The TRIBE Survey

By now most, if not all, TRIBE masqueraders should have received an email asking them to take part in a survey  to help TRIBE "improve your TRIBE Carnival experience".

I have to say I was pretty surprised to see that TRIBE not only sent out a survey this year, for the first time in their history as a Mas Band, but also that the questions touched on many issues raised by masqueraders in their reviews of the TRIBE Carnival experience for 2010.

From costume quality to size of the band it was as if the survey was a measure of just how many of TRIBE's  masqueraders share the dissatisfaction that has been expressed since Ash Wednesday. I mean I went as far as to publicly state that I am not even sure to play mas in 2011 because the "value" of my experience this year was not worth it and sure enough there is a question asking that very same thing!

It is also interesting to note that the survey also asks our opinion on the size of the band, so I am hoping there is an overwhelming response that it is just TOO DAMN BIG! I also got a a laugh from the question asking us masqueraders to rate costume design for Carnival 2010 as well as the question asking how we got registered. I hope those who got a "hook up" stated exactly that under "other".

Anyway I do encourage you all to complete the survey, one friend of mine was not too enthused as she asked if TRIBE really cares what we think. Well judging by the fact that they have tried to address certain issues over the years when masqueraders have complained I would hazard to guess that MAYBE this time  reducing the size of the band (which seems to be the major issue) will actually happen for 2011, and I am not talking about reducing it by 50 people! Give us some room on the road to enjoy ourselves without the crush of people! The mob that was Ariapita Avenue this year is still fresh in memory; oh to have the numbers from 2006/2007! 

For those who have completed the survey, I am curious to know, what three words did you use to describe TRIBE? Leave me a comment!
