2nd International EAF Youth Camp in Croatia

On July 3 to 7 came to a very beautiful place Sinj near the Adriatic Sea young anglers from Czech Republic, France, Poland and of course from Croatia. It was held here already the second meeting of youth of the Angler Unions associated in European Anglers Federation. The organization of this meeting has been entrusted to the Croatian Sport Fishing Assotiation, which took on the task excellently.

The organizers prepared for the participants rich and very attractive program. The first day was held the sightseeing tour of Sinj and the visit of the local museum. The next morning, just after the opening ceremony, the meeting participants were welcomed by the representatives of the Town Hall of Sinj. Later in the morning were prepared at the local stadium some competitions in various sports disciplines. The Friday afternoon was reserved for a visit to the National Park of Krka and the day ended with the competitions in table tennis, table football and in darts. For the Saturday morning was prepared a tour of the city of Split and the afternoon was reserved for swimming in the sea, diving competitions and the ball games.

Angling for the participants of the meeting waited on Sunday morning. Fishing competitions were held on the lake Plana. The competitors were really successful. For two and half hours caught a total of over 400 pieces of fish. On Sunday afternoon has been scheduled a trip to Dabar, where the competitions in air-soft were held as well as the rafting on the River of Cetina. In the evening took place the closing ceremony, during which the winners of the whole meeting were announced. But we will not to name them, because they won everyone who the 2nd International EAF Youth Camp in Croatia attended. Too bad that participated here only four countries from eleven members of EAF. We believe that those EAF members which were still hesitant, will arrive to the 3rd camp in Poland in 2016 and to the 4th camp in France in 2018.

We have said that we will not naming the winners. But one of them we would like after all to mention. It is the Croatian Sport Fishing Assotiation headed by its President Mr. Vladimir Sever and of course all the other organizers who contributed to the success of this event and to promote of the European Anglers Federation. The 2nd International EAF Youth Camp in Croatia is now a history. But already now we can look forward to a 3rd Youth Camp which propably will be held for two years in Poland.
