Svirče - the place to be!

Is the legend about the name of the village true, the one which says that shepherds from Vrbanj left playing their flutes and inhabited this area or the one which says that it came from the word ‘’svir’’ meaning ‘’source’’? We’ll probably never know but that is not what is really important. What does matter is what Svirče is today and what its future is going to be like.

10 godina MNK Vodenjača na Hvaru, Jelsa

MNK Vodenjača je klub osnovan 15.06.2002.godine na inicijativu Hrvoja Deanovića, koji je odlučio pokrenuti nekolicinu mladih momaka i u njima probuditi volju i želju za malim nogometom. Na početku osnivanja MNK Vodenjače to nije izgledalo tako ozbiljno kako je to danas. MNK Vodenjača se već može pohvaliti organizacijom mnogobrojnih koncerata te također postizanjem dobrih sportskih rezultata. Prvi veći podvig (po meni i najveći do sada) je bio organiziranje koncerta Mate Miše Kovača 2007.godine. Klub je tada svoje prijatelje počastio spektakularnim koncertom. Koncertu se odazvalo više od 1000 ljudi i dan danas je to događaj o kojem se priča. Sljedeće godine je organiziran koncert TBF-a i Kopita, a prošle godine i koncert Marijana Bana i njegovog pratećeg benda Diktatora. Također smo i 4 godine zaredom organizirali i štand na tradicionalnoj fešti u Jelsi povodom „Fešte vina“, ali nažalost, tu lijepu tradiciju morali smo prekinuti zbog poslovnih obaveza članova našeg kluba(ipak je ljeto i treba stavit koju kunu na stranu za dugu i tešku zimu). Svi koncerti MNK Vodenjače su bili dijelom i humanitarnog karaktera, pa se možemo pohvaliti da smo dosad u humanitarne svrhe poklonili pozamašnu svotu novca (cca 35.000kn).Treba također istaknuti da smo u prošle 2 godine osvojili 3 trofeja (3.mjesto na turniru Jelsa 2011, 3.mjesto u ligi za sezonu 2011/2012 godine, 2.mjesto na turniru Stari Grad 2012.godine).
