As the CARIFTA games unfold, the hiccups that teams have experienced are real. This is indicative of the buzz on social media as one media house reported about the Barbados experience. As such, nationals in Saint Kitts and Nevis and the wider Caribbean Region have questioned the planning efforts that went into boarding for the teams.
Alleged reports indicate that the Marriott Hotel is overbooked. Thus, room accommodation for some teams presented a backlash. Such, a scenario exists due to the fact that the England Cricket Team is on Island and it is reported they travelled with a sizeable contingent. To make matters worse indications are that athletes slept on the floor of a conference room or ballroom last night. Additionally, posts circulating on Facebook are insinuating that even though some teams were problem free with their accommodations they are not entirely satisfied.
It is the view that St Kitts & Nevis did not do the things they were supposed to do with regards to the hotel so teams didn’t have the total number of rooms requested, therefore delegations are all over the place in Frigate Bay, commented an anonymous spokesperson who relayed information to Nation News.
On the contrary, trackalerts.com is indicating that Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago did not have any problems checking into their rooms. Further reports, indicate that Cayman Islands, Aruba, Guadeloupe, Dominica and Turks and Caicos Islands are the teams which also had accommodation problems.
Such a pressing issue needs to be addressed as information has gone viral. Therefore, inquiring minds would like to know if a statement would be forthcoming from the personnel responsible for making the arrangements for the CARIFTA games.
