The Guyana Sport Shooting Federation will be hosting a Steel Challenge Tier 1 Shooting Match today at the GDF Timehri Range, sponsored by Boodram’s Bakery and Why Pay More Trading.
The GSSF, an affiliate of the Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA), continues to promote this simple, yet action-packed shooting sport to local pistol shooters by organising such matches on a regular basis. Steel Challenge is considered to be the fastest practical shooting competition in the world.
The upcoming competition will consist of two (2) different stages where competitors will shoot at 5 individual steel targets per stage. 1 of the targets is designated as a “stop plate” which when hit stops the time: this plate should be shot last. Shooters will be scored using an electronic timing device, penalties of +3 seconds are applied for any misses after the stop plate is shot and the time taken is the score. The shooter with the lowest time to hit all the plates wins.
The GSSF SC Match Committee reported that everything is all set for today’s Match which promises to be an exciting one with shooters competing in two SCSA divisions: Wildcat and Limited. The prizes up for grabs will be awarded to the top three overall in each division and the top three in each stage per division.
Match Director, Capt. Roul Bhudu noted that “Steel Challenge is the perfect way to introduce new shooters to sport shooting because of the easy to understand rules and scoring. Coupled with the satisfaction gained from the instant audible feedback that is the “ring/ping” heard when the bullet hits the steel, this proves to be very encouraging. This usually challenges shooters to return for more and better times.”
In accepting the kind sponsorship, Asst. Secretary/Treasurer, Mr. Ryan McKinnon noted that as with every GSSF event, strict firearm safety will be observed and wished all the shooters best of luck today. He further thanked the Match Committee and members of the GSSF who came on board to support the GSSF hosting such matches.
At the small ceremony at Georgetown Club this afternoon, President of the GSSF, Ms. Vidushi Persaud conveyed thanks to Managing Director Mr. Eric Doobay of Why Pay More Trading located at 7 Houston Public Road, Georgetown and to Managing Director Mr. Raymond Islam of Boodram’s Bakery located at 18A Foulis, Enmore, East Coast Demerara.
