Domino players and enthusiasts are expected to converge at Turning Point Sports Club this Sunday to participate in a big Father’s Day Competition which is being organized by Senior Organising Secretary of the Georgetown Domino Association Mark ‘Jumbie’ Wiltshire.
Wiltshire, who has been one of the key figures responsible for the growth and visibility of the sport, will stage the annual event in recognition of Fathers Day and teams from all across the country are being invited to partake in the one-day competition.
The competition has prize monies in excess of $200,000 up for grabs with the winning team set to receive $130,000, while second and third place finishers will take home $60,000 and $20,000 respectively along with hampers.
