Overdue Update

One of my most recent posts (although it certainly wasn't recent time-wise) mentioned that I was trying to go to Europe for hockey-related work.

Some of you may or may not be aware, but I am already here in Europe...Bern, Switzerland to be exact.

We have just concluded the IIHF World Congress, and have also been watching the IIHF World Championships.

I attended the conference as a delegate of India, and hope that what has transpired will help India and Asian hockey grow!

That will be my only report regarding the IIHF World Congress. The next plan is to attend some IIHF Development Camps in Finland in July.

In the meantime, there will be some final posts regarding Indian hockey in the coming weeks, as well as more pictures (and videos?) as I have an opportunity to do so.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, comments, concerns or ideas.

I still check my email regularly.
