The next Suples International Training & Competition Wrestling Tour is scheduled for August 4-17th, 2012. We have been personally invited to train & compete (8 days) with one of the top ranked Youth Wrestling Clubs in the World; Sports Club Dimitrovgrad in Dimitrovgrad, Bulgaria.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimitrovgrad,_Bulgaria
Next our training takes us to the Bulgarian Marine or Summer Capital at Varna, Bulgaria on the beautiful Black Sea Coast for rest & recovery time (approximately August 13, 2012) before heading to Istanbul, Turkey (August 14-15, 2012) for two days in Western Asia; the ancient seat of the powerful Ottoman Empire.
Finally we have been invited to exclusively train with the German Junior National Team in either Munich or Frankfurt, Germany (which is still pending) before heading home on Saturday, August 17th, 2012.
We are limited to 25 wrestlers on this tour, but parents can be added & are welcome to join us in cementing lasting memories with their kids. The total Training & Competition Tour cost is $3,000 per person; which includes Airfare, Lodging & Meals. The first Deadline for the initial, non-refundable Deposit of $1,600 is due by April 25, 2012, with the remaining balance due in mid-July, 2012. It is critical to purchase all Airline Tickets, make & coordinate our Reservations prior to May 1st, 2012; as that marks the beginning of the International Tourist Seasons in those Regions.
Finally, for those who do not currently have an International Passport; it is important to recognize that normal processing takes 5-6 weeks after the initial Application is mailed & received at the Regional or National Passport Processing Center here in the United States. The Passport is valid for ten years, & normally costs $100.00 for the Passport, $25.00 for Department fee’s, & about $15.00 for the Passport Photo. In the event you find yourself short on time, the Passport can be “expedited” for an additional fee of $60.00, & has a guaranteed turnaround time of 2 weeks from time the Application is mailed & is received at the Regional Processing Center.
As we secure our Tickets & Reservations on or about April 25, 2012; a more precise itinerary can be presented. Reservation requests will be accepted on a first come, first served basis; after which we will assemble a “stand-by” list if additional openings become available.
