The 2009 West Indian Postal team matches were concluded on Sunday last with Guyana scoring 607 points with 63 V-Bulls from a total of 630 points, shooting at 300, 500 and 600 yards.
In very tricky and at most times extremely difficult wind conditions, Guyana’s six-man team – Mahendra Persaud, Dylan Fields, Richard Fields, Ransford Goodluck, Dane Blair and Claude Duguid – recorded scores of 201: 22 at 300 yards, 201: 20 at 500 and 205: 21 at 600 to tally 607: 63.
Wind coaches were ACP Paul Slowe – who returned to Guyana the very morning and went directly from the airport to the ranges to join the shooters – Persaud, Goodluck, Blair and Dylan Fields.
Using this postal match as the final team training event before the team depart for Trinidad and Tobago to defend the Short Range Title at the Tucker Valley Ranges, the above six shooters were selected prior to the commencement of the shoot.
The winner of this match will be decided when scores from all territories are sent in to the West Indies Shooting Council. Each territory holds the matches at their respective ranges and scores are forwarded to the secretariat – only then are all scores known.
Eight shooters were selected to train as a dry run for the Caribbean Championships shooting 2 sighters and 10 to count (two rounds of ten shots) at each range with the first 7 rounds from the above six shooters counting towards the Crown Mining Postal.
Below are the scores shot for the match in order of shooting position.
