NCB, with its usual large contingent, amidst some intermittent showers, totalled 197 points, to win the tenth edition of the meet, distancing the other six competing institutions.

Second place was The St. Vincent Co-operative Bank – the “Penny Bank Posse”, with 157.

Docking in third was former winners RBTT with 131. The National Insurance Services (NIS) was fourth with 126. The Mustique Company finished on 107; the General Employees Co-operative Credit Union (GECCU) had 106 points and First Caribbean International Bank, another former winner, 93, in that order.

With traditional races such as the “egg and spoon”, the “banana race”, the “three legged race”, the “needle and thread”, among others, as well as the sprints and walking races, there was no shortage of excitement and fun.

In the end, all units were winners, as even in the semi darkness and a damp outfield, and organizers offering to call it a day, the enthusiasm of the athletes made them choose to continue.

The Most Outstanding Male performer was Anthony Jack, of the Mustique Company. He contributed 26 points, with Cornelia Moses, of GECCU, the top Female performer. Moses finished on 19 individual points.

The Mustique Company was adjudged the winner in the March Past category. (RT)
