Fifty-six teams vying for $500,000 F&H domino prize

Fifty-six teams will be vying for the $500,000 prize when F&H Printing hosts its domino play-offs tomorrow at the National Gymnasium.

The matches will be played on a ‘two in, one out’ basis until the finalists have been decided. Five rounds of dominoes will be played tomorrow and the finals, comprising four rounds, are set for Sunday. Only the Mahaica/Mahaicony zone has failed to participate.

Organisers said the start times will be enforced without any degree of leniency on both days of competition therefore teams travelling from long distances are urged to take note. Teams that are not present will be disqualified if the match is called. Tomorrow’s match will open with a March Past and judging of the Best Team Uniform followed by the opening address, outline of play and code of conduct, announcement of the winner of the best uniform prize, distribution of score sheets, drawing and commencement of matches.

Director of Sport Neil Kumar will take the March Past salute and deliver the opening address. Negla Brandis, Clive Powell and Ajay Baksh will judge the uniforms while Barbara Marshall will coordinate the matches. Colin McEwan will be in charge of stewardship and, along with Hazim Hakh and William Boston, adjudication including disciplinary action and disqualification.

The sponsors have emphasized a zero tolerance on indiscipline as the Domino Association is attempting to regain some lost ground through hosting this competition. To date, only 45 of the 56 teams to play in the play-offs are known.

The prizes up for grabs are $500,000 for the winner plus trophy and nine gold medals; $250,000 plus trophy and nine silver medals for the first runners-up and $100,000 plus trophy and nine bronze medals for the second runners-up. The third place finishers will get $60,000; fourth place finishers $35,000 and fifth place finishers $25,000. The MVP at the finals will win $10,000 while the first double love winners in the play-offs will win $5,000. The best female in the play-offs will $5,000 while the first love in the finals will win $3,000.
