Poduga Club 25!

I had very nice opportunity to present in Poduga Club 25 years anniversary event, January 2.-5.
They had traditional tournament (The Championship of Arkhangelsk region, games are avaiable to see here: http://5stones.pcriot.com/rif/games.php?gameid=67447 )
Also they had traditional new year dramatic play (fairytale), what was really nicely made (you can check it from vkontakte.ru, if you have account in there)

As I told, New Year tournament, celebrations and fairytale dramatic play are traditional every year, but this year everything was more festive with more orations and lot of guests because of 25 years jubilee.
Poduga renju community (what consists also players from other places of local aria in Arkhangelsk region) is very nice example of big and very friendly family. Irina Metreveli is like second mother of hundreds of previous and current renju students. They have very friendly atmosphere in their club, but also working hard with renju and older players help younger to study.
Nowadays there are working some more coaches except Irina – Mikhail Mikriukov, Oksana Sorokina, Elena Lebedeva.

They also published list of 25 players, gathered most of points (points are given for titles of renju, but not only, it is possible to earn points for promoting renju, for example like Kira Lashko and Aleksandra Sumarokova did in Moscow - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=955624304452830&set=ms.c.eJwtycENADEIA7CNThBIIPsvVlW9p2WTQkXOrGB8vu6KbmIrfq~%3BvZ~%3BQzhcx0ic~_amFkadQCHMBAx.bps.t.100004990091828&type=3&theater)

Many Poduga Club players have grown up, graduated in different Russian universities, working in different places in Russia and unfortunately dont have much time for renju any more, but still have good contact with Poduga Club and Irina Metreveli.

We wish to Irina and whole club to continue many active years !

Friendly, Ants
