St.Lucia Carnival: J4F E-Poll

In true, Just4Fun fashion, their revelers must always have a say! This year, Just 4 Fun's 2010 theme, "Great Loves of the Past" is promised to be the BIGGEST, SWEETEST and the BEST ever seen in St. Lucia.

Just4Fun is giving its revelers an opportunity to vote on some of the sections that will play on the road this year. J4F wants you to select your favorite "Greatest Love of the Past," to become a section for Just4Fun's 2010 Carnival portrayal. Your vote will count and it is absolutely free. So get your friends and other loyal just4funners to cast their votes. E-Poll closes March 30th 2010.

  1. HMM & SO IT BEGINS. NYREE AS I WAS TELLING YOU ON FACEBOOK I STILL THINK THAT THE BANDS & ARTISTES IN ST LUCIA GET THEIR SEASON STARTED TOO LATE. I KNOW THE CARNIVAL WORLD IS @ A VIRTUAL STANDSTILL TILL AFTER TRINIDAD CARNIVAL BUT ONCE ASH WEDNESDAY COMES IT SHOULD BE GAME ON FOR SUMMER FESTIVALS LIKE ST LUCIA'S. IT'S MOST IMPORTANT TO THE VIABILITY, SUCCESS & FOREIGN APPEAL OF OUR CARNIVAL THAT WE PUT OURSELVES OUT THERE EARLY, & NOT JUST ANY OLD WAY EITHER. IF THE INTENT IS TO ATTRACT NOT JUST LOCALS BUT ST LUCIANS LEAVING ABROAD & FOREIGNERS, (& I'D LIKE TO THINK THAT'S THE INTENT & IF IT'S NOT THEN IT SHOULD) THEN YOU HAVE TO COME GOOD & COME EARLY SO THAT YOU BECOME THE CHOICE SUMMER CARNIVAL IN THE REGION OVERS COMPETITORS LIKE BARBADOS & ST VINCENT, WHO ARE COMPETING FOR SOME OF THE SAME FOREIGN CLIENTS. IT'S EARLY MARCH & I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT BEFORE THE END OF MARCH WE HAVE OFFERINGS FROM THE BANDS & ARTISTES.
    THIS J4F E-POLL SEEMS LIKE A NICE IDEA BUT AGAIN LATE. BY NOW COSTUME DESIGNS & NAMES SHOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN CONFIRMED & READY TO LAUNCH, THAT WOULD THEN MEAN THAT THE POLL (A) DOESN'T ACTUALLY COUNT AS IT'S SAID TO BE, OR (B) IF IT DOES COUNT THEN IT TROUBLES ME THAT (1) COSTUMES AREN'T READY OR (2) THEY ARE & THAT PENDING THE POLL RESULTS NAMES ARE GONNA BE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO DIFFERENT COSTUMES & THAT BEGS THE QUESTION, OF WHAT SIGNIFICANCE IS THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN & COLOR SCHEME TO THE NAME ASSIGNED TO IT; UNLESS OF COURSE THEY HAVE A COSTUME READY FOR EACH SECTION OPTION & ONCE THE POLL RESULTS COME IN THE CHOSEN 10 MAKES THE CUT & THE OTHERS GET SCRAPPED. THAT IN ITSELF I THINK IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE BUT LET'S SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, HOPEFULLY THEIR COSTUME DESIGNS & COLORS AREN'T WORSE THAN LAST YRS. CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM THOUGH ON THEIR 10 YR ANNIVERSARY, EVEN THOUGH THE YRS DON'T ADD UP TO ME. 10 YRS WOULD MEAN THEY STARTED OUT IN 2000 BUT I REMEMBER PLAYING MAS WITH J4F THEIR 1ST YR OUT WHEN THEY DID SOME KINDA WORLD THEME & I WAS IN THE CHINESE SECTION (VEIL'S SECTION) THAT YR NINJA DAN HAD A TRACK CALLED KARATE & WE KINDA MADE THAT OUR SECTION THEME SONG (AHH GOOD TIMES LOL, JUST HAD A BIT OF A FLASHBACK LOL) ANYWAYS, THAT WAS 2002, WHICH MEANS THIS YR WOULD MAKE IT 8 YRS. I REMEMBER THAT CAUSE THAT WAS THE SAME YR I LEFT FOR SCHOOL & I CAME BACK TO PLAY WITH THEM THEIR 2ND YR WHEN THEY DID A BLIND MANS DREAM, WHEN ALL THEIR SECTIONS WERE IN SHADES OF GREEN (A GREAT PORTRAYAL YRS AHEAD OF ITS TIME, MANY PEOPLE DIDN'T GET IT BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS GENIUS). SO I DON'T KNOW HOW THE 10 YRS ADD UP BUT ALL THE BEST TO THEM REGARDLESS, THEY'D STILL BE 1 OF MY 2 OPTIONS TO PLAY ON EITHER DAY LOL I'M A J4F ON 1 DAY & RED ON THE OTHER TYPE REVELER LOL THE DILEMMA IS CHOOSING WHICH DAY FOR EACH LOL.
    OH ON A SIDE NOTE, I DON'T GET THIS NEW SLOGAN FOR ST LUCIA CARNIVAL, I MUST BE IN IT, OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES, HUH!!! WHAT??? LOL

  2. You are always so on point with your comments. I agree with you, but I will admit this is the first year, talk of carnival is 2 months pre-jazz and not post jazz.

    This is the 3rd year, I'm into my blog and unlike the first year, I have taken a real back seat when it comes to Lucian Carnival. The EFFORT goes unappreciated!

    Like you, I've considered playing in both RED for their costumes and J4F for the time to be had on the road!

    The St.Lucian slogan is "I MUST BE IN DAT" ... s.thing like that! Like you, not really a WOW slogan unlike Shane Larcher's " 'I' MUST BE IN CARN'I'VAL!" which I prefer and it has such life and longevity!
