One of Guyana’s leading handgun shooters decided to put down his firearm long enough to
hand over a check for support to the Guyana Boxing Association. Harold ‘Top Gun’ Hopkinson recently fired in a donation of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars to the GBA to assist in the hosting of the second edition of the Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors tournament scheduled for next month.
Hopkinson, the Chief Executive Officer of Secure Innovations and Concepts Inc. said, he was heartened by efforts of the GBA which propelled him towards supporting the event. “I will always support legitimate and genuine associations,” the marksman said.
GBA president Steve Ninvalle, while applauding the donation, disclosed that Hopkinson had again hit the target. “As usual Mr. Hopkinson has scored a bullseye. The executive and members of the GBA are extremely pleased with the support shown which will enable us to be in a better position to properly host the tournament,” Ninvalle declared.
The Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors competition is scheduled to be held at the National Gymnasium from May 12th to 14th. The tournament had its first edition in Guyana last year April after regional administrators called for more focus to be placed on the nursery of the sport.
It is expected that over eight countries would be participating in the event with Barbados, Jamaica, St Lucia, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago already fielding teams.
