James says, “I know of others in the area that operate drones commercially without a licence – or, therefore, insurance. They are endangering the people and property below their aircraft. Aerial photography can make all the difference to the marketing of a property but it needs to be done safely, with the appropriate licence and insurance.”marketing aerial photography aerial videos drones drones for estate agents August 21, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

THERE were wins for the National men’s and women’s teams, as the 2017 GTT Indoor championship continued at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall on Tuesday evening.In the first of the matches, the Ladies unit were up against the more physical Antonio’s Grill Hikers.However, the Ladies proved that girl power is nothing to mess around as they trampled their opponents 8-2.Their victory was led by a pair of field goals each from Aliyah Gordon and Tricia Woodroffe as the side showed their full grace and splendour.It was Gordon who opened the scoring after a clean interception on a Hikers Long pass. She returned to complete the double in the 8th minute.Also finding the nets on the night were Marzana Fiedtkou (5th minute), Latacia Chung (27th minute), Maria Munroe (29th minute) and Nicole Eastman (30th minute).Meanwhile, the National Men’s side were in no playful mood as they thrashed Saints Hockey Club 11-0Robert France and Jamarj Assanah both slammed 4 goals each while Andrew Stuart scored a double and Ryan Branford notched up one goal to complete the rout.The Greens, on the other hand, were made to work a little more as they finally overcame the old Fort Titans.Arody Bradford scored twice in the win 5:3 with a strike each from Aderemi Simon, Jason Dos Santos and Kevin Spencer.For the losing side, it was John Abrahams double and Ascofu Simon’s lone strike that accounted for the goals.The other results of the night saw GCC Pitbulls defeat Hikers 5-1, GCC Spartans draw 1-1 with the ever-improving Old Fort Shooting Stars in the women’s division, while Saints Hockey Club lost to Saint Stanislaus Hockey Club 5-3 and Pepsi Hikers suffered a demoralising 8-1 defeat at the hands of Bounty GCC.
