Bird Flu Hits China.. Halts to Feather Imports to Trinidad!

Feather shipments are being delayed due to yet another bird flu retro virus outbreak in China. After speaking with the Ministry of Agriculture, I was informed that there is a delay of feathers coming into Trinidad from the United States without proper documentation as they do not allow ANY importation of feathers from China. All feathers must have an accompanying health certificate from the USDA along with letter from the company from which they were purchased, in addition, all feathers have to originate in the USA.

My sources state that it may take some doing to get feathers without the required documentation in time for Carnival however, most of the larger bands are not being affected by this recent development but the small, medium and bands late to launch will be undoubtedly be affected.

The "Tief House" Saga !!

So, after I wrote on Friday that the rumored price of Beach House 2009 is allegedly $800.00TT (as told to me from a source) I have now been very, very reliably informed that this price is not the final figure. In fact at the moment a price has not been set for Beach House 2009, however it has been intimated that those of us looking to patronize this fete can look for a cheaper price tag. Great news for those of you outraged at the rumoured $200.00 increase over 2008 !

In addition, seems like there are some interesting developments when it comes to this fete! As we all know the venue for Beach House 2009 has moved to a location which will be revealed at a later date, HOWEVER party goers should be on the look out for another promoter holding a fete in the former location of Beach House at Ortinola Estate in Maracas Valley ON THE SAME DATE!!

Now these advertisements make TOTAL sense:

My sources say that this proposed fete has NO AFFILIATION with Beach House 2009, there is no split in the Beach House camp with two fetes on the same day, Beach House 2009 (the original) is still being planned as usual just that it will NOT be held at Ortinola and any other fete that might just happen to be at that location on the 19th of February is NOT the Beach House fete that so many look forward too on the Thursday before Carnival!

So, my question to you people today ( I real asking questions lately eh) is will you support a new fete at the old Beach House location OR will you support BEACH HOUSE in any location?
