Message from the Chairman of CANOC

Greetings from the Chairman

On behalf of the Executive Council of CANOC, I would like to wish our entire Membership all the very best for 2009.

The year 2009 will be a historic one for our Association in that we will see the realization of the Inaugural Caribbean Games.  For many of us the staging of these Games will be a dream come true for the regional Olympic movement and again I plead for your full support.  We are hoping that you will make every effort to ensure the best competitors from you country will be available to compete at our Games.  The success of the inaugural event will ensure the longevity of the Caribbean Games.

I look forward to seeing you in Curacao later this week and trust you are making a special effort to attend what will be another very important Assembly.

Again, I wish you all a productive and successful 2009.
