Junior Pan
 
 
 
 
 
Stanley, one of Jesse James Maxi Taxi men, took us and another boat called Sara, to the All Stars Pan Yard on Saturday the 10th of July, to see the junior - or the stars of the future. The ages ranged from school starters through to the senior scholars.
 
 
 
 
 
To open the event we had St Margaret's Boys performing the Trinidad and Tobago National Anthem
 
 
 
 
First up was the 2's, or the little ones who only play two notes as they start their learning of the pan
 
 
 
 
Then the 3's
 
 
 
 
The 4's
 
 
 
 
 
and the 5's
 
 
 
 
 
Tense parents
 
 
 
 
 
Future performers
 
 
 
 
 
A nervous teacher and the only member of the audience not on the edge of their seat
 
 
 
 
A supportive grandpa in the best hat of the day
 
 
 
 
with plenty of ventilation to his solar panel
 
 
    
 
 
Someone out in the street was bopping to his hearts content
 
 
 
 
 
The radio announcer and the music techy
 
 
 
 
Concentrating so hard
 
 
 
 
 
We were charmed by this youngster - who had played his bit in the 5's -  watching his older brother whilst cradling his little sister
 
 
 
 
 
We were entertained by a couple of past masters, now world wide performers
 
 
 
 
The children watched in awe
 
 
 
 
 
Plenty of support from the flag bearers
 
 
 
 
 
The final act was the young Renegades, who without doubt have their place in the adult band assured
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL FANTASTIC TO SEE THE YOUNGSTERS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS
