Second MAJET Sports Day!

Why should the kids have all the fun? Gather your friends and join us at Oyodo River Park across from Miyazaki City Hall on October 14th to put your speed, strength, and skill to the test!  After the rousing success of last year’s Undoukai, MAJET is excited to host another one! In 2016, Team Instinct (pictured below) took home the very first MAJET Undoukai Cup.  Will your team rise to the occasion and top Instinct’s final score?!

dsc_0428.jpgThis year’s festival will be held in the same location, with the addition of awnings to provide glorious shade! But knowing sunny Hinata Miyazaki, you’ll still want to bring along some sunscreen and plenty of water. The events will consist of a few fan favourites from the 1st MAJET Undoukai, traditional Japanese sports festival activities, and some new exciting additions. Keep in mind that this is a Sports Day. While we will do our best to mix up high and low-activity level events, there definitely will be a fair amount of physical activity involved. By far the best part of a MAJET Undoukai is that there is no pre-event practice and no ominous marching. Yay!

We will be meeting at 12:30pm for registration, then the events will start promptly after the 1:00pm opening ceremony. Your teammates need you, so please don’t be late!
