THE Tasion Group of Companies through its Freeway Motors arm, is making a timely sponsorship of K10,000 to the Bomana Bullets snooker team on Saturday to take part in this year’s Pacific MMI Corporate Snooker challenge.
The sponsorship was timely as the competition starts tomorrow.
Managing director Ted Tasion was pleased to announce their sponsorship and maintained that their sponsorship was part of its community service obligations, and the Bullets were a worthy investment.
On behalf of the executive chairman and the founder of the company, Tasion said he was pleased that the Royal PNG Constabulary had engaged in such fellowship as they would add to the increasing awareness of the police force.
“There is a lot of negativity about the police and it is my hope that through this partnership, the event can be used to foster greater partnerships between sports, people and police personnel,” he said.
Tasion also thanked the executives of the Bullets for accepting the sponsorship package.
He urged the players to participate in the true spirit of the game.
Apart from the sponsorship, the Freeway Motors will also be considering other incentives for players as the competition progresses into the Port Moresby Billiards and Snooker Association (PMBSA) season, including the refurbishment of the tables at Bomana.
The sponsorship will go towards players’ registration fees, uniforms and other administrative costs, to fully participate in the competition.
The Bullets comprise of police personnel totalling almost 30 players within the three divisions of A, B and C grades.
