AS a supporting party to the Mayor of Arima in the staging of this Event we must comment on the clashing of dates/events.
This Event was first carded to take place approximately one year ago and was cancelled/postponed as a result of the calling of the State of Emergency. The Arima Borough then came back this year with their Arima-Fest which started in early August and culminates with the final Event, the Arima-Fest Box Kart Derby.
We were not previously informed of the date and when sprung upon us, with all prior Arima-Fest Events already planned, we could not change the date.
Those in the know must realize that we are the major proponents of avoiding clashing-events, and when this happens it just could not be avoided.
