The two influential figures in the sport also noted the support of sponsors and extended thanks to all the entities and individuals who have pledged their assistance to help resuscitate the game in Demerara.
The DVA partnered with Angcam Marine Supplies which is located on the second floor or Lot 1955 Paria Highway and a major supplier of marine products in Guyana.
