Excellente! You know what would be great? Visiting Puerto Rico during the Christmas season, trying coquito and some of those killer snacks Harold told us about, visiting a few pool rooms, and spectating at one of the Federation's tournaments. Got to do it sometime. I wonder whether the FPB will have a Spanish-language website.--D.M.

It was very hard work. Took me about 6 months between the first emails with the WPA, and getting all the paperwork done. I drafted 6 Constitutions and By-laws before getting it almost done. The last review will be completed by the Players and members themselves!

Now, Im working with the IRS for the Employer Identification Number and trying to get sponsors for one of our Players to attend Cardiff.

Thanks Wendy for your support!

Leviathan:

I have separated a domain name (www.puertoricobilliards.com) at the web. The website could possibly be dual-languange (Spanish and English). Right now I just have a free website in Spanish at http://www.geocities.com/juegabillar/index.html

The CPB is planning a Tour between the 15 member countries. Could start in Aruba in October of this year, with a stop in Puerto Rico, possibly November or December. Will have to work on that these coming months. We just started so we need to obtain sponsorships before doing the stop.

I'll let everyone know what goes on. These days my time is very limited but I'm trying to have fun doing this. Not easy but I don't mind the work. Been there, done that before (Past President and VP for 7 years of a Federal Labor Organization in Puerto Rico).
