All interested participants are encouraged to attend this meeting as the committee wishes to discuss important topics
such as additional prizes, calypso tents, the judging system and the conditions to participate The committee appreciates
the input from the participants.
Registration forms will be distributed during the meeting on Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 which is the first in
a series meetings to be held between the committee and the calypsonians.
