Subject: Bengali Cricket Tournament in September
Dated: Jul 24, 2007
Dear Member,

iSABA (International Sports Association of Bay Area) is holding its
Sixth Cricket tournament this year in San Jose in September solely for
Bengalis in the Bay Area. 

This cricket tournament has captured the interest of many among us
that passionately play cricket every Sunday.  Prabasi organized the
first tournament in 2003 and that set the ball rolling. Then a bunch
of people got together and re-christened this as the "Bong Cricket". 
Prabasi was the main sponsor of this annual event until 2005. At this
point iSABA was formed and the group now is a registered non-profit
organization, we now have our own cricket ground and we have a bunch
of folks that passionately feel about cricket.  We want to open this
up to the broader community and include every single Bay Area Bengali. 

The tournament, this year, will be over two weekends
