Gregory Rambarran was returned unopposed as the President of the Berbice Volleyball Association
(BVA) when that body held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the All Saints Church Hall in New Amsterdam, Sunday November 27 last.
Several other nominees were assigned to executive positions including Levi Nedd (Vice President), Philip Adams (Secretary), Leon Butchey (Assistant Secretary/Treasurer) and Deodat Lallbeharry (P.R.O). The committee members are Mahesh Motiepersaud, Luen David, Krishna Seelochan, Tamala Felix, Dion Seelochan, Halima Azeez and Cynthia Harris.
Meanwhile, shortly before the elections of office bearers Mr. Rambarran delivered his report and expressed gratitude to all those who assisted in promoting and developing the sport. He singled out officials in the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, the Director of Sports, Neil Kumar, the Region Six Department of Education, G.T.M, DTV-8, LRTVS, the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, Food for the Poor, Guyana Times, Kaieteur News, and Stabroek News, the many local and overseas sponsors as well as the affiliated clubs.
He urged all affiliates to be proactive during the coming year in promoting the sport. The volleyball President further urged the new executive to pursue the establishment of a beach Volleyball Court at the Esplanade Park in New Amsterdam even as he reminded them that volleyball promotes healthy lifestyle. He further urged the affiliates to develop a more scientific and professional approach in keeping with the policies of the parent body.
Mr. Rambarran described 2011 as a challenging year and praised the association for successfully organizing several competitions, this despite the vagaries of the weather and other setbacks. He further lamented the unavailability of an indoor facility in Berbice to augment the efforts of his executive even as he acknowledged the contribution of his organization to several groups including the Orealla/Siparuta Sport Council and female members of the IGG Volleyball team. The newly installed executives then pledged to work assiduously during the fiscal year to promote and develop Volleyball in the Ancient County.
Meanwhile, a decision was taken to hold the final of the Reggie Goberdhan Memorial Trophy League Competition in January 2012. The executives also aspired to field a President’s Twelve Team on December 4 when they act as hosts for a challenge competition at the National Gymnasium, Nelson Mandela Avenue. Activities will also include the formal commissioning of a special volleyball (Taraflex) floor. The Association’s final competition for the year will be held on December 18 at the Albion Volleyball Court and the Rick Sakawat Memorial Trophy will be at stake.
