Lucrative prizes and gifts on offer
If one should pass on Irving Street, obliquely opposite Survival Supermarket where the K&S head office is situated, he/she would easily mistake that building for a modern day store on Regent Street. This conclusion could be drawn based on the display of a 2200CC Toyota Alex motorcar surrounded by a set of motorcycles and BMX bicycles. Then there are many food hampers that transforms the venue into a supermarket.
These items are not for sale but are actually the many prizes that are up on offer for footballers participating in the 23rd edition of the Kashif and Shanghai football extravaganza and patrons attending the fixtures. Activities are scheduled to get underway tomorrow afternoon at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) Ground and conclude on January 1 next at the National Stadium, Providence. In between, matches would be played at venues countrywide.
The motorcar was donated by the management of the Beharry’s Group of Company and was recently handed over by Chairman, Anand Beharry, in the presence of Vice Chairman, Suresh Beharry and Sales Manager, Jan Veerwey.
That presentation was followed by another, this time by officials of Victoria’s Fashions, Church and Light Streets, of 8 BMX bicycles, to be given to the Most Valuable Player in each of the eight teams vying for top honours in the inaugural Chico Junior U-13 Round Robin Football Lien tournament, also scheduled to get underway from December 22-January 1. Those bicycles were also on display.
The motorcycles can be won by patrons who are asked to retain their ticket stubs for a draw during the proceedings. There will be a similar prize for all of the games.
The K&S principals were in an expansive mood and yesterday morning added more goodies to the extensive list after the management of Survival Supermarket donated several food hampers which will be given to another set of lucky patrons attending the various fixtures.
Supervisor of the donating entity, Priya Tiwari, handed over the gift to Director of the K&S group, Kashif Muhammad. She offered best wishes on behalf of the management of her firm. Mr. Muhammad extended gratitude to his benefactor while intimating that his organization aims to make the tournament entertaining and interactive.
Mr. Muhammad said that his group will seek to interact with its traditional supporters by staging matches in those communities. He mentioned such villages as Uitvlugt, Beterverwagting and Buxton. He admitted that the organizers were forced to omit the Buxton Community Centre Ground from its itinerary for a few tournaments through circumstances beyond their control. “We are pleased to reinstate that community into our fold,” said Mr. Muhammad.
Activities get underway tomorrow afternoon at 17:30 hrs at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) where the rituals associated with the opening ceremony would be performed before the opening game between Buxton Stars and Pele FC. The finals will be held at the National Stadium, Providence.
