Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation strengthens alliance with GDF
Directors of the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF), led by President Ryan McKinnon, recently paid a courtesy call on the Chief-of-Staff of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) at the Defence Headquarters, Camp Ayanganna, Thomas Lands, Georgetown.
During the visit the Foundation discussed with the Chief-of-Staff, Brigadier Patrick West, Col. Nazrul Hussain and Col. Ronald Hercules their plans for the future and gave an update as to the progress of the GSSF and its programmes thus far.
The Chief-of-Staff wished the Foundation well in their future to continue sport shooting in Guyana. Since its inception, the GSSF has enjoyed the kind assistance of the GDF and the use of the Range at Timehri for its shooting events.
Topics discussed included the increase of collaboration between the GDF and the GSSF, the Foundation’s supporting role in assistance with steel challenge shooting as a sport on the GDF sports calendar, financing for the upgrade of the GDF indoor pistol range, establishment of a sport shooting unit and the newly instituted range rental fees for the Timehri rifle range.
“The Foundation looks forward to continued collaboration with the GDF and this was so documented in Mrs. Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon’s sentiments written in the Visitor’s Book after being invited to make an entry,” a release from the GSSF concluded.
