– 13 delegates to contest crown
The plans for this year’s Easter Regatta activities were unveiled Sunday last at the Sunset Boulevard Beach Bar, Bartica.
Based on the committee’s presentation, the town will definitely be a domestic and international tourist/entertainment hub during the Easter weekend of March 25–28.
Among those gathered were scores of residents, members of the business community, racers including former champions and a bevy of prospective pageant delegates.
The organizing committee members are Gordon Bradford – Chairman, Elizabeth Moonsammy – Secretary, Angelica Fredericks – Pageant Coordinator, Dave Scott – Power Boat Races Coordinator, Calmeth Younge, Trecia Singh, Dave Younge, Emily Perreira, Alden Marslowe and Winston Miller Jr.
Ms. Moonsammy speaking on behalf of the committee gave assurances that this year’s events are planned against the background of the upcoming township inauguration and the 50th Independence Celebrations.
“The Committee is working assiduously to bring our plans to fruition and we are currently reaching out to prospective sponsors and supporters to enable us to bring off a fabulous week of activities,” Moonsammy said.
This year, the pageant has attracted 13 Delegates, all from Bartica and they will be showcasing the local creative talents of three Barticans – Dwight Beaton, Elizabeth Waddell and Tiffanie Sampson.
This year, too, the Pageant has been shifted to its original staging day, which is the Saturday Night before the Races, so that “the queen can be in her element” on race day.
“In addition we have created our own logos to ‘brand’ Regatta, since Bartica is the home of the Regatta and the Ms. Regatta pageant is the oldest in the history of pageants in Bartica.
Moreover, the committee has also planned a Soca Party to follow after the Power Boat Races slated for Sunday January 27, which will feature at least one international soca artiste along with local talent.
