Congrats Congrats Fonclaire. What can I say, a raging storm indeed. Listening to you,  as I have done countless times since the posting, you could feel the energy and passion with which the band played, only to be let down as you were twenty years ago.What a performance. What an arrangement, as if to say, "Are you going to deny me again?".

While I do not agree with the final placement of all the bands this year, I must state that all the performances were really good. 

I do think, however, that the time has come for those involved with the planning and judgeing of this competition  to be more open with their scoring. This is a competition where us, the public, have no idea what scores (on a categorical basis) each band attained on each judge scorecard. They like to say that they want to raise the musical understanding of the public but how can they if we have no idea what they are looking for. Maybe the color of the pans and canopy on or off wins it.

Now is the time for pan trinbago to start the education process of teaching the pan listening public. At least, I want to learn.
