After long wait, and I see coming, I start to feel joy in the streets, music, festive atmosphere and, of course, the illusion of a parade: Smuggler.
So we only halfway, that will lead us to feel the excitement of our input. I remember a phrase once told me my friend Sergio, one that helps me a lot on hard momen¬tos, saying “I did not tell you that ca¬mino easy, but it will be worth it,” those are the words that motivate me and make me climb that illusion that I den¬tro to proudly represent nues¬tras Moors and Christian in a very special year for our troupe.
In the distance, six years ago, he started a dream I never imagined it could reali¬zar: one night, dinner, friends, an embassy of them “Carmens”, was the catalyst for everything. It was an end dinner party at the Embassy of 2010, of course, I got the last one, there began to be cooked all the friends started talking about the possibility of submit to Captain in 2016, I mentioned that to me would be a dream, but it was very complicated. That day, they managed to spark the illusion that I have, and I saw in that mo¬mento, with the support of my friends and my squad smuggling, could be performed. There was only one but the most important fal¬taba support and at the same time the most difficult and the most complicated, my wife Stephanie; cost thing, but as always, grateful to my friends because they got it, such is the empe¬ño who put that motivated her even more to accompany as well as office and presented as the com¬parsa Tro First, with the help of bandoliers and support of his squad Tempranillo.
Time and fate have drawn my way as festive, I always teni¬do, where I’ve been, the Con¬trabandista spirit, my father was already, I went and I and my brother was. Gra¬cias “Chinchi” for the opportunity you gave me to know our squad Smuggling and thus have the pleasure of enjoying, after many years, getting back in Contra¬bandista input all three together, it is now no longer a dream is becoming a reality.
I could not forget about it has been and will be “My Captain,” Alfredo Reig; grateful for the support, advice and enthusiasm that transmit me; is an honor and a pleasure reci¬bir your hands the baton as Captain.
After tell you how I got to this position I want to say that I already feel, desire and look impacien¬cia, while with nerviosis¬mo, the August holidays, the Friday 26, in which we enjoy in the streets of Ontinyent all the work, effort, sacrifice and responsibility of a com¬parsa, ours, that ontinyentins and visitors also enjoy our joy and pasodobles in the Inbox of the best parties of Moors and Christians.
Wrapped in so much hope and feeling, I want to sincerely thank all the people who have given me their support, their time and their complicity in our Smuggler Captaincy falls short of our Moors and Christians.
