Wear something Lithuanian!!

To honour and celebrate our wonderful Lithuanian heritage, Kovas is hosting a traditional Užgavėnės Winter Festival at the Sydney Lithuanian Club on Saturday 25 July from 6pm. Come and help Kanapinis scare away Winter’s friend Lašininis and encourage Spring to arrive early!

ENTRY IS FREE to everyone and we will have some traditional events to help us do battle with winter. Children are encouraged to attend! Dress in casual clothes - but we are encouraging everyone to wear something Lithuanian. It might be a tie, a belt, or a scarf or your amber jewellery. Geez - you can even wear full national dress if you feel like it!!

Dinner will be available from the Club kitchen (own purchase) and will include traditional pancakes and other foods typical of the Festival.

If you wish to attend, or book a table please contact Peter Gustafson at kovas.sports@gmail.com

15-16 August - Mini Svente & Daniel Sepokas Supporters Weekend

In partnership with Melbourne Varpas, Kovas will be hosting a "Mini Svente" in beautiful Albury NSW on 15 and 16 August. On top of the chance to see our southern friends from Vilkas, Varpas or Vytis, we've chosen a date that coincides with a home game for one of Kovas' favourite sons, Daniel Sepokas as he leads the Albury-Wodonga Bandits on the road to the play-offs in the SEABL Basketball League.

The Mini Svente will feature Men's Basketball Games and pending attendance, Women's Basketball, Unisex Basketball, Lawn Bowls and Golf. We will be circulating more information in coming weeks, including accommodation options. 

Importantly, these games are open to non-Lithuanian Club members!


65th Sporto Svente - Gold Coast, Queensland

The 65th Sporto Svente will be held at Queensland's Gold Coast in 2015 and will build on the hugely successful Svente that Brisbane Baltija hosted there in 2013. Baltija are again hosting and their plans and preparations are well advanced, including the use of a Facebook page to help promote the events and provide further information. If you would like to particpate as a Kovas member, send us an email to kovas.sports@gmail.com
