“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.

B.M. SOAT ANNUAL COSTUME MATCH ON STREAM WITH G.S.S.F.

For the third year, BM Soat Auto Sales backed the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation in their Annual Costume Shooting Match. This themed competition has once again been exclusively sponsored by B.M Soat Auto Sales and is expected to be a keenly contested one. In the past, members turned out in their costumes, with appearances from Pocahontas, The Joker, Superman, Cowboys, Hondo, Magic Mike, Contractors, Arrow, Super Girl, a Farmer, Racer and even a Cricketer. This year the match is bound to be even more exciting with invited participants expected to once again take part donning costumes of their liking, hats, wigs, paint, garb are welcome but will have to be within the safety confines of the sport.

This Match was kindly sponsored by NVR Security Services Inc. of Lot 160 Section ‘D’ Non Pariel, East Coast Demerara.
