Warm -up! To honour yesterdays good host, Alexey and the sportscomittee,
we started at the city administration house and ran 3 km. to our official

Our finish was near the the town Golismanova where we were invited to stay
as the guests of the town.
As it happens there is tomorrow and the next day a regional sportsfestival
The main sport of the competitions is the games of "Gorotki".
It is a traditional russian sport wich has seen new popularity the last 10
The aim of the game is to hit small figures of wood by throwing a heavy
tree log in two rounds - 8 meter target and 12 meter target.
The target figure are carefully constructed by small wood cubes by the
team - which the same team then try to destroy! (If you consider the
russian history I think you will understand the ironic symbolics!)
Before start tomorrow we are invited to attend the opening ceremony.
It shall be interesting :-)
