Last Minute Preparations

Posted on Apr 16, 2016 in Bulgaria

One more day until departure. It’s an 18 hour trip from Portland to Sofia Bulgaria. We had our last club practice Thursday night focusing on Greco and some team members will be at the USM clinic today fine tuning their freestyle with coaches Mike, Jon, Julio and the rest of the Huskies team.

It’s hard to believe the trip is here already. The practically endless number of details all seem to be buttoned up. We have our trip photographer (Cody Craig) and videographer (Dave Elowitch). Everyone is packing gear to trade with the wrestlers they meet. I know a few of the kids have been practicing their Bulgarian conversation with apps on their phones.

Here’s a nice send off article from the Portland Press Herald.
