The Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) would like to thank its members and followers for their generosity throughout this year and informed that they hope to continue their good work next year.
In 2010 the Association donated $400,000 to Haiti, $375,000 to Pakistan Flood Relief, $275,000 to Cancer Patient from Enmore and $250,000 to Windies Female Quartet.
They were also involved in fundraising activities through softball matches at Crabwood Creek where they raised $497,000 and Mahaicony Creek where they raised $350,000. These monies were raised through contributions from its 35 members and many followers.
The GFSCA sent two teams to the USA to participate in the Florida Cup 2010 which took place on Feb. 12th, 13th, and 14th.
The Floodlight ‘A’ team went to the final played at the Fort Lauderdale Cricket Stadium, but lost. It is the only local softball organization that ever sent teams to this World Premier Softball event.
The General Marine nationwide softball tournament organized by the GFSCA was played in three categories (Male Over-40, Male Open and Female Open) and was successfully completed in less than three months. The competition started September 12 and finished at the GCC Ground Bourda on December 5.
According to the Association, the” STAG BEER & EL DORADO RUM” nationwide softball will commence on January 23.
This will also be played in three categories (Male Over-40, Male Open and Female Open) and will last for 5 months since the GFSCA will make 4 weeks available for the GT&T 10/10 Softball Tournament.
Two weeks for the beginning and two weeks for the ending of GT&T.
All teams wishing to play the “STAG BEER & EL DORADO RUM” tournament will be accepted and can call Wayne Jones at 650-1790.
February 2011 the association will be playing a fundraising match at Tushen for the community center there while on March 4th, 5th & 6th the GFSCA will send two teams for the fourth consecutive year for the Florida Cup 2011 in the USA,
In April next year, Floodlights A & B will play at Crabwood Creek to raise funds for the CWC Crematorium Site while in May, for the first time ever in softball history there will be inter-county matches in all three categories, Male Over-40, Male Open and Female Open. It will be called the MIKE’S PHARMACY INTER-COUNTY SOFTBALL Competition.
June 2011 will see the ending of the STAG BEER & EL DORADO RUM Tournament before the GFSCA host teams from South Florida, Orlando, New York, Connecticut, Maryland and Toronto to play against Guyana best 4 softball teams in July in the GUYANA CUP 2011.
In August 2011 the TROPHY STALL NATIONWIDE SOFTBALL male and female softball tournament will begin. This competition will finish on December 4.
The GFSCA is a registered organization at the Deeds Registry, Registrar of Friendly Society and National Sports Commission. West Indies Softball Association (WISA) and the South Florida Softball Cricket League (SFSCL) and their members wish all cricketers well during the coming year.
The GFSCA, who recently contributed to the four Guyanese in the West Indies Women’s team for their tour to India next month, is also committed to the revival of Guyana’s hardball cricket and is advising all youths to stick to the major form of cricket and if they then feel they cannot make it there they will be welcomed to the softball fraternity.
