Article title

MAS Střední Vsetínsko is organizing the long-awaited 2nd year of the regional event, where 13 municipalities of the micro-region will compete against each other again, following the model of the legendary TV competition...

On Saturday, 8th June, our village participated in the Games without Borders, organized by MAS and DSO Střední Vsetínsko. The host and co-organizer this year was the village of Malá Bystřice, where in the beautiful camp Synodos took place a sports and knowledge competition of seven-member teams from thirteen municipalities and a separate team was put together symbolically by the Vsetín Hospital. Ratiboř was represented by the following team members: Martin Žabčík, Michal Mrlina, Štěpán Janíček, Václav Čala, Barbora Machálková, Monika Uhlířová and Radka Kovářová. The individual competitions focused on symbols associated with the village of Malá Bystřice. These included collecting juniper berries from the song Na Santově kopec (On Santa's Hill), chasing sheep in connection with the shepherd's festival, rescuing crayfish that live in the local lake, or making ice cream, which is currently also associated with Malá Bystřice. The competition ended with the captains of the teams, i.e. the mayors, competing in a competition called Taste Your Age.

This was the second edition of the competition, the first one was hosted by us in 2022 in the area of Červeny. Games without Borders aims to connect the municipalities in the territory of the LAG and DSO Střední Vsetínsko, to contribute to the improvement of community life and to help promote these organizations.

Our team managed to take the first place from the end of the table :-), in this competition is not important to win, but to participate. The winner was the municipality of Liptal, which defended its title. The next edition will take place in Liptal in 2026.

I would like to thank the members of the team from Ratibor for representing the municipality and as the chairman of the LAG and DSO Central Vsetin Region I would like to thank the staff of the LAG and DSO office, the citizens of Mala Bystřica led by the mayor Lucie Kotrlova and all the volunteers for the excellent preparation of the venue, preparation of incredibly funny competitions, exemplary care for the competitors and fans.
