Traditional Cross Harbour Swim

Last Saturday was the traditional Cross harbour swim from the Carenage in the town of St. George’s to world famous Grand Anse Beach in the south of the island.
The fastest time this year was 38 mins, the sea was choppy and it was windy!
Congratulations to Grenada’s top 2 swimmers who came 1st, in male Kerry Oliverre and female Oreoluwa Cherebin. They will be going on to Carifta swim meet later this month.
The event saw 73 entrants from 11 years to 70 years. This was also a good warm up for triathalon teams and iron men like Danny Donelan.

A son of the soil’s service to Country and Tourism recognised

Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association (GHTA) celebrated its 50th Anniversary at Spice Island Beach Resort on Saturday 15th December 2012 and honored distinguished son of the soil Sir John Augustus Watts KCMG for his years of service to his country and in particular to Grenada’s Tourism.

Present at the ceremony were the Governor General Sir Carlyle Glean and Lady Glean, Prime Minister Hon. Tilman Thomas, leader of the Opposition, Dr Keith Mitchell, Minister of Tourism Dr George Vincent and the President of GHTA Mr Ian DaBreo as well as past presidents, board members and members of the association and the Press.

The evenings host, owner of Spice Island Beach Resort, Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG gave a synopsis of Sir John’s years of service to Grenada, recognising him as being the driving force in persuading the hoteliers in 1962 to form the Hotel Association and then of Sir John himself becoming President of the Caribbean Tourism Organization that same year. Dr Watts as he was then known, was a Charter Member and the driving force behind the formation of the Rotary Club of Grenada, holding the post of District Governor for the Caribbean and parts of South America for two years. Sir Royston gave an example of Sir John’s unstinting commitment , stating how Sir John gave up his dental practice in Grenada for two years and moved to Trinidad where the airlift was available to fulfill his duties as district Governor which involved traveling throughout the region and internationally. He stated that when you talked Tourism, John Watts and Gert Protain were the Grenadians you thought of.

Earlier in his career, Sir John with his friend Herbert Blaize started the Grenada National Party (GNP). Dr Keith Mitchell in his congratulatory speech made mention of his bid for leadership of the party in 1989 when he ran against Herbert Blaize, noting that Sir John, unlike many of his peers, was the one person who stated, “Let Democracy prevail” when he wrested leadership from Mr Blaize, which led to the formation of the New National Party.

Award

Grenada Employer's Foundation

Award presented by Grenada Employer’s Foundation

On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the ‘Grenada Employer’s Federation’ McIntyre Bros. Ltd was awarded as one of their founding members.

A little history about McIntyre Bros:

Third generation McIntyres Michael McIntyre and his sister Anne McIntyre-Campbell are a living link with the past and fourth generation McIntyres, Fiona and Alicia with the future.
In 1895 Ethelbert and Donald McIntyre had visions of greatness incorporating their agricultural import and export business in Gouyave and aptly naming it McIntyre Bros Ltd. But it was not until 1922 that Mc Intyre Bros Ltd got the Ford Franchise for Grenada and there emerged habitual visions of greatness.
Second Generation Colin and Charles ”Laddie” McIntyre went up to England to study, ensuring that they were qualified. They were initiated. “All your aspirations are on the way to fulfillment, in spite of your mechanical know-how you must not lose your perspective.”
Colin McIntyre and his team striped an Anglia and a Prefect (Ford vehicles of the 40’s and 50’s) at McIntyre Bros garage and Colin built his own vehicles: a convertible which was called “the Bomber” (used in the Carnival Celebrations) and a hardtop called “the Snake” – a first for Grenadian mechanics. Photos of these conversions were published in the Ford Times.
The brothers were keen yachtsmen. Colin built his own speedboat “Mermac”, using a supercharged Zephyr engine and raced it against Trinidad’s top speed boat of the time called “Kiss Afire” – winning the race.
In the 1950’s they restored a Model T Ford (the remnant may still be found by the Benoit property near to CK’s Super Value)
McIntyre Bros Ltd has the proud distinction of being the oldest Ford Dealer in the world with the same family running the business. The company celebrated 90 years as a Ford Dealership on the 10th of March 2012 with the Ford Motor Company at a celebration event in Las Vegas.
McIntyre Bros Ltd is now the proud Agent for Honda, Mazda and Ford Vehicles in addition to being the Agent for Yamaha Outboards, Honda Generators and Agricultural Power Products and Accessories.
The company’s life long slogan “We service what we sell” aptly describes some of their key success factors: quality products and a continued investment in training which has given the company the proud distinction of having a Honda Master Technician on its team.
