"For the love of the amateur pool club that I co-founded 11 years ago when Makati Pool Players Association (MAPPA) was established with Lito Vice de Castro as the founding President then myself as the Vice President. In 2009 the leadership of the pool club was passed on to me that gave me 5 years in the club presidency then it never stop from there giving the amateur pool community the best it can for our beloved sport. Kudos to all succeeding MAPPA Presidents for contributing their great efforts to make MAPPA the best the biggest amateur pool club in the country today. Credit goes to Eric 'Teod' Salud, Damien Warren, Stanley Salazar and to the current MAPPA President the one the only " Arvin Arceo " who stood by my side as my Vice President for many years until he finally accepted to take the Presidency this year 2019." said Jesse Gonzales Cambosa Sr. who is also the director of the Billiards Sports Confederation of the Philippines (BSCP) under the leadership of long-time billiards patron sportsman/businessman Aristeo ?Putch?
