Twenty20 fans and the hundreds of Barticians home for the Easter holidays
are bracing themselves for what is anticipated to be a grand climax to the 3rd annual Aruwai Mining Enterprise sponsored, D&C Promotions 20/20 competition this weekend at the Bartica Community Centre Ground.
The four teams in the semifinal battling on Saturday for a place in the championship game which will be contested on Sunday are defending champions New Line Cavaliers who will come up against South Essequibo and home team Orient who will take on Wakenaam.
The respective teams were winners of their respective quarterfinal matches that were played two weeks ago at the same venue, the organizers taking a break for the Easter Regatta activities which included the usual Power Boat races on Easter Sunday and Monday at the Golden Beach Circuit.
Corporate support has been very encouraging according to the organizers and apart from the main sponsors Aruwai Mining enterprise that have donated the top three cash prizes of One Million, $500,000 and $250,000 respectively, Hopkinson Mining has also chipped in with their contribution.
CEO of Hopkinson Mining Morris Hopkinson, an ardent supporter of sports at the simple presentation to D&C Promotions Secretary, Cianna Persaud, stated that Hopkinson Mining has always been supporting sports development and the growth of athletes in Bartica over the years.
“We are particularly happy with the vision and commitment of D&C Promotions in taking on the challenge of bringing a competition of this nature to Bartica. It has caught on really well and Hopkinson Mining will always be there to support this venture, we are pleased to see the support of the fans and the commitment of the teams that take part.”
Hopkinson also noted that the many youngsters who turn up at the venue, apart from seeing some of the past national players on show will be motivated into taking up the sport. The event he said also serves to fulfill a social need in terms of clean entertainment for the fans.
Cianna Persaud thanked the entity for their continued commitment towards the tournament noting that they have always been ensuring that they make their contribution towards community building.
