III. Silesia Grand Prix (SGP)

III. Silesia Grand Prix (SGP)

The SGP competition was included into the competition calendar literally at the last minute; the placement was preceded by an enormous interest in participating in the contest “Memorial of Jiří Necid”. The interest was so high that before the final rounds of the Czech Championship in Majorette Sports, the competition capacity was full. That is why it was decided, in accordance with the competition rules, to extend the competition for two days. However, the Sports hall of Prof.Zdeněk Matějček in Ostrava did not have a free lease term on Sunday, and another term of the MJN holding was no longer considered for reasons of possible advancing at the European Championship. Therefore, the competition was held in another place on the second day and was a separate contest. The host was Hlučín, only 12 km away from the Ostrava Hall and the local organizer was MK Ballerisimo. The SGP will be a contest open also for next time and an international one. It was though a quick solution, but the number of participants confirmed it to be good. The chance to compete not only for the medals, but also for the European and World Championships, got 154 formations (15 groups and 129 small formations), from this clubs: Mažoretky Rebelky Bílovec, Dračice Bystřice, STARS Talento Frýdek-Místek, KALA Havířov, Cheeky Cheerky Hradec Králové, Charlie Hradec nad Moravicí, ITS Junior Chotěboř, Juventus Karviná, MiKaDo Karviná, LEXY Kroměříž, Neonky Moravská Nová Ves, MONA Náchod, AMA Opava, TK Dancing Roses Opava, Daisy Ostrava, Elité Ostrava, Stars Ostrava, LV2 Sokol Písek, Mažoretky Petra Studénka, Mažoretky Severových Zábřeh, Klub mažoretek Zakřany, domácí MK Ballerisimo Hlučín a Paprsky Hlučín.

So a quick solution, when for the whole preparation, including the processing of applications, was only one month would not do without the support of the town and the willingness of the local organizer. The competition was attended almost all the time by Mrs. Blanka Kotrlová, Deputy Mayor of the City, who has been awarded the patronage for the competition, as well as by the headmaster of the school that provided the school as a background (cloakrooms, registrations) and Mr. Josef Doležel, President of International Federation Majorettes Sport, who aworded also this time the Cup to the group with the highest number of points. The cup was received by a group of junior women from Zakrany Majorettes Club, for 56.35 points. The group also won the advancing for the World Championship. Zakrany have become one of many model examples of how not to surrender, work on herself and by repeatedly participating in competitions advance to the highest competition and thus to become an elite of majorettes sport. The Zakrany are also proof of that even in small towns and villages, high-level majorettes sport can be done.

The SGP was a well-done competition and motivated the contestants to fight again not only for the medals but also for the advancing for higher competitions. Even the thunder and lightning could not prevent the SGP. The thunderstorm caused the interruption of the power supply. However, this failure was not long, but time advance was by waiting over, but the ending was in supposed time, to be spontaneous and stormy. The announcement of the results was especially after the end of the age category of little cadets and cadets and especially for all other disciplines and age categories until the end of the competition. With the first one, the organizers “played” and let the Majorettes board the side entrance, which was a success. Two announcements were also practical exercises at the ECH. In Crikvenica, on the Adriatic coast, there is no need to keep the competitors in the filled hall, the sea is tempting.

We wish all of us once again a beautiful experience of the anthem, which we heard in the open ceremonial from Mrs. Simona Mrázová, opera singer.

After all, you can see all of this again on a live broadcast, located at our page.

VI. Jiří Necid Memorial (MJN) 2017

VI. Jiří Necid Memorial (MJN) 2017

The sixth year of this already prestigious competition took place this time in Ostrava, in the sports hall of Prof. Zdeněk Matějček, under the patronage of the Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region, prof. Ing. Ivo Vondrák, CSc.

MJN is included in international competitions and foreign clubs together with Czech ones have filled the competition to the limit of its capacity still before the end of the championship. The following clubs were represented at the MJN:

Mažoretkinje Dubrovčan Veliko Trgovišće, Croatia, Bratislavske mažoretky(majorettes) Bratislava, Sašetky Hlohovec, MK Flowers Prešov, EDIT Staškov, Merci Záhorská Ves, Panterky Dolní Beřkovice, TOP Majorettes Dixi Havířov, Cheeky Cheerky Hradec Králové, Minima Husinec, Hraběnky Kamenice, Juventus Karviná, Michell Karviná, MiKaDo Karviná, M Ladies Klimkovice, AMA Opava, Adrianky Ostrava, Donna Praha, TOP (majorettes) Mažoretky Praha, Fantasy Přerov, Bohemia ZUŠ Přeštice, Coloseuml Dance Team Štěnovice, Sara Trutnov, Elité Ostrava, Mirabell Teplice, PV Team Teplice.

The voting of a Golden Majorette, which took place for the second time, was divided into sections between the competition blocks. This time, 25 majorettes were registered (last year 10), including from Slovakia and Croatia. The Czech candidates were presented already during the championship, others had their premiere only at the MJN. As it is already common practice, at the last minute the registered candidates logged off and the unregistered ones signed up again. It was quite “fun” to keep changing the list; At first it seemed that the serial numbers were not going to be enough, then again that they would not pin them. Before the start, everything was “squashed” and 16 candidates took over the area. The voting of a Golden Majorette is seen as a social game with the aim of further positive promotion of clubs through their charges. The girls performed the voting with all the glory, it suited to all the candidates, especially to the decorated ones. The Golden majorett 2017 became Aneta Vacková, MONA Náchod, Silver majorett 2017 Tereza Torcikova, Elité Ostrava and Bronze majorett 2017 Sara Bogović, Mažoretkinje Dubrovnik Veliko Trgovišće

The MJN is a progressive contest, and so it was fought for advancing. As a result, there were in some cases advancing for the World Championship, in other cases for the European Championship. Only the medal places have been again so little, unfortunately, the winner grades are only three.

At the end of the competition, the Cup by the president of International Federation Majorettes Sport was also awarded. The cup could be gained by a group with the equipment baton for the highest number of points achieved. This was done by the domestic team of juniors from Elity Ostrava, which won 60.1 points. All members of the junior group did not conceal the surprise and joy of such a cup.

At the start, a total of 212 formations (39 groups and 173 small formations) were replaced and evaluated. Contestant Majorettes from Slovakia and Croatia varied and enriched the competition. Mr Necid would be surely happy about such a competition, the announcement of the results was similar to those of the 1990s that preceded the majorettes sport. The hymns changed during the announcement, the atmosphere in the hall was amazing and friendly, the ovations graded and did not take the ends. And that’s the way it should be; everyone cannot win, but they can take the competition as a friendly gathering.

“Dear Friends of Majorette Sport! I greet you at the occasion of the 6th Memorial of Jiří Necid and I am very sorry that I can not attend this event for business reasons. Mr. Necid did not know how he would influence our lives. He bravely went to his goal, he invented the rules and the entire organization of the competitions. He joined into his idea companions and friends all over our country. Unfortunately he left us too soon but luckily he found followers who took over his ideas and majorette sport continues to develop not only in our country but also abroad. The 5th annual World Championship, which is held regularly in Prague, will be a brilliant proof of that in August this year, and here is a great thank to Mrs. Marta Pavelková and to all who help her that the majorettes sport gets more and more fans and that the link of the work of Mr Necid continues to be valid for the next generations. I wish to all contestants good feeling about honest sporting performance and look forward to a meeting in Prague. Your Milan Ludvík “

International Open Cup from the perspective of Czech judges

International Open Cup from the perspective of Czech judges

This year, the part of the World Dancing Youth Olympics in Moscow was Ist International Majorettes Open Cup, held on May 5th and 6th, 2017, in Sokolniky. For the Czech Republic Iva Poláková and bachelor Michaela Poláková were nominated to the judges, and for contestants accepted the nomination the majorettes Bohemia of the School of Fine Arts Přeštice.

The main organizer was the Federation of Sport Choreography of the Russian Committee of Sport Majorettes. The competition was attended by a total of 2,203 majorettes, which surpassed the number of last year’s Grand Prix in Moscow, and this number was written in the Russian Book of Records.

From organizational point of view, they have the organizers, from whom is the competition very well prepared, from the registration, the number of judges, the background for the spectators, to the safety of all the participating contestants and spectators. The competition was held in two sports halls, that were perfectly air-conditioned.

As jury and coaches we were also very much surprised by the high level of movement training of most Russian groups. If they will take part in the World Championship 2017 in Prague, they will be equal opponents to other contestants and we can look forward to a beautiful spectacle.

We really enjoyed the discipline with drums. With this discipline, we had to manage as jury. It was scored the same as other disciplines. Some choreographies have been very successful and we can even say that we were amazed by this sporting art.

The judging was generally challenging for the jury to concentrate and speed. For a large number of starters, the course of the racing groups had a very rapid course, and a short period of time was determined for the point rating. Each competitor was rated individually on one piece of paper. The system of scoring was the same as in the Czech Federation, except that the jury had to count himself the marks for choreography, movement and equipment, and to hand over the point form immediately to the collector who handed it to the computer center where the results were processed. Individual judges’ marks were posted after the results announcement publicly with the names of members of the jury, as the given member of the jury evaluated.

There was not much time for a tour of Moscow, but we tried to visit places typical for Moscow without which it would not be possible to leave. With the approaching “Day of Victoria” everywhere a festive atmosphere breathed to us. The cleanliness of the city was a great surprise for us, helpful friendly people at every corner and some charming metro stations left us with an amazing experience.

Thanks this way to the Czech Federation of Majorette Sports (ČFMS) to Marta Pavelkova and the president of International Federation of Majorettes Sport (IFMS) Josef Doležel, for the confidence and possibilities to gain further experience as the jury at the International Open Cup, which was included in the World Youth Olympics.

A great thanks for caring during the whole course of the competition to Mrs Olga Yurchenko.

The support for sport in the Russian Federation is incredible.
