Hi Dean,

Good to see that the Bulgarian greenkeepers are doing well at last. I was on a tour to Czech Repulic and was responible for the development of training in Bulgaria of all greenkeepers with the help of my former boss Krassimir Guergov who is now leading the way in the golf developments in the Black Sea.

When I was in the Czech Republic I met Pirjo Hotti who was kind and gave me and my colleague excellent advice and reassurance. So, the hard work was done well before Arne came on the scene.
