Road Works Update - Tell me the Honest Route!

So, coming out of Island People's feedback forum, Roadworks 2, is the revelation that the band will be changing it's  former policy and will make a lunch stop for Carnival 2010:

Check out the Meeting outcomes below from the last Road Works Session!

ROAD WORKS 2 MEETING OUTCOMES.... Tell me the Honest Route!

Should we go downtown?

Yes, majority of the masqueraders would like to go downtown

Would like to get downtown early – some suggestions to make this happen –

Start here at IP Mas Camp (officially allowed to leave from your band house) and end in stadium (parking in stadium, shuttling masqueraders to Mas camp)?

Start at Victoria Square? Breakfast at Victoria Square and go to the first judging point there?

The intention is to go downtown, but the reality is that things may change on the day, on the road. There are scouts on the road assessing the flow. If the route changes it’s because we are looking out for the interest of the masqueraders – don’t want to have people waiting.

Will discuss with NCBA the most practical starting point and where we can go first as they try to separate the big bands from hitting all the judging points at the same time.

In order to get downtown early, masqueraders need to assist the band in starting/deploying on time
 Should we stop to eat and where?

The plan for 2010 is to stop to eat

Rest time is scheduled for 1 hour, give or take, depending on the movement of other bands on
the route

There will be finger foods available throughout the day on the road

Problem with trucks separating during the day

Due to the size of the wheels on 3 or 4 of the trucks, there were problems turning on St. Vincent St. These trucks are not being used next year.

Interesting developments, especially since Island People masqueraders have always been in support of the NO lunch stop policy in the past, citing the fact that other bands needed to "rest" from playing mas to have lunch while they were all about non stop, all day, jamishness!

On the agenda for the next Road Works session, which takes place on Friday December 11, from 6-7pm at Island People's mas camp is “Security, For Surety…..The Priority!”
