Flipsi Freestylers perform at Poskokčev dan in Sežana

posted by Jean

On Friday June 10 Veronika and Brie, Sara and Riva, Blaž and Pupa, and Jean and Lyra, Oli and Bamm Bamm took part in "Poskokčev dan" (Poskokec Day) at the athletics stadium in Sežana, organized by the sports club Poskokec.

The weather that day was perfect, after a week of rain. There were all kinds of fun activities and events for kids and their families to take part in, and exciting performances by a variety of clubs and groups.

Including ours. :) We did some dogfrisbee demonstrations and performances at regular intervals throughout the evening. Conditions were perfect: a large area of soft, level grass, little wind (even in this land of the "burja"), and an appreciative audience.

In between shows we were available to talk with visitors about the sport, the club, and our dogs, some of whom were kept quite busy in the "petting zoo":

We also loaned some of our frisbees for the kids to throw, but due to the size of the crowd (about 1500 people) we kept it pretty limited, so that no stray frisbees would hit some poor little kid in the head.

Here's a video:

We had a lot of fun and were proud to be part of this great event. Already looking forward to next year!
