Pancake week has come!

Date of material placement: 15-03-2013, 11:20.

"Evenings on a farm near NCFU” took place on March 14. It is the name of student festival devoted to Pancake week, which was based on the collection of stories by N.V. Gogol "Evenings on a farm near Dikanka” ("Christmas Eve”).

Presenters, Solokha and the devil met the guests in the yard of the scientific library. There were two teams: women's team and men's team.

The first team that gave its pancakes to the audience and the jury to taste them was the women’s team (Institute of Pedagogics, Institute of Oil and Gas, Institute of Economics and Management, Institute of Natural Sciences). The girls baked pancakes and waited for guests. They also filled some tea and offered everybody to taste everything on the table. One could sing humorous rhymes to the accompaniment of host’s button accordion.

On the opposite side the men (Institute of Information Technologies and Telecommunications, Institute of Law, Institute of Electric Power Engineering, Electronics and Nano-technologies, Institute of Construction, Transport and Engineering) met the guests under the arch made of balloons. Everybody was surprised by their declamatory and culinary abilities. Then they competed in strength and dexterity. Participants, who were supported by the fans, were doing their best and the winners got a storm of applause.

Oksana and Vakula appeared soon. When the girl saw the blacksmith she told him to get for her the slippers off the Tsarina’s feet to prove his love.

Solokha and the devil were in a hurry to help the blacksmith. They asked students for assistance to solve that problem. The participants of the game needed to get small parts and make from them the photo of the person who had hidden the slippers.

Each institute prepared its team which should take the route lists and pass several stations: when the task was successfully done the team got a part of the photo. The routes were organized in such way that two teams should compete at one station: the winner should get 3 parts, and the loser should get only 1 part.

While the participants had been doing tasks, the guests were dancing and singing in a ring.

The teams joined their efforts, made the photo and finally found the person who had the slippers. That’s the way the real love was saved!

When everybody had some fun, the ensemble "Cossack freedom” was showing its skills, the jury was summing up the results.

The women’s team turned out to be the winner. The competition among the institutes showed the following results: Institute of Information Technologies and Telecommunications took the third place, Institute of Natural Sciences took the second place and Institute of Law won the first place.

At the end of the holiday the effigy of Maslenitsa was burned. That’s the way North-Caucasus Federal University met spring.
