Another newcomer to this year’s Veko is ‘Ta sjansen i Vangsen’
This type of event has become more and more popular around the world, and has finally has it reached Voss. Participant in this fun event have built their own vessel/raft that they have used to slide down from the top of the slide. After landing in the water the participant had to swim to a bell about 50 meters out in the lake. The team who rang the bell the fastest won the competition.
Todays event has been absolutely fantastic and there was an enourmes crowd around the ramp and all the way to Voss Kulturhus and Prestegardslandet. The competitions started of with all kinds of unique and fun creations. Everything from small dollhouses to a giant cow and a enormous shrimp. Some of the contestants tried to gain some extra points by handing out free food and massages. Team Eureka handed out homemade shrimp sandwhiches to the judges while team Montage gave the judges a neckmassage. Extrem sport veteran Marcio Franco and Eirik Øvreeide was also a part of the competition. Unfortuagenely for Marcio his raft got a bad start when landing and he did not make the top three. Eirik however got a good landing and managed to ring the bell at 22.5 sec!
It was a thigh race all the way true with many good athlets and spectacular creations.
