MA TSUN KUEN INTERNATIONAL SUMMER CAMP 2014

!

TAIJIQUAN SCHOOL MA TSUN KUEN TRIESTE is pleased to announce that this year's summer meeting will be held again in Sappada.

!

!

There are few changes from the previous year. The site is not only beautiful, but well suited to the practice with a a very pleasant temperature for the month of July.

!

Sappada is a town in the province of Belluno on the border between Veneto, Friuli and Austria, in the extreme east of the Dolomites.

!

The village is situated at an altitude of 1250 meters above sea level and has about 1500 inhabitants, who in the summer and winter seasons are multiplying. The town extends lengthwise through the whole valley, from east to west, and is flanked by the river Piave, which has its own sources within the municipal area.

!

The surrounding environment is Dolomite, with mountains that reach up to 2700m (Monte Peralba, at whose feet was created just the Piave), coniferous forests and meadows that are mowed in the summer to give hay to the cows while the winter Whitening allowing skiers of all specialties to practice their favorite sport.

!

There are some features that are typical in particular of Sappada which arise from its origins. First, the dialect is a variant of Austrian dialect that has remained intact over the centuries because there were no more large of a linguistic influences on the Austrian side. The name "Plodn" is the correspondent of "Sappada" in the local dialect.


! !

Other feature is the conformation of the country divided into fifteen townships, some newer and some older that over time have expanded to form the town it is today. Walking through the village you can still see many old houses of wood that have remained more or less intact: in particular, are located in the villages that make Sappada old.

!

The main resource of Sappada is tourism, both summer and winter and there is a growing commitment in welcoming guests who come here to relax and breathe a little 'clean air, in addition to the care of entertainment facilities such as ski lifts, sports, mountain huts and mountain trails.

! ! ! THE HOTEL !

! PRACTICE PLACE !

We have green zones and meadows around the hotel but... everything is green in Sappada!! so the place to practice this year will not be a problem. We have shade and even some people in the village liked very much our intention to organize an international meeting in your town. In case of rain if the room offered by the hotel were not enough, the same City Council offers free room.
