Kapo sale (The Hall Master)
The hall master is in charge of the Carnival’s organisation, but not just in the hall (sala), where dance events during the evenings take place, as his title suggests. He is responsible for maintaining order and discipline in general, and he ensures that the Carnival events proceed on time and as planned. The role of hall master is assigned by his carnival group (pokladarsko društvo), which consists of 100-150 members, and whose duty it is to obey, help and respect their ‘master’. The role is usually fulfilled by an elderly man, and it is a function for life, or until the master himself asks for a successor to replace him.
