Action packed day as Pocket Rocket Boxing Gym stages Father’s Day sports extravaganza
Revelers could expect much frolic and fun when the Pocket Rocket Boxing Gym, more renowned for nurturing young boxers to national and international acclaim, switches its focus and teams up with popular Berbice wicketkeeper Winston ‘Junior’ Rose and several other sports personalities in the Ancient County including former athlete, Lance Fraser to host a Father Day sports extravaganza dubbed ‘To fathers with Love,’ at the Scot Church Ground, Princess Elizabeth Road New Amsterdam, Sunday June 17 next.
Organizer of the event, Orland ‘Pocket Rocket’ Rogers has promised a day of fun and frolic and is urging the public to support the venture. He said that funds accrued from the function would be channeled to developmental works of the PRBG and would complement the efforts of the business community.
The indoor activities include dominoes and other board games and will be complemented by a number of outdoor including soft ball cricket, football, athletics and volleyball among others. There will also be a number of novelty games including sack race and lime and spoon.
The organizer has also assured that children and other folks will be considered as there will be merry- go-round and trampoline activities to add to the excitement.
A Pocket Rocket production devoid of boxing activities is unheard of and fans will not be disappointed as boxers out of the gyms in the Ancient County will slug it out later in the evening. Those gyms vying for top honours are Central New Amsterdam, Tiger Eye of West Canje, Jammers Boxing Gym of Rose Hall Town and the Pocket Rocket Boxing Gym. Some patrons will win special prizes including the best dressed couple as well as those that are accompanied by their children.
Several corporate entities have teamed up to make the event a success and the organizers wish to express deep appreciation for their input. They include Digicel, Ansa McAl, Celebrity Times DVD, Sanjay’s ‘Doggy’ Jewelry in the New Amsterdam market and Inspector Ginnis among others. Activities get underway at 10:00 hrs.
