined after the plebes’ Hinirang class and the Immaculates’ Maharlika class. Five (5) teams each for men doubles and mix doubles will be played. Our plebes promised to give us hell like the one they got from us during their beast barracks. Hihikain daw talaga ang Immaculates! I can still recall a letter of one plebe, which partly said, “…while the Immaculates are soundly sleeping, we the plebes are still wide awake; busy washing our clothes, ironing our pants, cleaning our things, and many more, until dawn…” However, that letter did not reach its precious destination. The plebe’s SL told him to ‘load’ the letter. I can already imagine the endless ‘pangangaya’ of our plebes during the games, but this is one event we must not miss. Let us be there to reminisce fond memories with our beast barracks squad mates, who are part of that proud tradition handed down to us by Dimalupig ’81 Immaculates. Is MAHAPDI Cup badminton tournament appropriate for ‘84 and ’81?
