Road Runners Club will cone off the course and do the finish line arch. DJ Wax is in the house! The various event managers are excited…ready to jump into their role and satisfy their public.
Candice Blackman manager of the Final Day of the Games this year, as well as wearing the hat for manager of The Meeting and Welcome Section and Ms. CariFin is hard at work to see things connect and flow, as this is the objective of this year’s Games. I spoke to her about her feelings about the final day of the Games and she had this to say, “With all the work and preparation gone into the Games I expect it to go well and all have a grand time, a lot of early work was put in place and up to late last night we were making sure we had the making of an exciting Day’s event.”
Anthony Le Maitre the adult novelty event manager is all fired –up to get his line of events going. Speaking to him yesterday he was saying, “Everything ready, I just waiting to go!”
The Kid’s Park manager – Patricia Wiltshire can’t wait to have the children’s park all buzzing with activity and excitement. The chair plane is up in the Kid’s Park just waiting for the 1st group of children, Chubby’s play park is another crowd puller for the kids with their mascot and sampling going on. Meeting JJ and friends is also something that the kids could look forward to. There will also be pony rides in the kid’s activity on the agenda. A long list of children’s novelty events have been prepared and just waiting to be run off.
The official opening is another thing to look forward to. It would call to attention those present. At center stage would be the riveting Ms. CariFin representatives in a significant role, steering her team’s participation in the ‘Best Tent’, the 3 minutes ‘Am I Fan Enough” (A 3 minutes interpretation of their team’s music) as part of the Meeting and Welcoming section which is being judged. The theme for this year’s Games is “The connection of Fun, Fitness and Friendship.”
A Full description of the program is provided. Here
Team Jamaica is here with us, Paulette Thompson would be defending her female walking title. Clifford Bogle would be participating in the male cross country event as he did last year and should provide some stern competition in this division.
This year’s warm up is Zumba. Ms. Sreshtha Tewarie of Zumba Dance Fitness would lead the athletes through a routine guaranteed to get the athletes warm enough to take on the Sevilla course.
The athletic activities would start off with the children cross country with 7 and under running by the bridge and the other age-groups doing the entire lap. The walking, fun and male and female cross country follow. The fun cross country is open to family and friends of CariFin.
The Finals of the tug of war would see the two finalists pull the best of three to decide the winners.
The Dance Off would create some stir as a male and female dancing partners represent their institution in this competition.
The Ms. CariFin is the curtain closing act…everyone is eager to know who would reign over the CariFin universe. We have some fit, intelligent and talented representatives that would be part of the days proceeding and would finally vie for Ms. CariFin Title. Neil Diaz would be conducting the duties of the aerobic instructor for the Ms. CariFin competition.
See you at Sevilla Golf Course today as we celebrate – “The Connection of Fun, Fitness and friendship.
