WELCOMING WORDS

JORGE CAMPDEPADROS | President of the South American Confederation of Bridge.

Dear friends:

After this pandemic that took us away from the bridge tables for a long time, it is now time to meet again and enjoy our sport as we always did. And what better than to do it in Cali, where the surroundings of the Country Club give us an excellent framework for this event. Added to the cordiality of the Colombian people, we will not find a better place for this event.

A warm welcome to all participants and I am sure we will enjoy a wonderful week.

A big hug for everyone.

ELSA DE CASTILLO | President of the Bridge Committee of the Club Campestre de Cali.

It is an honor for me to chair this committee and have you as a special guest in my city and Club. Together with the support staff of the C.C.C. we have begun organizing and preparing what will be a great event. For those of you who know me and have attended events in CALI before, I can't wait to see and hug you all again. We have a wonderful event planned with festive parties, delicious food and dancing that will be second to none. To those who I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, be sure to "buckle up" as an exciting program awaits. See you soon.

GIANARRIGO RONA | President World Bridge Federation.

Dear Bridge Friends, It is my great pleasure to offer both on behalf of the World Bridge Federation and personally my greetings to all the participants in the LXX Sudamericano de Bridge. I wish to express my gratitude to the CSB and Cali- Colombia who invited me, and are giving me an opportunity to enjoy, once again, this great event. I am sure that this event will be, as for the previous editions, a great success rewarding the excellent work done by them with passion and dedication. After more than two years of forced absence, due to the pandemic, your participation here gives you the opportunity to live again a great bridge event in a very convivial and enjoyable atmosphere of friendship. You will share your passion and enthusiasm, proving once again that bridge players can meet at the table in peace despite the dramatic and turbulent times we live in. Bridge for Peace is our motto and more than ever here in Cali in order to defeat hatred, we play the Card of Peace and are proud of it. Looking forward to meeting you in Cali, Un abbraccio Gianarrigo Rona
