From the Trinidad & Tobago Express, we learn that a West Indies Blind Cricket Council has been launched.
Speaking during the launch at the Pommarine Hotel on the Barbados south coast, Committee Head Damion McClean said the council's mains goals this year would be the staging of the inaugural Caribbean Blind Cricket Championship in July in Barbados and sending a West Indies team to the Blind World Cup in South Africa in December.
"We need sponsorship and support. I'm calling on corporate Caribbean. We now speak of integration, CSME and free movement," McClean said.
Of all the burdens on this earth, being blind must be one of the most difficult. It seems to me that this is one project where I wouldn't mind the government giving some of my tax money. May God bless the work of Mr. McClean and his friends.
