Futsal Event Report / フットサルイベントレポート

In anticipation of the World Cup in Brazil, The Entente held an event on the 14th June, 2014 at the Rokko Island Football Stadium. Futsal differs from football in several ways; teams of 5 players compete on a smaller field with smaller goals as well as a heavier ball. Futsal is said to have originated in Uruguay and spread throughout Brazil in the 1930’s and 1940’s. In fact, in Brazil more people play futsal than football as it can be played by anyone regardless of weather conditions.

On the day of the event, three teams (A, B and C) competed in eight 10 minute matches in a league style format. The weather was ideal as the sun shone down upon the field and within a couple of matches everyone was dripping with sweat. The games were competitive but friendly as each team played their hardest to come out on top. With no substitutions, each game was a test of willpower and physical endurance for all the players involved.

In the end, Team C was victorious and came in first place undefeated. Team A came second and Team B came in last place. Special mention goes to Mr. and Mrs. Hodge who played a large role in Team C’s victory. Mr. Hodge scored 4 goals and received a prize for being the top scorer on the day. Not to be outdone by her husband, Mrs. Hodge received the award for Most Valuable Player as she assisted in several goals, scored a couple herself and played a central part in Team C’s success.

Everyone who participated had a great time and a good workout.  We hope to see you at the next fitness club event. Thank you.

On Saturday the 26th of April, we went hiking up Mt. Rokko and toured ArimaOnsen for the second time.
We started at Hankyu Ashiyagawa station at 9am and after about 20 minutes; we encountered our first obstacle, the Rock Garden cliff.  With great weather on our side, we finished our ascent up the cliff, drenched in sweat but without incident.  Our next stop was Kazafukiiwa.  By this time several people had even consumed most of their water supply.  After a short break at Kazafukiiwa, we continued on to Amegatouge, Honjoubashi and finally on to the heart-pounding Nanamagari.
It had become quitecongested since we start debut Mr. & Mrs. Miyazaki, Mr. Yasuda and Mr. Tanaka, promptly passed through the crowd and continued along the mountain path.  I was taken aback by their endurance and willpower.  At the summit, we had lunch followed by some light stretches and headed down the final slope towards ArimaOnsen.  We refreshed ourselves by soaking our feet in the cool water of a pristine river we found along the way. Then at Arima, we relaxed our fatigued bodies in the comfort of the hot springs. Of course this event would not have been possible without the participation of our valued members.  I would like to thank everyone who participated in this event and hope to see more and more members at future events.

4月26日(土)に2回目となる【六甲山ハイキング~有馬温泉ツアーvol.2】のイベントが開催されました。午前9時に阪急芦屋川駅をスタートし20分程進むと最初の難関「ロックガーデン」の崖に遭遇します。天候にも恵まれ全員が汗だくになりながらも怪我なく無事に登り終えると次に目指すは「風吹岩」。ここに到着するまでにほとんどの水分補給をしてしまった人もいました。風吹岩で少し休憩をとった後、雨ヶ峠、本庄橋と順調に進みいよいよ心臓破り「七曲り」へ・・・ スタート地点から渋滞が発生していましたが、宮崎さんご夫妻と安田さん、田中さんは渋滞を潜り抜け早々と山道を上って行かれました。その体力と精神力には本当に驚かされました。山頂につくとランチと軽いストレッチを行い最後の下り坂ルートで有馬へ向かいました。途中には綺麗な川が流れ、冷水に足を浸かりながらリフレッシュをしました。有馬では、帰りのチャーターバスは手配できませんでしたが、ゆったりと温泉で疲れを癒されたことと思います。今回のイベントが実施出来たのは参加者のみなさまのお陰だと思っております。ありがとうございました。今後も様々なイベント行って参りますので皆様のご参加宜しくお願いいたします。
