We have to install some target mechanisms as we are moving the number of targets up from 14 to 24,” Persaud said.He added, “We’ve been getting a lot of support from the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and Brigadier Patrick West. They have been instrumental in ensuring that we are where we are today.”The Fullbore captain added that as it relates to team preparation, the unit has been progressing as well, with regular shoots on the weekend, the latest being last weekend.“The team has started training.
