    Would you kindly publish that the man was injured in an accident with his ski boar.  I was there.  He hit a wave, with his wave runner and it threw him out of the boat.  Dear father why do we still try to make mountains frome a mole hill I do not know.

      So he was stabbed by his jet ski? Do you really want to stick with that?

      I don’t think they talkin bout that young man. That accident happened in the afternoon… hours before this incident which was at 7 at night. I was there for the race too, but the races and presentations were through and I went home well before 7, thankfully it seems. However, I hope both young men have swift and safe recoveries and I’d really like an update on the jet s rider that looked like a nasty accident.

      They're not talking about the young man on the jet ski who had the accident in the afternoon.   They're talking about the young man who got into a fight and got stabbed at 7 pm that night.

    Another woderful event hosted by our BT Ministers Scotland and Seymour. Seems these guys cant learn to stop hosting events that promote drinking and negative behaviour. I drove by there and cant tell you home many young guys I saw out there drinking openly.

      Yup, my question to you is why do you tell untruth to the public.  I was present at this event from beginning to the ending.  And I can taste the bad mindness, envious taste by your comments.  The event began at 12 noon and by 4 pm there were plenty people, families and their children.  There was no liquor being sold on that beach.  The usual beach boys bought their liquor from the gas station next door, and they stayed in their usual daily place in area close to the gas station by the bathrooms.  You are not telling the truth to the public about how many young guys you saw there drinking openly.  That is not true.  The young guys were concentrated on winning the ski race, and they were NOT drinking.  Red Bull was being promoted and advertised, and that is not an alcohol beverage.

      The young man was injuried by an accident flip of his boat by a wave.  I saw it with my two eyes, and he was not drinking.   If you were there you would have known that.  So obviously you were not there.   In the quiet of the  afternoon around 6.30. when majority of the people had left, a few of us sat around and had a few beers with our friends on the far corner of the beach.  Ny comments are the truth for the public information.  Stop trying to throw a political hammer in the event.  It  was a beautiful day.

        The incident referred to here is not the accident but rather the stabbing. And Yes I saw many young "underaged" young boys consuming alcohol and I do believe there was a certain Minister who provided the alcohol. So dont try and deflect before I start to name names. 

        Oh by the way ask the same minister how his weekend went and if his "friends" made it home safely. 

        Unneh dont play with me because I have the dirt on that scumbag

      Did thye provided the alcohol or was it purchased next door at our wonderful waiting to get elected Osbourne Bodden liquor store.

      You drove by?  So what you observed on a drive-by substantiates your view that all this event did was promoting drinking and negative behaviour?  How pathetic.

      I went to this event all day.  It was very well organised, well attended, and a thoroughly enjoyable day.  The organisers had nothing to do with negative behaviour (although I never witnessed any during the event itself) or alcohol being sold or drunk there.  This was no doubt was purchased by locals at the liquor store next door.  The stabbing took place during an argument at the beach AFTER the event had ended, and had nothing to do with the event itself.

        Ex PAT , when a Caymanian says drove by in local slang that means, I was there for a short while.
