Sir Reginald Samuel Athletics Classic Meet in full gear for this weekend

The organisers of the second annual Sir Reginald Samuels Athletics Classic Meet are in full gear for this weekend (May 1-2) at Yasco Sports complex.
President of the Concerned Parents/Teachers Sports Association Lucas Brumant told OBSERVER Sports that a number of clubs and individuals have already registered to take part in the event and that registration is still ongoing.
He also indicated that most of the overseas club invited to take part have confirmed their participation and are expected to start arriving by Thursday and Friday.
Besides our local clubs and schools, at least 100 athletes and officials from the sister island of Barbuda, Nevis, Montserrat, Tortola, St Martin, Dominica and the USVI are expected to participate.
Antigua & Barbuda is expected to showpiece Carifta Bronze medalist Tahir Walsh along with Cejah Green and other top up and coming athletes.
The event will start at 1 pm and proceed until 7 pm on both days. The Opening Ceremony will begin at noon on Saturday.
The registration fee is $150 per club and $20 per individual.
The Concerned Parents/Teachers Sports Association is appealing to the general public to come out and support our local stars.
Sir Reginald Samuel’s contribution to sports in Antigua & Barbuda is unsurpassed. He was a former Director of Sports and former Chairman of the National Sports Council and is the foremost sports official in Antigua & Barbuda still alive.
Sir Reginald was a former teacher and Sports Master at the Antigua Grammar School. His contribution to the Arts, Sports, Culture and Carnival is most commendable.
Sir Reginald is readily noted for his designing of the Antigua & Barbuda National Flag and the sculpture of the family at State Insurance.
The Sir Reginald Samuel Track & Field Classic is sanctioned by the Antigua & Barbuda Athletic Association and has the kind support of the Ministry of Sports.
