Under the theme Soles Ablaze, the sports meet, slated to commence at 9:00 a.m., will attract participants from the BDF, the Barbados Regiment (regular and reserves officers), full-time and part-time personnel from the Barbados Coast Guard, representatives from the Barbados Cadet Corps and the BDF Sports Programme.
The sports day was conceptualised to foster a spirit of camaraderie and awaken the competitive spirit among the various units within the BDF.
