Thank you very much for being able to do this kind of initiative in the corona misfortune.
We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who made an effort to hold the event for the first time in 2017 and to be able to hold it again this year at Nanae Akamatsu Park.
At this summer festival (hereinafter referred to as the festival), Mr. Shiotani, chairman of the Kanagawa Handball Association, from far away from Kanagawa, Mr. Fujimoto, executive director of the Aomori Handball Association from Aomori, and Nakagawa, the representative director of Deportare Handball Club from Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture.

Street handball activities are carried out with the goal of being held outdoors. I would like to introduce everyone’s impressions of the inspection. Everyone who came to the venue was surprised to see up close how the tents and tarps were set up skillfully.
In Honshu, it is difficult to find a venue with such an environment, and I heard that each family does not have tents and other equipment, so it is difficult to hold a similar event in other areas. I would like to once again express my gratitude to everyone involved, including the existence of Akamatsu Park.

In July of this year, with the number of coronavirus infections increasing steadily, we would like to thank all the athletes who participated on the day and their families for seriously working on infection control. As a result, the number of corona outbreaks in the competition was 0 (zero).
On the day of the event, it was held outdoors, so it was up to the contestants to decide whether or not to wear a mask. The gallery asked us to wear a mask as much as possible.
For this tournament, we took out insurance for participants and related parties and worked on safety measures. I have asked you many times to make sure you are always hydrated to prevent heatstroke. As a result, there were no reports of accident injuries. In addition, we donate toilet paper (12 rolls) to the management organization considering the use of the toilet by related parties.

If we eat separately, we will make mistakes in garbage disposal, so we all had lunch together and cleaned up the garbage together.
“Everyone cooperated on the way back, and the end time was as planned.” I think it was a fun festival, working on safety measures until the very end. It was supported by the initiative of everyone in the Nanae area and activities to confirm safety and prevent danger. We will work hard to hold the event at Nanae Akamatsu Park again next year.
