For those Latin American brothers and sisters here at the board, the Pan American 9 Ball Championships will be held in Curaçao (Netherlands Antilles) from June 3rd through the 6th. This is the 6th Pan-American 9-Ball Championship for Men and the 3rd Pan-American 9-Ball Championships for Women.

The Pan-American Championships is the most important and prestigious 9 Ball event in this area that groups seventeen (17) Caribbean, Central and South American Countries.

This event is sanctioned by the World-Pool Billiard Association and qualifies eight (8) male and two (2) female players to represent their countries during the
World Pool Championships to be held this year in Taipei, Taiwan on July 10-18, 2004 and the Womens World Pool Championships to be held this year in Johannesburg, South Africa in July 2004.

The following countries have confirmed participation in the event: Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, Netherlands Antilles, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela.

Ernesto Dominguez, Morro Paez, Ditto Acosta, Jason Cruz, Alan Rolon, and Jorge Llanos are among the players this year.

Some of you know these players, and I'm looking forward to watching the outcome of the tournament. For more information you may want to visit the Curacao Federation website at www.febiko.com (http://www.febiko.com)

Just thought some CCB'er would like to know about this tournament.
