GUYANA SPORT SHOOTING FOUNDATION CLOSES OFF 2019 AND USHERS IN CHRISTMAS WITH A PRACTICAL SHOOTING COMPETITION SPONSORED BY WOODPECKER PRODUCTS

Last Saturday 7th December, 2019, local practical shooters braved the rainy weather and headed to Timehri Rifle Range to participate in what would be Guyana’s last Practical Shooting Match for 2019.

By way of reminder, Practical shooting is regarded as any type of sport shooting that involves engaging targets while having to move with the firearm. Scoring takes into account three elements – speed, accuracy and power. Saturday’s Match which was sponsored by Woodpecker Products located at Lot 40 Fourth Street, Alberttown, Georgetown, did just that with the 5 (five) exciting stages that sought to measure the shooters’ ability in all three elements and coordinated under strict safety guidelines.

ORINDUIK DEVELOPMENT INC. supports GUYANA SPORT SHOOTING FOUNDATION

 Every Guyanese, upon hearing the word “Orinduik” immediately thinks of the major tourist attraction on the Ireng River which borders Guyana and Brazil before merging with the Takutu River and into Brazil to join the Amazon River. For local sport-shooters however, this name is becoming synonymous with the promise of an exciting, fun and safe Competition. A mere six months after closing off the 2018 GSSF’s shooting calendar with a Steel Challenge Shooting Match which was sponsored by Orinduik Development Inc., dedicated Match sponsors returned to this time support the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation with Match sponsorship for a Practical Shooting Match.

“LARA CROFT” AND “THE GOLD TOOTH GANGSTER” CREATE UPSET AT B.M. SOAT’S ANNUAL COSTUME MATCH

 

​Halloween is traditionally about the fabled creatures of the underworld. Ghosts, Ghouls and Zombies take many forms in the imagination. Increasingly, it has become acceptable for Halloween costume design to move away from the traditional spirit, under world, fairy story and magical themes, and to move on to just plain having fun. And that’s just what Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation did last Saturday 27th October, 2018 when for the third year, BM Soat Auto Sales backed the GSSF in their Annual themed competition which was a very keenly contested one, all within the confines of the safety rules and watchful eyes of Range Master, Mr. Dallas Thomas and his Team of Range Officials.

The Timehri Range transformed just after noon as members turned out in their costumes, with appearances from the Hunter, a Sport-Shooter, a Construction Worker, a Rifle Shooter, the Black Panther, a Biker, Lara Croft, the Gold-Tooth Gangster and even Count Dracula risked the afternoon sun to come out and participate, all doing so within the safety confines of the sport.
