    Nice to see our government giving back and supporting the youth. Where is all the POSITIVE press to show that our PLP government gives back and support our youth. Never saw this story on the front page of (surprising) or the daily RG rag…although that is not a surprise!!!! Where are all the UBP and OBA critics that say our government only gives millions to football and cricket! First comment was from OBA man Kin Swan. He must have “forgotten” to thank the government for supporting these men financially and taking the time out of their busy schedules to play 9 holes. Its not cheap to send these boys to South America. They deserve it! Thank you Bro, Burgess, Blakeney and Sis Minors. Silence speaks volumes!

      I may be wrong but I do not believe that the government contributed monetarily at all. There were two sponsors there that evening (see photos)and my impression is that pay 100% of the costs. I believe the Sen. Col. Burch was there to play a round of exhibition golf with them for support and to give a speech. Good to see them out anyway…but it would be wrong to have others believe that these two young men are going overseas because on us. Thanks to the sponsors!
