JCI Social Day Sports Event
On May 29th, Ivan Lazar and Rune Lind had put together plans for a social/active day that was to take place in Frederiksberg Have. The theme of the day was to get active, have fun and enjoy some wholesome Danish food at a nearby restaurant. The team met up in Frederiksberg Have after a few minutes of not being able to find each other (the park can be big judging by Danish standards). After the ritual of greeting, hugging and saying hello, we proceeded to create a playing field for dodgeball and two teams two battle it out for supremacy in JCI Copenhagen International. Needless to say, Dhushyanthini really wanted to win, so she promised ice cream to her entire team if they won the final match, which they won as a courtesy of the other team (read: we let them win). They still haven’t received their ice cream, but their feat of strength is still a testament to their skills.
Jeppe had to go out with an injury and took part from the side instead. The teams then began playing Frisbee, a sport that needs a little more practice judging by the way the discs were thrown. Last activity before heading over to the restaurant was Softball, which led to a lot of confusion as nobody really agreed on the rules. Softball is a very good game for team building or team destroying, if that is what you want. Ivan and Edward were unstoppable in the field, catching almost every ball they laid their eyes on. The stakes were high and the fun was tangible.
The active day was over and we headed for one of the small gardens close by. We had reserved a table at Krøgers Have, which is a typical Danish restaurant with traditional food and atmosphere. Some of us sampled their “stegt flæsk med persillesovs” – a true Danish classic dish – while others had either burger or other traditional dishes. Beers, water and high spirits were all around and it was a great way to end a fun and different JCI day.
