Dear members of the USA Deaf Sports Federation,
It is my pleasure to send you my message as president of PANAMDES. First, I would like to thank the host city of Washington, D.C. for accepting to organize the Regional Volleyball Qualification Tournament for men and women from June 30 to July 4, 2016 for the 23rd Deaflympics held in Turkey in 2017.
I would also like to wish all the best to the volleyball players in their qualification competitions. I know that some of you have always dreamed of participating in the Great Games (Deaflympics 2017). Furthermore, I believe that all the athletes of each member country of PANAMDES have worked very hard during their trainings in order to make it to the qualification tournament.
Again, I join all the member countries of PANAMDES to wish good luck and all the best to the athletes.
