#THE Movi Group, having produced some top notch local and international events in the past, became the latest media company to become a partner with the 50th CARIFTA Games, making sure that the best production is secured for the regional’s greatest track and field competition in April.

#Movi Group of Companies President Burton Wallace said they are delighted to venture with the Local Organising Committee for the hosting of the games, scheduled for April 7-11 at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium.

#Before his team of accountant Chenisha Stubbs and videographer Edwina Maynard made a cheque presentation to the LOC yesterday in the foyer of the stadium, Wallace said last year when he learned about the games coming to the Bahamas, the reels started to roll to get their production in motion.

#“Sports has a huge role to play when it comes to nation building,” Wallace said. “It helps in elevating qualities like discipline, determination, team work and a passion for fitness in the physique of a nation,” Wallace said.

#“The Movi Group has been involved in the broadcast of sports for many international sporting events, some of which includes COMCAFA and FIFA, the Carifta Swimming Championships in 2017, Beach Soccer worldwide in 2018, ESPN PGA golf and most recently the Bahama Hoops, Battle 4 Atlantis and the Bahamas Bowl.”

#In collaboration with its other media partners, including REV TV, Wallace said the Movi Group will deliver the best production that has ever been experienced in the Bahamas. He said this year, they will definitely set the bar for all sporting events they have covered in the past.

#Pauline Davis, the Dame of the Games, said the LOC is excited to invite the Movi Group on board.

#“As a former athlete back in the day, being able to help someone like this amazing company to give back to the CARIFTA Games and by extension the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, it means so, so much,” Davis said. “We just want you to know how appreciative we are.”

#Lynden Maycock, the chief executive officer of the LOC, said it’s now time for “lights, camera and action.”

#“It’s time to put on the best CARIFTA Games, the CARIFTA show that this world has seen today,” Maycock said. “We’re bringing to the Bahamas the best junior athletes in the world at CARIFTA Games.

#“This year for the 50th anniversary of the CARIFTA Games, we are getting ready to put on the greatest sports production that has been seen in the 50 years of the games. In order to do this, we need the best team, a team that is capable and is skilled and is passionate and desirous to put on a desirable show.”

#The CARIFTA Games is a stage, according to Maycock, that will enable the young athletes to perform and shine against their peers throughout the region ands he’s looking forward to seeing them perform in this spectacular show.

#“The Movi Group will oversee the filming and recording of all of the wonderful action, the highlights and triumphs of these wonderful CARIFTA Games,” Maycock said.

#“Today, it is my pleasure to welcome our newest media partners to these 50th CARIFTA Games, the Movi Group.”

#While Movi Group and REV TV will be collaborating with the broadcasting of the games, Wallace encouraged all Bahamians to come out and show their support to the home team by packing the stadium during the games.

#And Maycock said the games is for everyone to participate and he encouraged persons to log onto Arawak X website and make their financial contributions to the games, no matter the size of the donation as they make the games the best ever.

#“All of the contributions that we receive, every dollar will be accounted for,” he stated. “So we welcome everyone in the Bahamas, everyone in the region, everyone fromanywhere in the world, to make their contributions to assist to these games.”
