Sold Out Section Update and Island People News Letter

By now many of you have registered either locally through the Mas Camp or online, for the various chapters of ‘Heaven on Earth’. Your eager response to our presentation for next year has been both encouraging and humbling.

There were a few hitches in getting started and we truly apologize to all for the inconvenience – especially to our online family who were affected by the technical difficulties we experienced with the website on Tuesday, August 26. The late opening of the Mas Camp and a power outage and low voltage situation, for almost four hours on Tuesday, also limited the registration process.

To our online masqueraders most of you have four general queries with regards to: the availability costumes in your chosen chapters; the option of tankinis or one-piece female suits and the provision of boy shorts for Carnival Monday. As past masqueraders you will be given preference of selection, unless there is a production issue where costumes chosen are not available because of size or other special requirements and if so you will be notified by email in a timely manner. While no one-pieces are being offered, tankinis are optional for six chapters- just let us know when you’re registering. Rest assured ladies you will have boy shorts for Monday Mas.

As we keep you in the loop it’s also important that we let you know that the chapters Rays of Light and Carnival have been sold out. As well, both local and online registration for the Sonia Mack chapter, Paradisus, will open on Wednesday, September 03.

Some good news for our New York family! You can look forward to seeing some of our costumes at D' Vale Vibe party this Saturday August 30th at the Brooklyn Museum. For details please visit Please note that we will not be registering people at the event.

Now that we’ve overcome our initial challenges, we’re back on track to catering to your needs. This is just one of the many updates you will be receiving on your way to Carnival 2009 and also please feel free to send for additional information at:

Rugeri presents Chutney!

Rugeri Promotions launched their all-inclusive section "Chutney" from the Trini Revellers presentation "Sweet T&T .. A tribute to Trinidad and Tobago" last Saturday:

Female - $1,995.00 TT ($333.00 US)

Male- $1,695.00 TT ($283.00 US)

I have been to Rugeri's launch before and it is a family affair, held at a residence in Maraval, with a good support of friends and masqueraders. Over the past years Rugeri has presented one of the most affordable all-inclusive sections in the band Trini Revellers and holds the distinction of selling out first! For 2006 it was Anthony &Cleopatra, 2007 Paris is Burning, 2008 Azteca, with Chutney I also predict as seller as the costume is attractive and captures the theme beautifully.

More information on registering for Chutney, contacting the section leaders or about Rugeri is available on their website which has been updated.
