Sep 30, 2012 Sports Comments Off on H. H. Halim Generator Contracting Co and Sons sponsors today’s GASP Open
The intense battle for honours will resume this morning when the nation’s premiere word formers convene in the pavilion of the Malteenoes Sports Club to battle for a place on the podium as well as lucrative prizes in the Guyana Association of Scrabble Players (GASP) Open Scrabble Championships scheduled to get underway at 10:00hrs.
H H Halim Generator Contracting Company and Sons have agreed to pick up the sponsorship tab and the top three players will receive lucrative prizes for their efforts and, as is now the norm, the best player outside of the top ten rankings would receive a special prize as the executive of GASP continue their developmental drive.
National Scrabble Champion, Abigail McDonald, will start as the firm favourite to cart off the top prize but as of recent, this presumption has been defied by the young players who have all improved remarkably. As such, McDonald could expect fierce opposition from Moen Gafoor, a sharp contender who is always at the top of his game, Leon Belony, who had been a tough customer in the three best in five showdown for the national title, James Krakowsky, always a clear and present danger, Colin Chichester and the Michaels, RO and Orlando among others. The females have also been creating ripples and should not be disregarded. They include Lindener, Grace Hercules and Ruby Cummings among others.
Whereas, in the past one could have easily picked the winning three, the situation has changed to a more complicated one where the young rookies like Maurice Munru and Wayne Cave have improved tremendously and can be worrisome.
Apart from destabilizing the top rated players, the low tiered players will have their eyes on the consolation prize for those of their ilk. Selecting a winner might not be as cut and dried as it seems.
Participants are reminded that they are required to be at the venue by 09:45hrs for registration and a prompt start 10:00hrs sharp. The rules in relation to lateness, where those clocks will be activated, will be enforced.
