Pangasinan braces for Palarong Pambansa 2012

The upgrading and rehabilitation of the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC) in Lingayen is in full blast that includes the construction of the grandstand’s southwing in preparation for the staging of Palarong Pambansa 2012 on May 6-12 in Pangasinan. Once finished, the facility can accommodate 15,000 spectators, from the present 10,000 sitting capacity. Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. assured all Department of Education’s (DepEd) officials, athletes and delegates that all additional constructions and repairs will be completed as scheduled. It will be remembered that Gov. Espino, then police provincial director of Pangasinan, was the Palaro’s Task Force Commander when Pangasinan first hosted the event in 1995. He led the completion of the NRSCC in record time of 49 days with full support of then President of the Philippines Fidel V. Ramos, a native of Pangasinan. (PIO Photo by Meinard Sadim)
