Next up was the Chancellor Challenge on April 27, 2011 and boy what a challenge it was!! never to be taken lightly, it separates the weak minded from the determined; Central Bank had a good turnout for this event despite the rainy weather and supported each other all the way to the finish line.  Central Bank ladies, Esla, Wendy and Chelsea made a clean sweep, capturing the female 1st, 2nd and 3rd placing in this event.

CBTT ready to go!!

Basking in the glory

The Aerobics Burnout was held on May 11, 2011. The Central Bank ladies shone brightly! Krystle Gomez and Ayana George put up a formidable front. Krystle and Ayana proudly walked away with 5th and 2nd place.





The Carifin Games climaxed with the Family Day held on the Sevilla Golf Course Couva. It was a lovely day; tents representing the various financial institutions were beautifully adorned for judging that would take place later that day

Executing our Dance Routine

There were tons of games and sporting activities for all ages, as well as the much anticipated Cross Country Run.  In the male category Akeem Simon of The Central Bank came out strong and determined all the way to the finish line with a proud placement of 2nd.  In the female category, our ladies Liza Brown-Worrell and Mayon Dragon, represented with stamina and style.  Our Ms. Central Bank Esla Anthony placed first in the female Fun Run category setting the pace for the events that followed later on in the day.

By afternoon it was time for each institution to present their dance routine and boy was CBTT ready after putting together a routine in less than 15 minutes…sheer genius.  In true trini style, Central Bank executed a high energy performance to Machel Montano’s ‘Blazing the trail’ and got the crowd hyped up with an impromptu instruction to wine by our Ms. Central Bank Queen Esla Anthony.  We walked away proudly with second place in both the dance and tent category.

Now it was late afternoon and time for the much anticipated crowning of the Ms. Carifin, without a doubt, our representative was the obvious winner from the start, she demonstrated, class, poise, intelligence and became the eventual much deserved winner, giving Central Bank its fourth consecutive win!!!

Carifin 2011 was definitely fun filled; challenging and memorable. Central Bank staffers demonstrated their camaraderie, dedication and a fun-loving spirit.  Without a doubt we are looking forward to Carifin 2012!! Be part of the experience!!!
