Ok guys, I need some help and it may well be a pretty interesting and rewarding thing to do.
The Bulgarian Cricket Federation have recently comeback from Lords after the meeting of European cricket organisations.
This time next year Bulgaria will be an Affiliate country.
Unlike a number of other organisations, they dont want money or equipment. Quite frankly the lack of money-grubbing is admirable.
They have approached me to provide what they do want, and that is coaching.
I have said I will try and do 2 things. Provide 2-3 teams (one of which will be CW) for an International 6s event in Sofia early next summer and to try and bring a couple of guys over to help run a coaching camp this summer.
Qualified is preferable but certainly isnt important (as Im not).
Its a chance to experience Sofia (it would be voluntary but I should be able to sort out accommodation) and help prepare the national team for the Euro Champs and help inexperienced guys learn the game.
They are desperate for the input of knowledge and I feel bad if I know I can help such passionate people and I dont.
So these are my requests.
a) A couple of guys get a cheap flight over and help run a coaching clink (a plus is the beer is dirt cheap)
b) We get a 6s team together and then write about the experience.
This is a brief note as Im going out right now. Ill add more later
