DREE Football Tourney -Prize Money enhanced

Enhanced! I guess normalized would be much appropriate and here I'm, as promised, with the updates.

I was not wrong when I speculated in my earlier post if the teams/clubs would turn up for registration to take part in the much awaited event of the year-the DREE Football Tourney. The reason being the prize money of INR 10,000/-, not lucrative enough to vie for. And the teams/clubs indeed contemplated taking part in the football tourney organized by HDFCC (Hong Dree Festival Celebration Committee) instead, where the prize money is INR 12,000/-. But, good sense has prevailed over the Central Dree Festival Celebration Committee, Ziro before much damage was done, may be due to the efforts of the people or due to lukewarm response from the teams- it is being heard that the CDFCC has enhanced its prize money to INR 25,000/- for winner and 15,000/- for runners-up (to be corroborated).

Now as the prize money has been normalized with the last year's prize money, it is expected that at least the last years teams/clubs, if not more, would vie for this prize.

More updates on the Dree Football Touney 2007 soon.
