9 courts were set up as the organizers provided all participants with t-shirts, gifts, special souvenirs, while balls were donated by the Russian Volleyball Federation. Actually it was much more than just a Volleyball tournament, as the festival included some more contests, such as rope pulling, valenok throwing and dogsledding, all entertainments traditionally practiced by Russian people during the Christmas time. Hot tea and porridge with meat were prepared by a camp-kitchen at the expense of the organizers too.
