Speaking to the T&T Guardian yesterday, Moore-
Miggins said she has scrutinised the Panorama 2015
rules and regulations and "surprisingly" noted that
the rules are silent on how bands should respond
when called upon to play during rainfall or if rain
begins to fall during their presentation.
"We believe that this is an oversight and that
management ought to have suspended play until
after the downpour. In fact, our clients witnessed
that some bands were actually made to wait until
the end of the downpour," Moore-Miggins said.
She said Carib Dixieland's players are totally
demoralised and she has been instructed to call upon
the Pan Trinbago management to make a decision
on this matter as stipulated in Rule 17.2 of the rules.
"We are requesting that the situation be resolved
by allowing our clients to compete at the finals in
order to make up for the disadvantage they suffered
during the semi-finals," Moore-Miggins said.
When contacted yesterday, Diaz confirmed receipt
of the letter and said that it was sent to Pan
Trinbago's attorneys for their perusal.
"As a result, I cannot comment further on this,"

Band seeks berth in final
Tobago s Carib Dixieland Steel
Orchestra has sent a legal letter
to Pan Trinbago highlighting
their dissatisfaction at being
required to play in a heavy down-
pour of rain during last week-
end s National Panorama Semi-
finals at the Queen s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain.
The letter, dated February 2, 2015, was addressed to
Pan Trinbago president Keith Diaz and was sent by
the orchestra s representing attorneys Deborah Moore-
Miggins and Company.
The band s management said they were two minutes
into their rendition when a torrential shower came
down and drenched the players.
The letter stated: "The 12 or so frontline players
were directly caught in the downpour and the other
players were also affected by the wind blowing rain
onto them and their pans."
The letter said the 90 players and their instruments
were drenched during the presentation and the players
even had to scoop out water as they played their tune.
"It served to distract the players considerably and
it adversely affected their performance. In addition,
the sponges on their base sticks were saturated with
water. The entire episode was a travesty---an insult to
the national instrument and a disaster for the players
themselves," the letter said.
Band members feel they were
tremendously disadvantaged and
did not compete against their rivals
on a level playing field, the letter
added. Having gained 261 marks
in the preliminaries, the orchestra
was only awarded 258 in the semi-
final and failed to make the final.
The steelpan players argued that
during the downpour they could barely hear their pans
and are convinced that the judges, who were further
away, could not have heard them either.
