Néstor Martínez Rivero and Milagros “Milly” Marquina are both from Puerto Rico but they are associated with different groups of cockpits.
Milagros “Milly” Marquina reached out last year to ask for our support to Dia Mundial del Gallero Y Galleras (World Day of Cockfighters and Cockpits) 10 de Julio (Every 10th of July).
It was well before 10 July 2011 which happened to be the second Sunday of July 2011.
Right away, events on social network were created as our support for this idea.
A while later, Néstor Martínez Rivero saw our events and mentioned that they already celebrated Dia del Galleros Y Galleras (Day of Cockfighters and Cockpits) and theirs was every 30th of May.
