Active Day-off of Active Players
After the third playing day organizers of the super tournament decided to give participants some rest to gain strength for the remaining four rounds. But the day-off in the “North Urals Cup” means the active leisure.
During the day all participants joined the Russian tradition to throw coins into the water for the possibility to come back to the place they like. Now coins from eight different countries were added to the river Turya. And the girls were glad that it will let them come to the hospitable Ural land again.
A bit later all participants and guests were invited to the banquet to the restaurant “Yasa” where real fun began. The table full of food, karaoke, and disco were prepared. Even guests from far India and China did not sit aside and actively participated in the friendly festival.
Xu Yuhua even had to taste Russian vodka. Antoaneta Stefanova said the last toast, “All participants thank the organizers for this wonderful tournament”.
