Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Now that the carnival is over, could anyone say when will be the election of officers for the Central Executive of Pan Trinbago.  I heard from a reliable source that PTB has appealed the decision of the court, in the two matters they lost.  Is it that the current executive  is prolonging their stay at the top with a lot of unnecessary legal fees, and are just making attorneys 'RICH' at the expense of panmen/women? Is it true that in one instance where they withdrew the matter with Mr. Keith Simpson and he won that matter out right, they are now appealing that same matter?

Could some one in the know please advise??

Cecil, I dont want to hear anything about government helping them on this project. The government have the structure up as it is today. Pan Trinbago have to complete it for themselves. If government put a cent more on this building, this will only encourage the BIG boys in Pan Trinbago Executive to be more wasteful and corrupt with the money they have in hand, if there is any left today.

Bertel, I agree but they enjoy begging. The government should make them put a percentage of what they make towards the building.

We must try to keep a discussion about PanTrinbago going on WST every day untill they get their house in order. Pan People in T&T too quiet, keep them in the media, we have to get a reporter on board.

Good going Cecil, let us keep our voices LOUD for the sake of PAN. It is time Pan Trinbago build their own home instead of waiting for someone else to do it for them. They must start it with whatever money is in hand.Stop the BEGGING.

Let us not go silent on PanTrinbago. We want to know if they finish counting the spoils of the 2013 season and how much they are going to contribute to construction of their headquarters?

We have to come up with a plan, get the media in T&T involve, ask the Minister of Culture if he knows how tax payers dollars is being spent by PanTrinbago, get all the steelbands involved. Pan people have to push back.

I am so glad and happy to know that there are people within the organization who are observing what is taking place in Pan Trinbago.  You have to take the fight to them otherwise all the good work that has been done by the former presidents will go to waste, Mr. George Goddard, Arnim Smith must be turning in their graves to see what has become of Pan Trinbago, most of the members are only seeking their own interest the "eat ah food" syndrome.  The place has become more corrupt than ever, and with the resignations of Mr. Keith Simpson and Mrs. Beverly Ramsey-Moore, and a membership who is afraid to speak out, you can just imagine.  Last year we had the special advisor  receiving $425,000.00 this year I have been told that we should look out for the GAS STATION RACKET, don't say that I did not warn you.  Mark the date in your calendar  15.3.2013 maybe the ghost of Gene Miles, for those old enough to know must be hovering over Pan Trinbago.

Moe, I have not doubt that Mrs Ramsey-Moore will do well at the helm of Pan Trinbago, but would she get the chance the way this thing is going? Who could believe that Mr Diaz and friends would appeal A COURT JUDGEMENT, WASTEING PAN PEOPLES MONEY TO REMAIN IN POWER FOR AS LONG AS THEY CAN? Because of the membership's ignorance and lethargy, anything is possible with this present Executive. They might even remain there FOREVER!!!!

When i was told Pantrinbago appealed the matter i was shocked and i am convinced that Mr, Diaz and his team are desperate and are prepared to do any thing to stay in power. Even if it means running the organization to  the ground. I am a registered player with Pantrinbago and i wish i was at the last AGM to ask the president why they spent over 1million dollars in legal fees in 2012 and pan man ketching the back and side to get their players fee on time every year even if the Govt give them on time .Up to now we cant get the 1 thousand dollars they receive  from the Govt to pay us for panorama preliminary. Look how long panorama finish and we cant get our money but Mr Diaz wasting money to appeal case. Why are they afraid?

Last year i accompanied my manager to a pantrinbago meeting and heard the vice president report that millions were made in profit for panorama and i know that did no trickle down to the bands now you taking the profit this year to pay lawyers just to prevent a member of All Stars and Tripolians from getting elected. 

Pan people is time we have a say in this matter.

P.S Mrs Ramsey- Moore is the manager of my Band and My Boss at Katzenjammers Steel Pan Institute and i  wish her team success at the election. If the pan people get this dynamic team leader for three years they will not regret it. I know what am talking about......Benefits benefits benefits, Petrotrin Katzenjammers is a success story she can now move on and fix Pantrinbago.
