“Trojka iz Bloka” in Republic of Srpska

On Sunday, September 27, the first “Trojka iz Bloka” Tournament in the Republic of Srpska was held at the “Peki” Sports Center in Pale! We set up a new level and entered the Republic of Srpska with style! Hundreds of Pale residents came to watch the 3-point shooting competition, about 55 of them participated, and 1,047 BAM and 30 Euros were raised! This big aid was intended for the Mandic family with four children from Pale. All of us gathered and showed them that they are not alone and forgotten.

The spirit of benevolence and unity overcame the “Peki” sports center, which was almost full, despite the rain and bad weather. The tournament was opened with the solemn performance of the anthem Boze Pravde by the young Marijana Kapuran, who won the hearts of everybody present with her looks and her voice. After the solemn introduction, the spectators were addressed by Jovana Zeljaja, main coordinator of the “Trojka iz Bloka” for the Republic of Srpska. She greeted the people present and thanked them for taking the time and money for the noble mission of the “Trojka iz Bloka”.

Big and significant support came from our sponsors in Pale: Kristal Hotel, Rinaldi Restaurant, “Aquarius” Café, Pale Municipality, “INLingua” Language Center, MIN printing, ZOO VET vet clinic, Klas Bakery, Milkus D.O.O., “Majnex” D.O.O., Pale Sports-Cultural Center and Sarajevo invest. The “Peki” Sports Center was the technical sponsor of the tournament; “INLingua” Language Center gave one-year course of foreign languages to one child from the Mandic family, while the “Majnex” D.O.O. made a donation consisting of blocks for bathroom construction for the Mandic family. We would like to thank the good people from Pale because they showed everybody how we should care for our disadvantaged neighbors! We were proud to be in this famous town and we cannot wait for the next season of outdoor tournaments, when we plan on visiting many more towns and cities in our Republic of Srpska!




As always at the “Trojka iz Bloka” Tournaments, we prepared a few surprises. Legendary Belgrade DJ, Paja Koba33, was with us and played foreign and domestic hits during the tournament and provided music background for two young rappers who came with us from Serbia: Uncle Dzo and Eldorado. Young theologian Uncle Dzo has been a part of the “Trojka iz Bloka” mission for a very long time, and this time he brought backup at the microphone – his friend and colleague Eldorado. Young Pale residents were delighted by the performance of their favorite rappers, and everybody at the hall was waiting impatiently for the special spectacle which was part of the tournament – performance of the “Romanija” Karate Club members. Beautiful children, young sportspeople, demonstrated their skills and presented the philosophy of karate to us. The magic of the “Trojka iz Bloka” – sport, fun and humaneness – in all its glory in Pale!
