Teams winning their respective zones received $10,000 while each team participating in the playoffs received a pack of dominoes, compliments of F&H Printing Establishment. Out-of-town teams were assisted with travelling expenses and accommodation. The organizing committee came in for high praise in raising the bar of dominoes competition in Guyana while the organizers, on the other hand,  felt that there were areas which needed to be improved.

A meeting was held last evening prior to the compilation of their final report.

The sponsors have indicated that they will again partner with the Georgetown Domino Association and will invite other sponsors on board in this national effort to return dominoes to its glory days. F& H Printing has also indicated that it will reach out to sub associations to try and make dominoes once again become a truly competitive sport, which will be played at the national level.

The company also stated that it would like to thank all who lent invaluable support to make the competition the success it was and singled out the Ministry of Youth, Culture, Youth and Sport, and in particular  Neil Kumar, Director of Sport, and  Roderick Harry, who provided crucial support in securing facilities.
