Philippine Eagles 28th National Congress Day 1
The banquet hall was filled with
Eagles members from around The
Philippines as the 28th annual
National Congress began.
Lots of awards were handed out.
Here, the National President Avila of
The Eagles (second from the right)
and National Vice President Lim
(second from left) congratulate 2
kuyas for their good work.Epril and I went into Cagayan De Oro tonight to attend the first night of the 28th annual Fraternal Order of Philippine Eagles National Congress being held at the Grand Caprice Hotel in the Limketkai area of town. We had a nice time. There were lots of Philippine Eagles members from all over the Philippines, and we made some new friends, as well as saw our usual friends from the local chapter that I belong to. We hung out mostly with Mike Turner. Lots of awards were handed out. There was dinner, free beer, and for entertainment, there was a beauty contest with 16 very pretty ladies from the area. Provincial Governor Oscar Moreno was there as well.
The crowd had a good time cheering on the girls, and shouts of "Mabuhay Aguilar!!" were heard all evening.
Since everybody likes pictures of pretty girls, below are the contestants in the beauty pageant. Actually, Epril and I were surprised, because many of these contestants are the same girls at the various "bikini open" contests in and around Jasaan that I am frequently asked to judge.
And, as a bit of video, here is Governor Moreno serenading the beautiful contestants.
