Golden Vibes 2011



Another BIG MCOBA Australia event, another BIG success!
We would like to thank all old boys of Mahanama, 
their families and friends who attended Golden Vibes 2011 on November the 5th.



The night got off to an auspicious start with the lighting of the traditional oil lamp by the committee members of Mahanama College OBA Australia. The older part of the crowd were the first to show off their skills on the dance floor as the band started off with some classical tunes from the 70's and 80's.

In between the music and a sumptuous buffet, everyone had a wonderful time catching up with old friends, buying tickets for the raffle draw and bidding on the live auction where a bottle of 'Gold Label' was auctioned off.


There was literaly non stop entertainment throughout the night as the the daughters of MCOBA Australia committee members performed amazing dances and sang in between intervals by the band which were well recieved by the crowd who was soaking up the fun atmosphere.

The night neared its end on a high with the band entertaining the crowd before the Sri Lankan national anthem and the Australian national anthem were sung to end another successful event by MCOBA Australia.


MCOBA Australia would like to thank and acknowledge everyone who worked tirelessly to make this year's Golden Vibes possible and everyone who attended to make this the huge success it turned out to be.

All photos from the night are now in the Photo Gallery. We would greatly appreciate anyone who would like to visit our forums and leave some feedback on the event. It is through your valuable feedback that we can make our future events better and even more successful.

Battle of the Golds Australia OBA T20

Inaugural T20 encounter between MCOBA and DSSOBA

The first ever T20 encounter between the Australian old boys associations of Mahanama College and DS Senanayake College was played out at the Cavelier's Cricket Club grounds in Clayton on Sunday the 11th of September. DSS won the match by 4 wickets.

Despite overcast conditions and intermittent rain throughout the day, the event was well attended by old boys and their families from Mahanama and DSS along with past pupils and their families of Visakha Vidyalaya and Muesues College who played an invitation T20 match as the curtain raiser. Everyone enjoyed the day out with DJ Rush spinning out some good tunes early on and a papare band playing baila towards end the day.

The T20 match between Visakha and Muesues was keenly fought with the girls playing on bravely through rain. In the end, Visakha prevailed thanks to a couple of good knocks from their batswomen.

The T20 between Mahanama and DSS got underway soon after. DSS won the toss and chose to take the field. They bowled extremely well and aided by outcast conditions and a juicy wicket, did a good job in making batting difficult for Mahanama. Mahanama however batted on gallently and ended their innings with 81 runs for loss of 7 wickets. The sun was out when DSS openers came out to bat. They started well and were coasting along before Mahanama fought back with a few quick wickets. However DSS did well to not panic and reached their target with 2 overs to spare for the loss of 6 wickets.

The day ended after the winners trophies and medals were presented to DSS and Visakha with Mahanama and Mueseus collecting the runners up medals.


MC OBA Australia vs DSS OBA Australia T20 Big Match 2011


The first ever T20 big match between MC OBA Australia and DSS OBA Australia is proposed to be held in September 2011 in Melbourne.

While the goal of this event is to organise a get together for OBA memebrs from both sides in a family atmosphere, this will be a great opportunity for all past college crickets from both sides to show your colours and represent your college.

As this event is still in proposal stage, please be kind enough to contact us early and indicate your availabilities. We also highly appreciate your input and assistance to make this event a success.
