The "rolling stones" successfully won 2nd place at the Kubb tournament

The research group team "rolling stones" successfully won second place at the institutes Kubb tournament on Wednesday! After competing against various teams such as the research group of social geography, the student council and others, our team was finally beaten in the final by the "earth watchers" from the research group of Malenovský.
