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.
