Bahamas: Rockers To Lose Junkanoo Crown? Furious Knights ‘Hopeful’ After Appealing Results
THE results of the New Year’s Day Junkanoo parade in Grand Bahama could change as an appeal hearing over the unofficial results was held on Monday by officials of the Grand Bahama Junkanoo Committee.
#Monday’s meeting was held at 6pm at the C A Smith Building where a committee, which was also comprised of Junkanoo officials from New Providence, heard appeals put forward regarding the unofficial results that were announced on January 2.
#The Tribune understands that Platinum Knights’ group leader Thomas Curry attended the meeting and presented the group’s case to Junkanoo officials.
#When contacted yesterday, Mr Curry said he was confident about the case he had put forward during the hearing. “I feel good about it, and I believe an announcement will be made tomorrow (Wednesday),” he said.
#Platinum Knights, the two-time defending champion and favourite to win the parade, fell in the standings from first to third place after penalty deductions were applied, and the Superstar Rockers group was announced as the winner.
