FPSC has completed the ratification of its constitution and by-laws, as approved by a majority of its founding membership. The same document has been sent to the Philippine Embassy along with other documents for FPSC accreditation.
FPSC awaits for the approval of its accreditation as it prepares for its 1st Induction and Ball at the Continental Hotel, Kuwait City on the 9th of December 2005 along with FCC and PBAK, two other Filipino organizations in the State of Kuwait.
FPSC continues to hold Monday and Friday practical shooting competitions at the National Range Complex. Above photo shows some of the members who have participated in the competition. Incidentally, one of the members, Alexander Ilocto, who died on a road accident going to Iraq was in the photo, taken just a few days prior to his accident.
FPSC was able to collect KD170 as "abuloy" or contribution from its members, for the bereaved family of Mr. Ilocto, and has given the amount to his wife. Several members of FPSC also attended the 9-day prayer vigil for the eternal repose of the soul of the departed member.
