Sports and entertainment show
Every autumn a hot sport time comes for the workers of “UMMC” companies. As a rule from September elimination tours of the Sports and entertaining show “My Family and I” (“7-я”) begin. Teams consisting of families in which at least one member works at “UMMC” traditionally compete for the honored name “The most sports family of “UMMC”.
As a rule every command includes four people: mom, dad and two children.
From year to year organizers – members of the charities fund “Children of Russia” – try to invent most fascinating and spectacular trials where the family race on giant skies and the family run inside air-inflated “caterpillar” are perhaps most simple exercises.
In the final which traditionally is held in the end of October in the Birthday of the company the most sports families compete for the main prize what is a family trip abroad. Unbiased referees who are famous sportsmen judge the tournament on the most strict objective evaluation. In different years among the jury of the tournament there were Olga Korostyleva, Irina Zilber, Yuriy Prilukov, Olga Kotlyarova and many other Ural sportsmen which don’t need special presentation. Members of star command of the Club of the Funny and Inventive “The Ural Pelmens” were also members of the jury.
For more than 10 years of this traditional competition family commands from Revda, Shadrinsk, Sibay, Kemerovo, Serov, Verhnyaya Pyshma, Uchalov, Vladikavkaz raised on the monument of honor.
“My Family and I” (“7-я”) is not only a sport competition but a colored show-program.
