Life of horror The International Labour Organization estimates that 1.2 million children are trafficked each year. The traff icking of children has been internationally recognized as a serious crime that exists in every region worldwide and which often has human rights implications. It is only within the past decade that this practice have risen to international prominence, due to a dramatic increase. Parents are urged to be extremely aware of the dangers of children abducted for human trafficking. This is the biggest human rights issue of our time. Children as young as 9 years old are prostituted as a result of this illicit trade. It has emerged that in most instances young girls are promised false modelling jobs, after which they are kidnapped and forced into a world of drugs and enslavement. We urge parents to be vigilant and keep a watchful eye over their children. Parents need to educate their children to be alert. We would like to point out this is the harsh reality and everyone should be extremely cautious of their children’s whereabouts at all times. The emotional pain are destructive and indescribable.

If you are zealous about pets, take a “paws” and enjoy the array of animal gear at Extreme Pets. Magda du Toit is the new owner of Extreme Pets in Heidelberg. Extreme in every sense of the word. Magda recently took over, and changes and improvements made were pushed to the max. Magda and her team of animal lovers don’t just go the extra mile for their clients, but the extreme extra mile. Magda’s love for animals started at a young age. Why do humans love pets so much? Researchers found that the hormone, oxytocin, spikes in both human and domesticated animal’s brains when a pet is gazing at its owner. Oxytocin is known to play a strong role in triggering feelings of unconditional love and protection when parents and children look into each other’s eyes or embrace. So, the findings suggest that owners love their pets in the same way as family members, and pets return their devoted affection. Your pet can’t wait to cuddle with you. Our pets deserve the best. If you are considering introducing a pet into your child’s life, the advantages are countless. It teaches to love all the times, regardless. It teaches respect and acceptance. Most of all, it teaches responsibility. Many shy away from owning a pet as the general belief is that the accessories you need will come at a price. Extreme Pets caters for first-time pet owners. They offer a starter kit for cats, dogs, and birds. But the terrarium starter kit was mind-blowing. It includes a colorful terrarium, thermometer, bowl and heat pad. Sought after white sunflower seeds are stocked here. They offer twenty-five fish species, hedgehogs, snakes, cats, dogs, spiders, rabbits, hamsters, crickets, and mealworms. Other items stocked are sand sheets for birds, spider tanks, dog- and cat tags, a

bedside mini fish tank, icing covered dog biscuits and a variety of cat and dog foods, and chilies for birds. For dog owners consider the custom-made canvas stretchers and cots which can be dismantled to save space when you take your dog with on holiday. For tree huggers, the environmentally friendly recycled tire bed is a popular option. Opening times: Mon-Fri 08:00-17:30, Sat 08:00-16:00, closed on Sundays. Bring your whole family to see for yourself. Because seeing is believing.

Saad van die saaier What is free sugar Jesus vertel van ‘n man wie goeie saad in Sy land gesaai het, die Een wie die goeie saad, die evangelie van hoop en geloof en van Sy Koninkryk verkondig. Die klem val op die goeie saad. Goeie saad van geestelike verryking, geloof en dat daar ‘n ryke oes, ‘n goeie en voorspoedige toekoms as beloning op Sy arbeid wag. In ander woorde: Hy het sy belegging in ons gemaak, Hy het Sy deel gedoen en ons as die uiteindelike oes maak die hart van die saaier bly. Daar is ‘n verwagting dat ons veel vrug sal dra tot Sy eer. Maar dan kom die opponent, ‘n vyand en wie se doel dit is om die oes te kontamineer deur sy slegte saad, nie in sy eie nie, maar in die goeie tuinier se grond, waarin daar alreeds edele saad gesaai, is te saai. Jesus het gekom om te soek en te red wie verlore is en Sy goeie saad van redding en die belofte van ‘n ewige lewe aan Sy kinders te bring. Maar soos wat die proses van wasdom en geestelike groei vorder, net so ontkiem en groei die saad wat die teenoorgestelde doel het. Ongeloof, twyfel en ‘n neiging tot sonde. Dis belangrik om daarop te let dat die vyand juis onder die beskerming van die nag, die donker sy vernietigingswerk doen. Die nag is ‘n beeld van magteloosheid en weerloosheid. Statistiek bewys dat die grootste getal misdaad snags plaasvind. Dan is die slagoffer meer kwesbaar en minder waaksaam. Dis waarom die Woord sê: Waak en bid dat julle nie in versoeking kom nie. Moenie slaap wanneer jy geestelik wakker moet wees nie. Die dief kom in ‘n oomblik van swakheid. Dan kom uiteindelike oes. In plaas van geloof in God en in Sy Woord ontstaan daar twyfel en ongeloof. Dan maak geloof plek vir die vleeslike gevoel en hoor ons meer en meer die volgende: Ek voel moeg vir die lewe. Ek voel ek misluk. Ek voel ek is nikswerd nie. Ek voel alleen en afgeskryf. Ek voel God het my verlaat. Ek voel ek wil nie meer aangaan nie.

costing our kids?

Betsie en Phillip herderspaar van Simfonéa 079 762 5545. Skakel ons vir gebed en berading. Ek voel ek kan nie bid nie, ek is in ‘n doodloopstraat, ek voel vernederd, ek voel verstoot, ek voel ek kan in geen verhouding staan nie… Nie met ‘n mens en ook nie met God nie… Ek voel ek wil nie meer kerktoe gaan nie. Ek voel ek kan nie meer bid nie. Dan ontwikkel ek ‘n skuldgevoel ens ens. En die saad groei en verwoes my toekomsdrome. In plaas daarvan dat ek in volle geloof en oortuiging sê: Ek weet dat my God leef en sal in elk van my behoeftes voorsien Daarom is dit uiters noodsaaklik dat ons moet let op die voorgeskrewe wapen soos opgeteken in Matt. 12:30: ’en jy moet die Here jou God liefhê uit jou hele hart en uit jou hele siel en uit jou hele verstand en uit jou hele krag. Dit is die eerste gebod!’ Dit word genoem die eerste gebod omdat dit die belangrikste is en val die klem op ‘jou hele’ hart, jou hele verstand jou hele siel en jou hele krag. Nie net ‘n gedeelte daarvan nie. Die land en die oes, ek en jy, moet suiwer wees, nie net in die goeie nie, maar ook in donker tye. Nie net wanneer dit met ons goed gaan nie, maar wanneer ons ook deur die dal van dood skaduwee gaan moet ons lewens getuig van goeie vrug en wasdom. Die Here seën u.

It’s no longer a secret that the clear majority of us are blissfully unaware sugar addicts. Modern conveniences in consumables are great at making life easier in the short term, but what about the long-term implications? A report published in 2009 showcases that food addiction is plausible as “brain pathways that evolved to respond to natural rewards are also activated by addictive drugs. Sugar releases opioids and dopamine and thus might be expected to have addictive potential.” A further report published in 2013 indicates that sugar is as, if not more, desirable than addictive drugs such as cocaine. This research aims to prove that “sugar and sweetness can induce reward and craving that are comparable in magnitude to those induced by addictive drugs”. With these two f indings, it’s hard to believe that as parents we are still largely oblivious to the long-term, damaging effects of over-consuming sugar-dense foods and beverages. So, a sugar tax may be introduced, this will certainly help moderate and potentially reduce the average consumption of free sugars (sugar added to food and drink, as well as sugar found naturally in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates). But it will take a deeper understanding of what we consume to avoid the top health issues South Africans currently face – obesity, diabetes and heart conditions? All directly resulting from amongst other factors, but largely to sugar-dense diets and little to no exercise. Per a statement released by the World Health Organisation, “adults and children need to reduce their daily intake of free sugars to less than 10% of their total energy intake. A further reduction to below 5% or roughly 25 grams (6 teaspoons) per day would provide additional health benefits”. What is a safe recommended daily allowance for sugar? The UK’s Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) have suggested the following: Children aged 4 to 6 should have no more than 19g or five teaspoons of free sugars per day. Children aged 7 to 10 should have no more than 24g or six teaspoons of free sugars per day.

Children aged 11 years and upwards, as well as adults, should have no more than 30g or seven teaspoons of free sugar per day. To illustrate what this means, look at some of the popular beverages our children love, and their approximate sugar contents: 250ml iced tea = 19g or four teaspoons of free sugar; 250ml flavoured drinking yoghurt = 26.8 g or f ive and a half teaspoons of free sugar; 330ml cola = 35g or seven teaspoons of free sugar; 330ml ginger beer = 37g or six and a half teaspoons of free sugar. Overcoming an addiction is by no means an easy feat and the same holds true for sugar dependency. Almost all modern convenience consumables contain added free sugar especially children’s favourites such as cereals, beverages, fast foods and treats. So how do we reduce the excess sugars from our diets? Become aware, understand that food is medicine and always try to ensure that all consumables remain as close as possible to their natural state. If sweetening is required, look at healthier options such as fresh fruit or vegetables. Read labels carefully, not all free or added sugars are labelled as sugars. For example: agave nectar, corn sweetener, dextrose, honey, corn syrup, sucrose, fructose, glucose and molasses. Limit sugar added beverages cited as being responsible for most added sugar in US diets. Try naturally flavouring water or using a SodaStream to make fun, healthier drink options. Their syrups also comprise one-third of the sugar compared to regular sodas. Reduce your family’s super sweet sugar tolerance with a moderated sugar and bolstered wholefood diet. Over time consumables high in sugar will start tasting too sweet as your tolerance returns to its normal natural state. Bake instead of buying treats. Homemade treats will no doubt contain less added and highly synthetic sweeteners, and you can further reduce the sugar content with natural sweeteners like fruits or vegetables. The key to all healthy living is moderation and a balanced diet. This is not to say indulgent foods high in fat and/or sugar can’t be enjoyed, they can, but just not daily.

Bullying in schools is escalating at an alarming rate There is an ongoing disruption of learning and teaching due to bullying and gangsterism countrywide. Learners are encouraged to refrain from such behavior which will prompt law enforcement intervention if the situation does not come to normality. “I commit to conduct unannounced random visits in various schools in Gauteng to combat selling of drugs within school premises. There will be an increase of sector policing during peak hours in schools to ensure the safety of learners. I also challenge parents and all stakeholders to take responsibility, not leaving everything to the police. These are our children, and we must start to practice UBUNTU, where my child is your child. The Patroller movement will also be strengthened by the deployment of more patrollers to act as a force multiplier, to work closely with the School Governing Bodies and Principals to rid schools of drugs and alcohol” said MEC NkosiMalobane. Vuyani Mpofu, Gauteng Education Deputy Director General echoed the words of the MEC, “As education department we strive to create an environment that doesn’t interrupt the academic development of learners.

Erection of cell phone mast questioned Do you know Nono? Dear Lesedi & Nono (Traffic Department with no e-mail and a phone number that has not been answered for the past hour). The pleasures of reinstating a licence. Eleven years in Heidelberg and nothing has changed. I pay my taxes and electricity bill. Phoning all the numbers at the bottom without any satisfaction. As always no service, bad service, personal attacks, politics- Nono you are not suited for this work. I am a resident at 8 Mayflower Ave Bergsig Heidelberg Gauteng. My wife was sick and could not renew her drivers license at the time. After her recovery the following happened. We are married in community of property. The property was bought before we were married and is only in my name. We have ID Books and a marriage license. We were ask to get an affidavit to confirm that we are married. Due to the police’s error, we have to repeat this process. Nono, who is very, very unhelpful, refused to give me her surname upon enquiry.

With reference to the article in REKORD, dated 17 January, 2017, for the erection of a cell phone mast at the NG Kerk Noycedale, I would like to have the following questions answered: Who issued the written consent? Who determined the need for the construction of a tower in this area? Who will be serviced by this tower? Why was there no public participation involved? Are you aware of the objection to the erection of other cell towers in Nigel, as published by another publication in 2016? Although permission/approval may have been sought from council, the erection of the mast at the NG Kerk, was kept very quiet. I wonder if even the residents in Noycedale were aware of it. In the absence of the correct information (consent was issued, but readers/residents do not know by whom) it seems to me as if someone only wants to generate selfish income for personal gain and have no concern/obligation to others’ health or wellbeing. Consumers might be under the impression, specifically perhaps those in Noycedale, that suddenly they will have better cell phone network coverage, but to the contrary, they will have no benefit at all. Especially those who reside even within zero to 400m from the tower. In so far as public participation is concerned, I wish to point out that attempts to remove this from legislation, many objections were received by government, amongst those included, the ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION RESEARCH FOUNDATION OF SOUTH AFRICA, and

individuals such as the Oppenheimers. At this point I wish to draw your attention to a resolution taken by the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality Cellular Masts Policy Item A-Cped (04-2013) CM 01/08/ 2013 City Planning and Economic Development: Oversight Committee Report on the new policy on Cellular Masts, in which was resolved that public participation must be ensured. According to the policy, “The applicant will therefore only have to submit a building plan in terms of the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act 103 of 1977 which is the responsibility of the City Planning Department (Building Control Division) as well as proof that public participation has been undertaken. There has been no evidence of such participation. This concerns everyone in Nigel. Service providers, and those who may stand a chance to gain from the erection of such towers, will try and convince you that it is to your benefit. Scientific research have proved otherwise. Not only in the Republic of South Africa, but globally, but will not tell you about the negative impact of cell phone radiation. Objections to the erection of cell phone towers in residential areas include, amongst others, the health risks to human and fauna and flora. For these reasons, I object to the erection of the cellular mast in Noycedale as reported in the REKORD.

According to her an affidavit is required by law, which she was only willing to show me on the condition that I came to her office. She said that her government constitutes the law. Nono wasted my time by putting me on hold. Trying as I could, there was no problem solved but another created. Now I must travel from Johannesburg, solve the problem, lose time and money. By now I am aggrivated. I was forced to counsel with my lawyer. I do not expect any reaction, due to the fact everybody works like Nono !!!!!

Liefde is die hoogste vorm van omgee en word dikwels verwar met verliefdheid, ‘n neurobiologiese verskynsel. Die konsep van liefde hou baie nou verwant aan die konsep van onvoorwaardelike liefde.

Wat is liefde? Liefde is een van die sterkste emosies wat ons as mense kan ervaar. Maar wat is liefde? Ongelukkig word alle mense nie met dieselfde persepsie van liefde groot nie. Van ons kom uit liefdevolle huise uit wat dit vir ons makliker maak om liefde te wys. Van ons is egter nie so gelukkig nie. Liefde vir hierdie mense kan ‘n onbekende emosie wees, veral wanneer hulle dit moet wys. Hulle persepsie van liefde kan ook baie negatief wees, byvoorbeeld “ek wys vir jou ek is lief vir jou wanneer ek jou beheer”. Maar selfs al het ons nie talle kinder trauma’s nie kan ons persepsie van liefde irrasioneel wees. Liefde moet prakties in jou verhouding ingesit word….dit gaan nie net spontaan gebeur nie. As paartjies mekaar ontmoet dan is dit wonderlik. Wanneer ons verlief is, is alles maklik en ons gee spontaan liefde vir mekaar. Nadat die verlief weg is, kom die liefde in. Dit is persoonlik, diep en wonderlik maar mens moet hard werk daaraan om dit in jou verhouding te hou – veral nadat mens getroud is. Fisiese aanraking Fisiese aanraking is een van die belangrikste elemente in ‘n romantiese verhouding. Persone wat se liefdestaal fisiese aanraking is, het dit veral nodig op ‘n daaglikse basis want “Ek voel jy is lief vir my wanneer jy aan my vat”. Opboudende woorde Woorde is die tweede liefdes taal. Die uitdaging met woorde is dat almal nie ‘n opboudende woordeskat het nie – veral wanneer jy uit ‘n baie kritiese huisgesin kom. In hierdie geval moet jy jou woordeskat verbeter deur uit te kyk vir opboudende woorde en te leer hoe om dit toe te pas. Indien jou maat se liefdestaal woorde is, kan hy/sy jou ook uithelp met watter opboudende woorde vir hulle belangrik is om te hoor. Kwaliteit tyd Vir persone wat kwaliteit tyd as liefdestaal het is jou onverdeelde aandag baie belangrik Kwaliteit tyd beteken om dinge saam te doen en te geniet. Hierdie is tyd sonder selfone en TV waar ons op mekaar kan fokus. Wanneer paartjies nie kwaliteit tyd saam spandeer nie gaan hulle konneksie met mekaar verloor wat die liefde uit jou verhouding uitsuig. Dienste Dienslewering is die vierde liefdestaal: “Ek voel jy is lief vir my wanneer jy vir my iets doen”. Wys vir mekaar hoe lief julle mekaar het. In ‘n verhouding is dit dus belangrik om vir mekaar goedjies te doen – dit is ‘n baie ondersteunende liefdestaal. Die dienste hoef nie groot te wees nie – die kleinste taak kan ‘n groot verskil maak en jou maat geliefd laat voel. Geskenke Geskenke is die laaste liefdestaal. Hierdie liefdes taal kom baie algemeen onder kinders en vrouens voor, alhoewel dit ook by mans kan voorkom. Geskenke is ‘n baie konkrete voorbeeld van liefde. Geskenke hoef nie duur te wees nie – maar bloot die idee dat jy aan my gedink het toe jy dit gekoop het, maak my liefdeskoppie vol. · Vat bietjie tyd en leer mekaar se liefdestale ken. Gee vir mekaar liefde elke dag en dit sal jou verhouding voed soos water ‘n plantjie voed. Gee dit onvoorwaardelik en sonder om altyd iets terug te verwag. Vat aan mekaar, praat met mekaar, maak tyd vir mekaar, doen goed vir mekaar en aanvaar mekaar. Dit is wat liefde is…. bemin mekaar, aanvaar mekaar en respekteer mekaar – dan sal jul altyd EEN wees in liggaam, siel en gees.

1 Kor 13 die beste voorskrif van volmaak te liefde.

Nuwe uitdagings Nigel VLU dames sien uit na ‘n opwindende 2017 met nuwe kreasies. Vanjaar word die maandelikse vergaderings by N.G. Kerk Nigel-Oos se kerkgebou aangebied. Die dames het hul eerste vergadering op Donderdag, 12 Januarie gehou. Die gasspreekster was Chantelle Mennegke van Freedom Recovery Centre in Nigel. Sy het die rehabilitasie proses en misbruik van dwelms en verslaafdes gedeel. Saam met haar was Jean-Marie van Brackel wat self ‘n verslaafde was. Sy het haar verhaal van verslawing en genesing vertel. Die dames het die realiteit van verslawing besef. Nie net dwelms nie, maar ook voorskrif medisyne word

daagliks misbruik en verslawing spruit daaruit voort. Suzanne Drotsky het bedank as Voorsitster weens gesondheidsredes en Ronel Lombaard gaan die leisels oorneem. Die VLU dames het gedurende 2016 die bome van die jaar die Knoppiesboontjieboom, Wildevy en Gewone Witbos bestudeer en daarom ‘n boomplantdag gehou. Hulle het ‘n Pekanneut boom geplant aangesien die ander bome nie in Nigel aard nie. Hulle vertrou dat die boom vinnig gaan groei en baie vrugte sal dra en heerlike koelte sal verskaf. Die volgende vergadering is op 9 Februarie. Kontak Anna-Marie Axer 011 814 6084/ 082 886 2002. Jean-Marie van Brackel, Chantelle Mennegke ontvang elk ‘n pakkie van Mabel van Staden.

Skitterende prestasie

Dames spog met hul eie boom. Op die groep van links is Susan Valentin, Marie Fouche, Kitty Bronkhorst, Bets van der Nest, Bets Pienaar, Letitia Bester, Tonien Botha, Martha van der Walt, Rina Murphy, Erna du Toit, Mabel van Staaden, Anna-Marie Axer en Annatjie van der Merwe. Voor is Ronel Lombaard en Suzanne Drotsky besig om die Pekanneut boom te plant.


Luitenant Kolonel Amanda Viljoen van Heidelberg SAPD deel ‘n groot geskiedkundige gebeurtenis met die Rensburg VLU tak. Tydens hulle vergadering vertel Amanda die dames van die toekenning wat Heidelberg polisiestasie aan die einde van 2016 ontvang het, nadat hul as die nommer een polisiestasie in die land aangewys is. Amanda het al die nodige sektors se nommers bekend gemaak en hulle daarop attent gemaak om versigtig te wees veral by winkelsentrums en wonings tydens die inklim van hul motors. Sy vertel dat meeste rowe by elektriese hekke van inwoners plaasvind. Sy het ook raad rondom veiligheid gegee en dinge waarop gelet moet word. Sy het klem daarop gelê dat gereedskap en

ander items nie onnodig moet rondlê nie, dit dien as teiken om as skroot verkoop te word. Mense wat aan verdowingsmiddels verslaaf is, verkoop enige artikel vir geld. Amanda verseker die dames van die polisie se hulp en ondersteuning. Anja Jordaan het ‘n uitstalling gedoen oor die Versamelvoël, wat in Suidelike Afrika voorkom. Sy wys daarop dat die voëltjie baie soos die huismossie lyk en geslagtelik lyk hul eenders. Hulle maak grasdaknesse op telefoonpale, windpompe en in bome. Hulle neste kan tot 500 kamers hê en tot ‘n 1000kg weeg. Ander diere soos valkies, akkedisse, slange en perdebye woon soms saam in die Versamelvoël se neste. Die neste het talle funksies soos onder andere om hul teen temperatuur uiterstes te beskerm in die woestynagtige gebiede. Hulle broeiseisoen hang van die reënval af en begin om en by in Augustus en kan tot 9 maande duur. Gedurende baie droë seisoene broei hul glad nie. Die neste word uitgevoer met blomme en fyn plantmateriaal en het ‘n stewige lip wat sorg dat die eiers nie uitrol nie. Die 2-6 eiers neem 12-14 dae om uit te broei. Beide die ouers, sowel as helpers voer die kleintjies. Die Versamelvoëltjie is klein met reuse persoonlikheid.

Sagies se sport helde

Laerskool Hannes Visagie se Victor en Victrix Ludorum vir 2017 is Elske Stander en Petri Stoltz.

Laerskool Hannes Visagie se beste veldatleet tydens die Interhuis is dogter Mari Stoltz en seun Petri Stoltz.

Wie is wie?


19 900 Still not placed The DA is highly concerned that into the second week of the school year, 19 913 learners across the province have not been placed in a school, with no concrete assurances in place from Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi as to when they will f ind themselves in a classroom. The MEC announced that 12 821 applications had been received through walk-ins at admission centres, of which 7 820 are for Grade 1 and 5 001 for Grade 8. The learner, teacher ratio in the province is already high, making contact time difficult and focused interventions nearly impossible. This highlights the department’s failure to rapidly equip the province with desperately needed new schools. Whilst the reduction of online placements is commendable, thousands of learners in the second week of the school calendar still await placement. Parents have been given no assurance or deadlines as to when their children will be placed in school. MEC Lesuf i must communicate with parents and learners daily as to the number of placements made and provide assurance to parents that their children will be able to attend school. This will test the viability of the online registration system. The DA will be closely monitoring the progress of school admissions in the province and we will continue to conduct oversight visits at schools to inspect the impact of more learners whether it was followed by more resources – such as additional teachers, classrooms, stationery and furniture.

Think outside No box required In many towns, there is a lack of sport and recreational activities and suitable space to present these activities. But what about other, less publicised sports and activities? It is in effect all about keeping youngsters off the streets and away from danger and temptation. For older people, sport and activities create a platform to socialise, especially for those living alone. And for children, it can help develop their fine motor skills. It is natural to want to spend time with like-minded people as this adds more meaning and fulfilment to the time spent. Conventional sport would be rugby, soccer, tennis and badminton, hockey, cricket, running, athletics, cycling, boxing, wrestling, netball, swimming, martial arts, racing, bowling, volleyball, and basketball. Many also classify gym as a sport. And then, of course, sofa rugby. Extracurricular activities include chess, ballet, drama, modelling, choir practice, fishing, riding bikes and quads, walking or hiking, scrapbooking, painting, book clubs, and gardening. In our area, we are partly equipped with space to host sporting events, concerning the recent article on revamping the Jim Fouche sporting fields. We are bombarded by electronic devices consuming our every woken moment. It is damaging to our health. Children as young as five years are forced to wear spectacles because of ill eye health. The young, and young at heart spend a great deal of time on cell phones, iPads, PlayStations, Xboxes and WII. Already physical activity has dropped from hero to zero. But there is a solution in sight. Look at extraordinary sports from all over the world. They can be easily practised in South Africa. Croquet Involves hitting plastic or wooden balls with a mallet through hoops embedded in a grass playing court. Fencing No, not the type you have around your property. It is the ancient art of sword fighting. Zorbing

The recreation or sport of rolling downhill inside an orb, generally made of transparent plastic. Extreme Ironing People who play this wonderful sport go to some remote location and iron clothes! They call themselves ‘ironists’, and get a thrill from taking their ironing board, unplugged iron and some of their wrinkly clothes to some extreme places and photograph themselves doing it. Wife carrying competition A sport in which male competitors race while each is carrying a female teammate. It requires a man to negotiate a 253.5 m course while carrying their wife on their back. Chess boxing A hybrid sport that combines chess with boxing in alternating rounds. The sport alternates between games of boxing and chess after each round – waiting for a checkmate or knockout to decide the match. Bossaball It is like volleyball, but also includes elements of football, gymnastics and capoeira. The game played on a specially designed inflatable court with a circular trampoline on each side of a net. It is a ball game between two teams, each consisting of 3 to 5 players. Wall climbing An artificially constructed wall with grips for hands and feet, usually used for indoor climbing, but sometimes located outdoors.Wall climbing helps to develop the feet of a person who has a low foot arch. Knobkierie golf A traditional walking stick turned upside down. The knobkierie is cut from indigenous trees, and no two are alike. All we need is a few local spaces accessible to the public. Your most effective way is advertising in the Rekord Newspaper. Please entertain these open-air events: A salsa/tango/ballroom dancing competition; A chess game under the sky; A drive-in movie theatre; Walking or hiking club; Masterchef for children and adults; A beach volleyball tournament on sea sand.
