    Default To Be Or Not To Be?

    Hi guys, I just recently come back to sydney after 6 years living in china, b4 leaving china, a badminton coach(former chinese national team player) asked me to organise a tour for him to visit australia, i.e. i pay his airfares, accomodation, and maybe let him make a few extra bucks during his staying in sydney. in return he can coach students here, he can stay in aus for 3 months (touch down visa)

    i dont really what to do now, as it seems to be very hard to organise it for him, i can pay his airfares no problems, but getting people enrolling his class is really hard... should i just tell him that it is mission impossible?

    tell me what you guys think, thanks !

    You're in Melbourne and blackfeather is in Sydney so it is unlikely he'll come to Melbourne.

    i dont know man, if its in a group it might be a lot cheaper, he charges only 100 yuan (100/6=16 aus dollar) an hour back in china when a guy like him with national team background should be charging like at least 150 an hour (200/hour should be the standard rate) , i guess its gonna be like $25 dollar an hour, plus the court booking fee, if there are a few people interested, then its gonna be $10 each?

    he doesnt speak english well, so i will be the interpretor, free of charge, so you get one assitant trainer for free as well.. hehe..

    he is coming to sydney for fun, and i am not into making money, so the rate is cheap, i hope to get enough people enrolled, thanks!

    I think Olympic Park is the best location. Best time for me would be weekday evenings or Sunday/Monday days. I'd like to do 2-3 sessions of 1 hr, solo at the moment unless I find others interested.
