Waiting Game in St Kitts
JUST AFTER 4 P.M. TODAY, members of the Barbados team at the 44th CARIFTA Games should know whether they have been allocated rooms at the St Kitts Marriott.
Team manager Maureen Dottin told NATIONNEWS that was the time they had been given by the hotel. She said, however, they had not heard a word from any of the organisers about the situation.
The Barbados team arrived in St Kitts yesterday and slept on the floor overnight as there were no rooms available. Dottin said in spite of this “the athletes are good and in high spirits”.
Some of the team members had a training session this morning at the Silver Jubilee Stadium in Bird Rock.
The problem at the Marriott is reportedly linked to the presence of the England cricket team which is in St Kitts for the first leg of the tour of the West Indies. England have brought a large delegation and the hotel is overbooked. (SAT)
