Themed “Wanted: Wingvan Shoot for a Cause,” the event will be held at the NIR Shooting Range, Sta. Fe Resort, in Barangay Granada, Bacolod City.

Shooting enthusiasts from members of the Philippine Air Force Reserve in Negros, 5th Air Reserve Center, Philippine Air Force ROTC Alumni Association, Basic Citizen Military Training Class Tagapagtanggol will compete against the professional shooters in Negros and Iloilo.

Other competing shooters include executives from Vallacar Transit Inc., personnel of Bacolod Eagles Club, Land Transportation Office (LTO), Bureau of Jail Management (BJMP), members of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) and Philippine National Police (PNP).

The said competition will be held in six-courses with a minimum of 180 rounds for standard, classic, production, open and Pistol Caliber Carbine.

Registration fee is P800 for civilian and P600 for lawman.

Proceeds of the shootfest will go as a seed money for the construction of the Philippine Air Force Reserve Center at the Pana-ad Stadium, Barangay Mansilingan in Bacolod City.

The center aims to house all the different sectors of the Air Force Reserve in Negros.

PAF’s Sergeant Modesto Justiniani Puertas Jr. said “our Air Force Reserve in Negros has no office of their own and meetings were just held in coffee shops where they plot their rescue plans and disaster preparedness.”

“Also, they conduct trainings and activities anywhere where they are welcomed. This benevolent fund raising project will help booster the morale and effectiveness of our Air Force Reserve Personnel knowing that they could have comfortable work place where they can perform their duties and responsibilities effectively,” he added.

The competition aims to build camaraderie among Air Force Reserve personnel and government agencies, and establish a good inter-agency relationship which can lead to more cohesive and better service to the Filipino people.
