Minarc got wings at Kemppi summer party

The verdant park of the Kemppi Okeroinen production plant was the venue for the Kemppi summer party games and sweepstakes this year as well.
Since we were in Finland, the nature of the tongue-in-cheek game was a bit peculiar. The participants had to throw a Minarc welding machine as far as they could. The welding machine was of a stripped-down variant, though, and the throwing style was free, as long as it was done underhand. Women and men had their own series.

There was no limit to the number of throws, but a fee of a few euros had to be paid for each attempt. The fees and the profit of the sweepstakes are channelled to help the victims of the Pakistani floodings. When Kemppi Oy, as usual, doubled the outcome of the relief collection the sum rose to 2500 euros in total.

The women’s series was won with a throw of 10.35 metres. In men’s series the furthest throw was an impressive 19.60 metres
