The 12th International Marmi Festival, held under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani, began Friday and will go on until January 30, 2021. Organized by Qatar Al Gannas Society, the Festival is being held at Sabkat Marmi in Sealine.
The Festival's competitions began with Talaa championship for groups 1 to 6. Three participants qualified for the next rounds, namely: Mohammed Ghaleb Al Dossary and Barzan Team with two falcons.
Mohammed Mubarak Al Ali said the first day witnessed the participation of 6 groups, adding that the start of the competitions was somewhat delayed to ensure clear visibility so that the chances are equal among all.
Al Ali praised the participants' response, respect and application of health conditions and precautions, by wearing masks and showing the Ehteraz app, which must be green.
Head of the Hadad Challenge Committee Ali Sultan Nasser Al Hamidi pointed out that the event saw a record number of participants, with the crowded schedule of competitions throughout the month, adding the qualifiers will be held on many days during the morning and evening periods.
The Marmi Festival is aimed at preserving and promoting the sport of falconry. It sheds light on Qatari heritage through various shows and competitions.
