I have to agree that we cannot and should not ban anyone who has a different opinion, unless they become rude etc.

Doug has been around a long time and I do understand his frustrations, in the same way I can also appreciate your optimism.

I sit in the middle just pray!

Hi All
The following is an email from an owner in another resort being built in South Caicos.This ATM news is very interesting based on the timing.It makes me think this may be in anticipation of the airport expansion news and the ramp up of our resort construction.There will be an influx of workers, and,as a  result in more commerce.
Also I wanted you to experience a view from someone else besides me.Mark and his wife spent a lot of time researching investing in Provo,but fell in love with South Caicos,and invested there instead.
I have enjoyed comparing notes with Mark,and seeing things from his perspective.It helps me know its just not me who enjoys and looks forward to the growth in South. I have been accused of being partial, which I guess I'am,but for good reason.
Chuck



Morning Chuck



I thought I'd pass along a small tidbit of news I read in the T&C Sun yesterday. I check out the T&C news about once a week to try and keep up with things, especially with the election approaching in November.

The news was that ScotiaBank has put an ATM on South, as well as on North Caicos. Not exactly earth shattering but it is a small step forward, especially for the relatively small population on South, at the moment that is. It will certainly be convenient for us on our longer stays on the island.

Maybe one can get too overly excited about a simple ATM but it may also represent the tip of the iceberg in services and facility improvements that will now start to show up. Keep in mind Provo was much like South a mere 35 years ago back in the mid 70's.

Maybe one day we'll sit around pool side and reminisce about the "good old days" on South before the place went crazy..........

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Cheers,
Mark

Chuck

Hang on in there - I'm sure the majority of us all appreciate your input on the Forum.  We are all frustrated by the delays - I too invested in 2005,  it's just that Doug's frustration is LOUD.  I don't think anyone should be blocked unless their posts get unduly offensive, posts lead to discussion and at least keeps the issue alive.
I am a property lawyer, recently retired and went into the contract with eyes wide open - high risk but high yields IF it comes good.  If I thought I could get my deposit back without spending as much again, then of course I would by now have pursued that track.
I am optimistic however.  Even though its taking its time, the development continues to progress and the airport issue is being addressed.  The worst news would be that the developers have gone through so any other news is good news, even news of the new ferry service to South C and the new ATM - all good stuff.

Keep posting Chuck

Great that we have a property lawyer onboard, nice to get confirmation that we are where we are and can only sit and wait - although as said, things are looking a little more positive now.

My kind agent, who advised that it may be too early to chase anyone on the tender situation, as provided this link;

I have been trying to find out via the internet whether the tendering process has been completed and the contract awarded - I have even emailed the local paper !! However, no information seems to be forthcoming from these sources - anyone got any idea whether the contract was awarded ?

Vivienne,

the last I heard was that investors were completing their final due diligence, that was a few weeks ago and I have heard nothing since. I have emailed my agent though so awaiting response. On another topic thread (I wish there was just one thread because its easy to miss comments.) in case you haven't seen it, I did write that there are only a couple of workers at the resort and they haven't been paid for a few months. It looks as though they are not going to finish the resort until the airport is underway.

Thanks Chris.   Not good to hear the site workers are not being paid - whether the contractors are waiting for the airport or not, it is concerning that they are not paying their way.

The South Caicos Airport is a future capital priority but could be a few years off. Unless private funding comes.

According to my agent the contract for the airport is at present being passed around various lawyers in different countries and should have been signed by now. He was hopeful that it would be very soon
