Powered by Firework The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has halted almost all sporting events and mass gatherings around the world, but there’s no stopping Belarus amid the global crisis. The country’s football league is still going on as per its schedule – however, a number of fans have recently started to boycott games in order to keep themselves safe.Advertisement Even though the Belarusian Premier League has grabbed the attention of football maniacs worldwide, fans in the country are worried with the increase of new Covid-19 cases. As per the latest reports, Belarus has registered over 2,226 cases, with 23 deaths so far.Advertisement But Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko, has refused to impose strict lockdown measures and has labelled the fears about coronavirus a “psychosis”. He also prescribed drinking vodka and going to saunas as the only options to battle the deadly disease, last month!Last Friday, 8th placed FC Neman Grodno played a 1-1 draw against FC Belshina Bobruisk in an almost deserted stadium as the Neman players applauded the empty stands in support for spectators staying away.Advertisement “The federation decided to play – so we play,” Igor Kovalevich, Neman’s coach voiced his dissent said after the game; while his opposite number, Eduard Gradoboyev of Belshina seemed concerned with the lack of fans in the arena,“Of course, it is the main problem. Because football is for spectators. And when you come to a absolutely half-empty stadium, especially such a good one like here in Grodno, it is a bit uncomfortable.”Even the Neman Grodno fan club urged people to stay at home via a statement.“Let’s stay home, reduce the risks associated with the spread of coronavirus, protect ourselves and our loved ones,” the statement read.However, one supporter who attended the game seemed mellow about the problem,“Am I worried or not worried? I guess most likely not. First of all there are not many people coming to watch football, there are no crowds. And all measures are taken at the stadium” he said.As the great Sir Alex Ferguson once said, “Football, Bloody Hell!” Advertisementlast_img read more

NDCU throws in support for a disc golf course

first_imgThe Nelson Disc Golf Society (NDGS) received some major financial support from the Nelson District Credit Union to install a proposed disc golf course (also known as Frisbee golf) in uphill Nelson.NDGS, a group of over 40 disc golf enthusiasts/volunteers, is currently waiting for feedback regarding a November presentation they made to Nelson City Council, where they proposed to fund, install, and maintain a disc golf course in zoned parkland between the Salmo-Troup Rail Trail and the Nelson Municipal Cemetery.The proposal includes building a trail identified in the city’s Active Transportation Plan, as well as new and upgraded hiking trails throughout the disc golf course site that can be enjoyed by both players and non-players. Disc golf is played much like traditional golf, but instead of using a ball and clubs, players throw a Frisbee at a target to complete a hole.The uphill site was identified this spring after the forest was partially cleared under the Community Wildfire Protection Program. The remaining trees and topography are ideal obstacles for a disc golf course. “It’s a fun, free family game we hope to play in a beautiful area of our city; all you need is a Frisbee,” said Mike Moor, one of NDGS’s members. “BC already has over 40 disc golf courses, six of them located in the Kootenays. Frisbee golf is growing in popularity and is now part of the BC Senior Games.” “The Nelson Disc Golf Society has a solid proposal and a lot of support and momentum for a local disc golf course. We hope the course will be an asset for the entire community,” said Bradley Roulston from the Nelson and District Credit Union. “We supported a similar course in Rossland, which has been a real success story.” Nelson & District Credit Union isn’t the only organization who feels this proposal is above par.“We’ve successfully raised over $12,000 from local businesses and the public of our community,” said Chris Charlwood of NDGS. “However, we are still $3,000 short in reaching our $15,000 budget.” NDGS is asking for permission only to install the targets, trails and signage this spring, in cooperation with the city, at no cost.
