This website is owned and operated by Norm (Norman Peter Gonsalves). I currently live in California, USA, but previously lived in Kildonan (Corentyne, Berbice) and Albouystown (Georgetown), Guyana. I attended Queen's College from 1968 - 1976 and St Petersburg Tech University, in St Petersburg, Russia from 1977 - 1984. I was a Lecturer in the Faculty of Technology at the University of Guyana from 1984 to 1989, and am now a Registered Civil Engineer in California.
My practical cricket experience in Guyana was limited to school cricket (Wight Cup and the odd Nortcote Cup match), third division club cricket, beach cricket and softball pick-up ("scrubby") matches. I also played league cricket in the San Francisco in California, which is about the level of first to second division cricket in Guyana.
My motivation for running this website is to give back something to my native country for a most enjoyable childhood and early adulthood, of which cricket was a big part. Through cricket I learned a great deal about all Guyanese - what motivates us, our ideals, views, shortcomings, needs, etc - which in turn helped me to decide on my future career as a civil engineer.
