|Tuesday, 28 September 2010 15:22|
In a first for the Turks and Caicos Islands, local wireless carrier Islandcom announced today (Sept. 28) the first ever Islandcom Wireless National Domino Tournament.
Scheduled to take place in October on four islands, the tournament is intended to bring the community together.
“This is a competition that will showcase the skills of the islands,” said Tanya-Sue Morgan, marketing manager of Islandcom. “Dominoes have long been considered the ‘national sport’ for many countries in the region. The game continues to draw people of all walks of life together for a positive vibe and a little friendly competition.”
Teams from all walks of life are encouraged to register at Islandcom authorized dealer stores to win the grand prize of a Blackberry 3G Pearl with Islandcom 3G service and $2,000 cash.
The competition will take place on the islands of South Caicos, North Caicos, Grand Turk and Providenciales, where an island winning team will share in the island first place prize of the registration pot or $500, whichever is greater, along with Islandcom and Blackberry prizes.
The first registration deadline is Oct. 6 for South Caicos, where the competition will take place on Saturday, Oct. 9.
North and Middle Caicos teams should get their registration forms in before Oct. 13 for a Friday, Oct. 15 tournament.
Players in the capital of Grand Turk need to register before Oct. 20 to secure a place on that island’s tournament Saturday, Oct. 23.
Providenciales registrations are due before Oct. 27. The Providenciales event will take place Saturday, Oct. 30.
One of the main rules of the game is to have fun. “As long as you are good at having fun, you are qualified,” Morgan said.
“This is near to our hearts,” she said. “We are not just here to do business, but to be a part of this community.”
“We’re pleased to be sponsoring this event,” said Sandra Garland, local owner and director of Islandcom. “We are completely committed to the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands.”
Islandcom launched the first ever 3G service to the country just three months ago, and according to CEO Kate Bonner, the reception so far has been great. “This is our way to say thank you to the community for our success,” she said.
More information and registration forms can be found at all authorized Islandcom dealer stores, including Kisa Services on South Caicos, K & J Foods on North Caicos and NC Services on Providenciales.
The event on Grand Turk will take place at Taste of the Islands.
