Thank you Eugene! Here is the picture of our team at closing: USA team.  The tournaments were well organized but several important issues with the arbiters and pairings I would like to discuss on the next PanAm GA meeting.
Hello again,

I would like to add few more pieces of information regarding the 1st women championship, as I am both immensely proud and happy
that it took place - something I was losing hope that would actually happen!

Firstly, before the beginning of the tournament, several players including myself, were interviewed by the Curacao television. Here is a copy of this interview that has been originally published on pamdcc.com website:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=11&v=-QAtMVpZmEI

Next, I would like to thank few sister sites that wrote words of congratulations to the winners and organizers:

The last round of applause goes to Christine - ICAONA's own diligent photography master who captured a lot of moments from the Pan Am Championship on ICAONA"s facebook page, including my winning speech in which I tried to give credit to everyone who made this historical championship happened: https://www.facebook.com/Interna....9272725. Thanks, Christine!
