The Council of AEJeST met in BUCAREST from 5 to 8th of May to the Invitation of the Romanian federation of OINA.

On Friday delegates participated to a conference with responsibles from Education and Cultural ministries in order to think about futures actions in favour of TSG in Romania. On Saturday they watched the national final of OINA called ‘King Cup’ (photo 2).

Following the AEJeST meeting, from 9 to 16, G.Jaouen and Petar Petrov, from the Bulgarian Ethnologic Institute, have done 2000km (till Moldovia) in order to meet people in charge of TSG, mainly thanks to the OINA network. They were able to note that several skittle games are still alive (photo 3), as well as games similar to OINA, as Tsurca. There were also two traditional styles of wrestling and they met Aidan Ablez, president of the Tatar wrestling federation (photo 4).
