Preparation for Summer English camp

Yesterday I travelled with a few others to a camp next to the River Tara in the eponymous canyon. The plan was to check out Camp Green as a possible site for the annual English language student camp, which we have previously held at Vucje, as well as for another camp for teenagers. We were very much welcomed by the hosts and spent rather longer than expected talking, eating and looking round the area. It is certainly very beautiful being in the mountains, in a canyon by rushing blue water. The accommodation is made up of comfortable log cabin-style chalets and seems an excellent place to go. It has also whetted my appetite to explore the north-west corner of Montenegro.

Spring in Niksic

The last vestiges of snow are disappearing and it is like the best British summer weather one could hope for. In the village / suburb where I live everyone has started tilling the land, either manually or with tractors, next-door has bought a pig and the smell of the countryside fills the air, as people dig lots of manure into their vegetable plots and orchards. Wondering when that proper spring rain will start, we could do with a big downpour to wash away all remains of winter, especially the road grit and the last patches of snow remaining in the shadows. I have hayfever which is unusual for me, but I'd rather get it out of the way now rather than the height of summer.

Pig-slaughtering day

No, it's not a date in a cultic calendar - this is the season in Niksic and many other places in this part of the world where the pigs that have been raised since the spring in makeshift sties in back gardens finally get taken to market, or more usually slaughtered in said back garden. The weather has been very sunny and pleasant so far this autumn, but the temperatures are beginning to plunge. Many people time their weddings to coincide with this optimal period of the year so that the cost of feeding guests is relatively low. There is a period now until the advent fast begins when people can eat as much pork as they please, and prepare hams for smoking and drying, one of the great local traditions, ranking alongside brandy distillation.

Manjak piva u gradu piva

Prvo da kazem, jer ce me neko pogresno shvatiti, ne mislim da ljudi u Niksicu treba vise alkohola da piju, nego da probaju nesto novo - u svakom domacinstvu, cini mi se, neko pravi domacu rakiju, i to je lijepa crnogorska tradicija, ali u gradu piva rijetko ko pravi domace pivo, sto znaci da obicno imamo mali broj vrsta piva da pijemo, ili po kafanama ili kod kuce. U kineskom restoranu u Niksicu, cuo sam da sluze svoje domace pivo. Zbog nedostatka domaceg piva, odlucio sam da probam da pravim pivo, a da ne konkurisem sa Niksickim pivom, nego da pravim 'englesko' gorko pivo (Bitter). Prije par mjeseci, kad sam posjecivao svoju domovinu Englesku, kupio sam koncentrat (ok ovo je prvi korak ka pravim domacim pivu) i nakon povratka u Niksic pripremio sam svoje prvo bure piva (25 litara). Zadovoljan sam sa rezultatima, i sad se spremam za drugi pokusaj. Svi koji me poznaju u Niksicu dobrodosli su kod mene da probaju. Bilo bi odlicno kad bi vise ljudi pocelo da pravi svoje pivo, i ko zna sta bi konkurencija uspijelo da promijeni kod nase pivare...

Ovo je izvod od sajta za lakefest www.lakefest.me:

Cicenje Krupackog jezera

Organizacija- Lake fest u saradnji sa Ronilackim klubom Nikic

Ronilacki klub Nikic kao jedan od najznacajnijih i najaktivnijih u ovoj oblasti u Crnoj Gori ce u okviru manifestacije Lake fest realizovati projekat cicenja Krupackog jezera i na taj nacin ce, zajedno sa organizatorima festivala, dati puni doprinos gradu ali i Crnoj Gori kao ekolokoj dravi.

Krupacko jezero je poznato kao izletite gradjana Nikica, mjesto za odmor, a ne malom broju gradjana zamjena za more. Vremenom je to jezero preputeno samo sebi i koriste se u razlicite svrhe.U njemu se nalazi velika kolicina otpada razlicitog porijekla, koji u svakom trenutku prijeti da postane izvorite zaraze ne malom broju kupaca i gradjana koji u ljetnjim mjesecima u ogromnom broju koriste ovo jezero.


Akcija Ronilackog kluba Nikic, u okviru Lake festa sastojala bi se u cicenju Krupackog jezera, u danima trajanja Festa 22-24 jula.2011.

Cicenje bi podrazumijevalo podvodni dio uz obalu u pojasu od 20 metara i pojas od 10 metara uz branu jezera. Podvodno cicenje koje bi obavili clanovi kluba zahtijevalo bi dvodnevni angaman 6 ronilaca, ronilacki camac sa skiperom, ronilacki kompresor za punjenje boca i kompresorista. Kompletan angaman i aktivnost Ronilackog kluba Nikic je vrijednosti oko 5000,00 eura i on bi bio podrka manifestaciji Lake fest i gradjanima Nikica.

Ovo bi bio znacajan projekat za grad, kao i nacin da se afirmie saradnja izmedju sportskih kolektiva i privrednih subjekata, kao i afirmacije ronilackog sporta.
