U. S. Steel Balloon Cup

Seven countries, 85 balloonists and twenty balloons took part last weekend in the 11th edition of the annual international balloon fiesta named U. S. Steel Balloon Cup 2004. Apart from the balloonists from the Kosice Balloon Club, the skies over Kosice featured teams from Holland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria and the USA. Awaiting the winners of the ballooning competition was the U. S. Steel Kosice President's Cup. The fiesta also involved many associated cultural events and competitions for the citizens of Kosice.

U. S. Steel Kosice at world-class trade fairs again

Berlin, Germany was the venue from June 15th-17th for the 9th edition of the annual international specialized trade fair CWIEME 2004 (Coil Winding, Insulation and Electrical Manufacturing Exhibition). For the third time now our Company presented isotropic sheets for the electrotechnical industry on an independent stand measuring 38 square meters in area.
At the same time U. S. Steel Kosice was also present at the International Metallurgy, Engineering and Technologies Fair, taking place in Poznan, Poland from June 14th-17th. During the Fair, U. S. Steel Kosice hosted the third of its annual "Wine Goblet" events for business partners and other guests. This was an opportunity for Company representatives to endorse the cooperation to date with our Polish clients, and at the same time to discuss a series of issues related to already accomplished as well as potential commercial transactions.

Proceeds for children in Uzhorod

On Tuesday of last week, June 22nd, to mark the third anniversary of the Rotary International Charter, a charity concert was held in the House of Art under the patronage of the Mayor of Kosice Zdenko Trebula, at which music-lovers enjoyed a performance by the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. The proceeds from this concert, which was also supported as a sponsor by U. S. Steel Kosice, have been deposited in the account of the 21st Elementary School in Uzhorod, Ukraine, which uses Slovak language as its teaching medium.

Another business managers' meeting

Last week in Kosice the American Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia organized another in its series of events aimed at supporting the development of the Kosice region. These are meetings for managers of important Slovak and foreign companies, among them U. S. Steel Kosice, together with local government representatives, whose objective is to direct the attention of foreign investors towards Slovakia's eastern region.

Managers' tennis tournament

Recreational tennis is gaining more and more enthusiasts among our Company's employees, in particular its managers. The recent doubles competition in the Municipal Park for the title of U. S. Steel Kosice Champions was entered by 28 pairs. The four pairs who got through elimination rounds to reach the semi-finals were Kyle Austin Frascarelli - Ralph Corrente, Ladislav Volavka - Bartolomej Kundis, Miroslav Madar - Juraj Bolf and Marcel Palai - Robert Kopf.
The finals were the true climax for the best pairs in the tournament. Madar and Bolf found themselves in a similar situation on the courts like last year, only then they were beaten by the subsequent winning pair Pavia - Kmec. This year they left nothing to chance, playing with focus and emphasis on net strokes, and in the fight for gold they comfortably defeated Frascarelli and Corrente 6:2. The next upcoming tennis tournament comprising men's and women's singles as well as mixed doubles will be taking place during the U. S. Steel Kosice Summer Olympiad.
