Tent leader Glenroy ‘Sulle” Caesar, Lexy Joseph and Aubrey Burgin are scheduled to address the members on how the tent is expected to operate for the season. The tent had a cast of 19 calypsonians in 2010 and also held its usual in-house extempo competition which has been a feature of Graduates over the years. Some of the Calypsonians expected to perform with the tent this year are Sulle, Tajo, Black Messenger, Blakey, Nzimbu, Gumbsy, Wassy, Nubian Empress, Sweet Sixteen and several others. The tent hopes to have a minimum of two shows before the preliminary judging.
