 Letter From the Professor - May 29, 2008

Amazing turn out in Cyprus, Barcelona is Next
The CAP and PAP teams have returned from Cyprus and are getting caught up on all the work that piled up in our absence. Most of us are exhausted and sunburned but believe me it was all worth it. We had a large number of affiliates from around the world (over 300) and the usual industry reps join us on the beach in Limassol. Everything went brilliantly and we had some of the best parties ever staged at CAP Spring Break. This week photos are being uploaded and reports being written but to get the full effect you just had to be there. I can’t wait until CAP Spring Break 2009 to see how we top this one. Luckily we have a huge event to tide us over and that’s CAP Euro Barcelona. Practice your Spanish now and prepare for our fall fiesta Ole´e

Don’t Forget to join the Pimp Your Office Contest at AP
Our sister community “Pimp Your Office Space” contest is really heating up and it’s time for you to join in and possibly strike it rich. AP will be giving away thousands in cash to two lucky affiliates; one for the “Pimpest” Office Space and one for the Worst Office Space. Entry is easy; submit a picture of your office to either category and keep your fingers crossed. The Rules. Check out the current entries: Pimpest Office Messiest Office.

Lyndsay Harmon Update
I spoke with the Captain yesterday and we have some great news and some not so great news to share about Lyndsay. First for the great news. CAP Members have so far raised over $4000 in donations for Lyndsay and her family. We can all be proud of what’s been accomplished and The Captain has been a real god send to this family. Keep up the support it IS making a difference in this young woman’s life. Ok now for some not so great news, as you may have read in a new thread by the Captainette, Lyndsay has been placed back in ICU at Vanderbilt Medical Center. She was recently moved to a rehab center, but apparently she wasn’t ready for that transition. Her fight is an uphill battle even at this stage. Back to the good news, I spoke with Patty this morning and Lyndsay has been stabilized and the physicians are optimistic now about her recovery. We will keep you posted on Lyndsay’s progress each week until she finally returns home. If you can lend a hand, a prayer or even a few lines of encouragement please join us here.

 Manager's Corner

ClaireClaire Leighton, Affiliate Club

I have been working for since its launch last year. As well as managing the affiliates, I also take care of the conferences and our entire PR.

As with any company, the job role is varied and lets me speak to lots of different people in all countries around the world. I love the travelling and have been fortunate enough to travel to all the conferences since last October, including CAC Macau and PubCon in Vegas.

I have built so many relationships within the industry over the last few years I have been in the gaming industry, including those with affiliates, and those with other influential people such as IGaming and CAP.

I will be attending CAP Spring Break and the PokerConference (where we will be exhibiting) so make sure you come and find me; those who know me and those who don’t – I love meeting new people and building new relationships.

This industry is definitely like home for me. I can’t see myself back in a 9 - 5 office; Bring on the long hours, travelling away from home and the socializing! How could you not love it?!
