The current Miss Guyana-Universe, Miss Odessa Phillips

The Miss Guyana Universe 2005 pageant, which was twice postponed as a result of the floods, is now scheduled to take off on April 3 at the National Cultural Centre.

The new queen will then have just over seven weeks to prepare for the Miss Universe Pageant which is billed for May 30 in Bangkok, and this will include training, putting together a wardrobe and travelling to Thailand for the pageant.

Franchise holders in the various countries are expected to submit the names of the Miss Universe contestants by April to the Miss Universe committee.

Odinga Lumumba, franchise holder for the Miss Guyana Universe pageant, told Stabroek News on Tuesday that the pageant would definitely be held in April despite the many postponements.

According to Lumumba, the beauties will showcase their swimsuits on March 27, (Easter Sunday) at the Blairmont Community Centre Ground.

"We are looking at broadcasting and exposing the pageant in various communities which we think lack entertainment," said Lumumba.

Lumumba also said that the swimsuit competition is going to Blairmont so that interested persons would have a chance to see what the pageant is all about and to decide whether or not they want to compete the following year.

The delegates have already travelled to Bartica, Linden and Anna Regina.

Lumumba said the girls are still undergoing intense training with a private dance instructor and they are attending workout sessions at the Studio 2000 gym.

The delegates completed the live 'Question and Answer' segment of the pageant in the studio of NCN 11 in December last year.

Those vying for the crown are Bibi Azeez, Asha Pieters, Nadia Chung, Sonjie Marslowe, Emily Perreira, Mandy Charles, Miranda Todd, Alison Henry, Gillian Murray, Allison Isaacs, Wendy Walcott, Candacie Franklin, Tatum Reis, Margaret Khanhailall, Chelan Yhap, Keen Bowen, Ayanna Byron, Melesa Archer and Sharon Gilbert.

Slinger Francisco 'The Mighty Sparrow' from Trinidad is invited as a guest performer on pageant night.

Several scholarships are up for grabs along with other attractive prizes.
