“We have received the preliminary entries from the countries. Out of 28 countries there will be 27 countries in attendance.

“Of course the country to date with the most athletes submitted is Jamaica with 80 as per normal as they usually have two in each event. Bermuda has submitted 63, but again we will see as the season progresses.

“Plans are moving along great as we are heavy into our marketing plan, and it will only increase as we draw near April.

“The athletes and officials will be staying at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, with most of the teams arriving Thursday April 9th and departing April 14th.

“We also have a number of spectators from various countries who will be in attendance and have already purchased their tickets to the games.
