  Welcome to Club Tortuga

Dr. Victor Zavala, Chairman of the Asociacion de Mexican Salvavidas (AMS), also known as the Mexican Lifeguard Association (MLA), has recently announced the First National Meeting of Mexican Lifeguards, in order to establish a constitution and design a national structure for state representation.

This meeting will take place in Galveston, Texas, in conjunction with the Fall USLA - National Meeting, this November 2004. Its success will be dependent on the availability of all Mexican regional lifeguard representatives to make that location on those dates.
