T&T shooters aim for regional championship

Sunday, October 7, 2012


T&T’s finest shooters will take to the West Indies Fullbore Shooting Championship from October 9–15 in Guyana. A team comprising Norris Gomez, Ezekiel Joseph, Stephen Chung, John Soanes, Carl Awong and David Rajnauth are expected to compete against shooters from Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana, at the tournament which has been hosted annually by the West Indies Fullbore Shooting Council since the 1950s. Despite being in high spirits, the team selected by the Trinidad Rifle Association remains without the use of a military rifle range for practice, as well as the necessary permits provided by the office of the Commissioner of Police. The association has also been without funding from the Ministry of Sport.
