All Stars first before judges
The tent judging dates for this year’s Pic-O-De-Crop competition were finalised Thursday during a meeting at the National Cultural Foundation.
The deadline for tent registration was on the same day at 4 p.m. and by that time, all six calypso tents were signed up.
During a brief meeting with event producer Aja and tent managers, dates were pulled by the managers for the various tents to face the judges. The judging dates span one week from Sunday, July 16, to Sunday, July 23.
The first tent to face the judges will be All Stars on Sunday, July 16. They will be followed by Super Gladiators on Wednesday, July 19.
Next up is Shining Stars on Thursday, July 20 while the following night, Friday, July 21, will be Stray Cats’ turn. House of Soca will be judged on Saturday, July 22.
On Sunday, July 23, De Big Show will be the last tent to judge. At that time, the names of the 17 finalists to face reigning Calypso Monarch Quon will be announced after the judges deliberate. (PR)
