Hi Hugh having a great time, sorry you are not on the island. Well Saturday night was great fun visiting the pan yards for the prelim competition. The only mistake we made was thinking that as usual, in Tobago, timings mean little. Foiled again as everything seemed to run like a well oiled machine. This meant that we got to Carib Dixieland as the judging finished!! Raced to Steel Explosion at the basketball court by Redemption to see their routine and judging, great sound & energy & lots of people. Left for the Buccooneers but decided to go straight to Black Rock as traffic into Buccoo rammed and we had seen their set earlier in the week. By the time the judges arrived at Katzenjammers there was a massive following & a real party atmosphere. Having won medium band at the Panorama finals last year Katzenjammers have a lot to live upto but i can honestly say they were brilliant, loads of energy, great arrangement, very polished performance. What a night and we have a bonus that the big bands are judging on Monday so we will be off to see Redemption who we have heard are really good this year. Life doesn't get much better than this!!
