"The centre itself has magnificent facilities, including wonderful spectator viewing, and the organising committee is already hard at work. I am sure that the 42nd QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup in Caracas will continue our great tradition and enhance the reputation of the event as the best annual tournament in the world."
