After two day's of learning and practing,we heard really good feedback from VI people.They said there was not much they could do everyday,sometimes they just listen to the news on the phone ,televison or chat with some friends normally.Most of them can't paly Goalball or other blind sports because of body condition.So what they looking for is a sport like Showdown."Simple and Charming",said one of the them,"we are having fun". Fun is a word they couldn't have much time of the life,but what we doing and trying have made them know what ezactly fun is.
