Jaltemba Cup Charity Golf Tournament

When most golfers on the Nayarit Coast think of the Jaltemba Cup, they think of an extremely competitive golf tournament that pits golfers from one community against the other in an annual classic that takes place at the El Monteon Field of Dreams nine hole golf course.  

This year, however, the Jaltemba Cup means a great deal more to the thousand students that attend La Peñita de Jaltemba's Plan de Ayala Secondaria School as the Jaltemba Cup organizers presented an entire computer lab to the school.

"We've donated computers to the school in the past because students attend there from Lo de Marcos all the way up to Chacala," said Jaltemba Cup chair Larry Baron. "This year, two of the founders of the Jaltemba Cup, Bill and Dorothy Bell, used the funds to put together an entire computer lab for the children of our communities."

The Bells met with school officials and got their wish list of 10 computers, printers, scanner/fax, computer overhead projector and screen. This was in addition to the four computers that the Jaltemba Cup had already bought the school.

"When we traveled to Guadalajara to buy the equipment, we realized that the budget just couldn't handle all of their needs," Dorothy said.  "My husband Bill, who has made a hobby of rebuilding computers, decided to buy the computer components and build the computers in order to afford all of the equipment for the computer lab."

"For over two weeks we had computer parts all over the house."

The school director, Eduardo Lopez, told the Jaltemba Cup organizers and golfers that the donation was "extremely important" as they had only six computers for over 1000 students who attend the school in two shifts. "Computers are a important educational tool and thanks to the Jaltemba Cup, our students have an opportunity to learn vital skills."
 
"When you see all of these children's faces light up, it is truly wonderful to behold.  You know that by giving just a little hand, you could be making a huge difference in their lives," Bill Bell said.

The Jaltemba Cup was started six years ago to allow golfers from Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta to compete in a fun and competitive manner, while at the same time raising funds for computers in the school system. It now has over 30 teams representing communities throughout Nayarit and Jalisco playing.

This year's Jaltemba Cup takes place at the Field of Dreams – Campo de Enseueño - Golf Course in El Monteon on January 28 and 29th.
