The Greens open their doors to a new dimension of the castells
Before 12 noon the pillars were entering the Plaza de la Vila. The three casteller groups; the Castellers de Vilafranca, the Capgrossos de Mataró and the Children of Tarragona arrived with the desire to carry out their great challenges. The performance began with Els Segadors, and when a few minutes passed from the start time, the pineapples began to be assembled. Few people expected that it would be a performance that would make history.
The draw, held on Monday, had ruled that the Castellers de Vilafranca would open the day. The Greens had it clear, their goal was to re-download a castle of 10 and be able to, at least try, the pd9fmp. The Castellers de Vilafranca did not think twice and started with a 3d10fm, which when they entered seventh suffered two stumbles, which made the children back down. In the second round they repeated the castle. He went up with some nervousness, and they managed to charge him, but right after he jumped through the sixth floor. In the third round came the great moment of the day, the attempt by pd9fmp. The foot was mounted quickly, but when the fifth came up they decided that he did not show good sizes, and they threw him down. At that moment the struts and handcuffs sank. They did not want to risk more than necessary, and they bet on the 2d9fm, which went safely up to the children's entrance, when the wives had to work hard to unload it. Thus, they gained confidence to try pd9fmp again. In the fourth round they returned ready to make history, and they did! The Castellers de Vilafranca carried the pd9fmp for the first time in the history of the human towers. The square went crazy, and one entered an unknown dimension in this world. So he decided to end the performance. Those of Penedes showed all over the world that this cliff is possible, and furthermore, it looked like it could be unloaded.
The Children of Tarragona were second. The mattresses did not start off on the right foot, as they made a dismounted attempt of 5d8. Fighters, such as the Children, in the second round they repeated him. The castle climbed well, but in the unloaded it showed some nervousness. Still, a dose of morale for those in the striped shirt. In the third round of castells they decided on the 3d9f, a structure that they had already downloaded and uploaded this year. The castle climbed with a certain nervousness, closed by the upper floors, and when the deuces were already out, a third ended up sinking. It seemed that the Children were doing the epic of unloading it, but there was no gas. In the fourth round they decided not to risk any more, and made the 4d8, which was left to them as a dismounted attempt. In round five they ended up with a nice 4d8. Bittersweet taste for the colchoneros who wanted to be able to unload the magic triplet, which had shown guarantees in the different tests they carried out. The group leader of the Children of Tarragona, Alfredo González, was "proud" of how they had worked this season, acknowledging that he would have liked to bring something else to the square.
The group leader in the striped shirt encouraged the gang to continue working, and to continue with the different paths that have been opened this year, with a view to the next season. It should be noted that the Children of Tarragona still have the performance of Altafulla next weekend to finish this year. From here, if nothing changes, the colchoneros will have to elect a new Board of Directors and Technical.
The Capgrossos from Mataró were the ones that started the best. Those of the maresme returned to unload a very good 5d8. In the second round they faced the great challenge of the day: 3d9f, which this year they had not yet downloaded. And he didn't seem like the first, they unloaded him with great solvency. They ended the performance with a good 4d8.
Good performance by the one from the maresme who added their first castle of 9 of the season, and gained confidence to continue next year.
