Wednesday 13th of April was the beginning of miniUKA! We started on Storebrand with the miniUKArelay and a speech by the UKAchief! The relay itself was introduced by STUNT showing the different challenges the teams were facing. There were six different stations with different tasks the team had to solve. The first one was to saw a relay baton for the whole race. Here some of the teams had trouble to finish, but in the end everything went well. The second station was to slide down a tarpaulin with soap and water as fast as you could. After that you had to run and jump into a wheelbarrow and another one on your team would push you to the next station. On the 4th station you had to row to the little island in Skogsdammen and back before handing over the relay barrow to the next post. On the second last station you had to jump from bales to bales before handing the relay barrow to the last post. The last post was especially adventurous because you had to wear special glasses that makes you feel ”drunk” and then run down a trial which ended with you throwing a log to hit another log. The atmosphere was great, and there were many people watching. There was a real struggle between the teams but in the end Over Rævne won! The miniUKArelay was overall a great start on miniUKA, and we really look forward to the rest!
