(MIAMI, FL - October 1, 2010) Due to the severe inclement weather system that has recently affected Jamaica and with another system forecast to hit the island next week the decision was taken to postpone next weekend's events, scheduled to take place at Half Moon Resort, Montego Bay.
"We are mindful of the acute impact these rains have had on many lives on the island and wish the people of Jamaica a safe, healthy and speedy recovery." Douglas Gordon, Editor in Chief, Ocean Style.
