Sore Points


Share post:

SOME CALYPSO TENT managers will be looking to have the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) march to a quicker beat when it comes to releasing points for one of its fiercest competitions during the Crop Over Festival.

Both Sharon Carew-White, tent manager of House of Soca and Hallam Nicholls of De Big Show are hoping that the organisers would move faster than 49 beats per minute when releasing the results of competitions and clearly state the criteria for judging.

Following the 2016 festival that included the showpiece Pic-O-De-Crop and the popular Sweet Soca and Party Monarch, the tent managers said they received the points on August 23 – about three weeks after Grand Kadooment, the culmination of the festival.

According to NCF’s 2016 rules, the results are to be released within seven days after the competition. (TSG)
