3rd Santa Claus’s Reindeer Cup Checkers Tournament

Can reindeer play checkers? They can, but only in the Darłowo Municipality and only when assisted by Wind Service and „Żyj z energią”. On December 7, 2019, in the Rural Community Center in Jeżyczki, Darłowo Municipality, the 3rd Santa Claus’s Reindeer Cup Checkers Tournament was held.
