SP Bike hike

On the evening of Friday 31st May, nine Starshi Plastuny met at Settlers Arms Inn in St Albans, approximately 2hrs northwest of Sydney. They had all committed to take on a cycling challenge, which they affectionately called the 'Tour de Farce'. Following a few drinks and a hearty pub meal, the team ventured across the road to a park to set up tents. The group then enjoyed each other's company and the warmth of the vatra on the sandy shores of the Macdonald River until the early hours of the morning.

A slow start on Saturday morning was helped along by a big breakfast cooked by the Stepovi Vidmy in the group. Fed and energised, the group set out on the first leg of the trip along 21km of dirt road through quiet farming country to the Wiseman's Inn. With kind weather and high spirits, the first leg was completed in a relaxed 2hrs which included regular rest stops and impromptu games of roadside frizbee.

Still full from a huge breakfast, lunch at Wiseman's Inn comprised of light meals that were heavy on the garlic. Saddle soreness and overfilled stomachs resulted in a slow start to the 21km second leg of the trip however dark clouds on the horizon motivated the riders the cycle on. The team made it back to the Settlers Arms Inn in 2.5 hrs, just in time to pack up their gear before the heavens opened up. The trip was wrapped up with coffees in the pub while watching the rain fall outside and planning the next SPs adventure.

Our last skhodyny before the Easter holidays seemed like the perfect time for a cooking masterclass. No strangers to a Plast kitchen, our chefs for the day were novachky Ola and Nadia Sapun. Earning their yellow hustky in late 2012, the twins were eager for a cooking challenge. They'd shown stamina during their beep tests, dedication through their Plast basic training, and culinary know-how at last year's carols concert. But would that be enough to get through their final cooking challenge?

Sestrychka Lisa (st. pl. Lisa Chomyn) had set them their toughest test yet: scones. And they didn't just have to be cooked perfectly, hygienically prepared and ready in time for a birthday celebration; these high tea classics needed to be delicious.

Under the careful supervision of Bratchyk Markiyan (st. pl. Markiyan Wojewidka) and Sestrychka Lisa, our novachky worked tirelessly to prepare each batch. The smell of baking was in the air, and all was going well. Until: the inspektsia.

After performing an OH&S assessment of the food preparation area, each novachka was questioned so as to ascertain their
1. understanding of kitchen safety and hygiene practices;
2. familiarity with a food preparation environment and relevant equipment contained therein;
3. knowledge of the recipe currently being followed, including importance of key ingredients; and
4. ability to demonstrate hospitality techniques appropriate for a Ukrainian hosting/entertaining environment.

Having impressed the inspector, it was time to pull the scones out of the oven. After checking they were safe, our novachky invited all present to sample their baking efforts.

Three hungry vyhovnyky and one mystery judge were selected to taste-test the scones. Loving served with butter or jam and a mug of milk, four scones awaited our panel's verdict. The results:

With most judges happy, our chefs called in the illustrious caretaker of our domivka, for some singing of многая літа and birthday scones. Pan Viktor and all guests enjoyed a skhodyny-style high tea, and even our third judge was spotted enjoying himself.

After clearing and washing up, Nadia and Ola had met all outstanding requirements for their cooking badge.

Many thanks to our chefs and culinary mentors!
