POSTED: 03/9/11 11:49 AM

St. Maarten – The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) has issued one final deadline for all calypsonians and road march singers who have registered for Carnival 2011 Monday, March 14th is the very last day to submit music sheets. Music sheets submitted after this deadline will not be accepted and the calypsonians will not be allowed to participate in the competitions.

The music sheets should be dropped off at The Daily Herald’s offices on Bush Road by 5:00 p.m. on Monday. The SCDF has been announcing registration deadlines since November 2010. Registration closed at the end of January. The music sheet deadline was announced subsequently for March 4t.
“We have done our part by announcing everything very early for Carnival 2011 in order to properly prepare and organize our local events,” President of the SCDF Stuart Johnson said.
“We urge the singers to abide by the deadline for this Monday as there will be no extension after that,” he added.
The calypsonians still have to start practicing with the bands that will be backing them up for the shows. With the calypso eliminations on April 1st and the road march competition the following day, Johnson said there is no space for extensions of deadlines anymore.
