Slow Start To Fishing Tournament Registration
The Tenth Annual Fishing Tournament "Cosme Alberto Martínez Magaña" is scheduled for May 17, and is considered one of the best of the Yucatan peninsula. Only ten boats have registered, said Isaac Sulu Martinez, the Director of Tourism, adding that last year there were 114 entries, and many of them registered on the last day. He said it has become customary for them to register on the last day. The cost is 4500 pesos until the 15th when it increases to 5500 pesos. The cash prizes total nearly a million pesos, in addition to the vehicle, and it is hoped that more vehicles may be added to the awards. Many of the competing captains and crews arrive for the tournament just before the Captain's dinner, which is held the evening before the event, where they register.  Source: Carlos Gasca/Quequi

Esta Noche hubo un conato de incendio en Angelos, el cual fue sofocado gracias a la oportuna intervención de todos los vecinos que acudieron con sus Extinguidores a sofocar el fuego, afortunadamente no paso a mayores.
 Tonight there was a small fire in Angelos, which was put out by the timely intervention of all the neighbors who came with their extinguishers to put out the fire, fortunately nothing major happened.

We had a wonderful Mother's day dinner at Iguana's of a capon with cheeses and sauces that was wonderful with,tasty potatoes, and the mousse for dessert is always my favorite. We enjoyed John Cain's music & the amazing Anna joined in for some vocals that made the evening extra special. It was a lovely night weather wise as well..with great service and fine company.~wc
