VILLAGERS of Nacavanadi in Gau, Lomaiviti, living across the border have been called to support the Pacific Energy Nacavanadi Old Scholars 7s tournament at the village on December 7-8.

The tournament, revived after 12 years, will be used to help fund the renovation of the Nacavanadi Fijian School.

Tournament co-ordinator Akariva Vura said the school buildings needed immediate repairs.

“The buildings badly need repairs,” Vura said.

“They are old and old scholars of the school had started funding the repairs. We are seeking the support of the people of Nacavanadi to return to the village during the tournament to help host, billet and cater for rugby teams that will compete in our tournament.

“We are looking for 24 men’s teams and 16 netball teams. The registration fee for 7s is $300 and the winner will get $3000. The netball registration fee is $100 and the prize for the winner will be $1000.”

Vura said they had invited 7s king Waisale Serevi to be the chief guest.
