I'm thinking we can organize a drive, award a badge to "Ball Boy Project" participants, and make a thing out of this.
Paul Hobart, thanks for the idea. Let's run with it.
Couple of things that needs to be worked out.
1. Shipping logistics - costs of shipping to India. We need to look at options for this. The US consulate here regularly transports stuff for itself from US to Calcutta. I will talk to them and see if they can help us in shipping it free as a part of "Project Ballboy". The other possibility is for our club to pick up the shipping charges.
2. Customs - We should be able to get around any customs charges, if they are designated as donations from a US initiative for upliftment of game in India etc. etc.
3. Management - If we give the clubs away to the ball-boys they might sell it for food :( This process needs to be managed and I think and RCGC could manage the process of storing, monitoring and managing the distribution. I will talk to them.
