The members of chess club „Posavac“  from suburb area Ruščica, near Slavonski Brod, came to Medjugorje for the eleventh time. The chess players that came with members of their families took part in the evening prayer programme and they climbed Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain. Mato Opačak,the president of the club, said in his interview on radio station Mir Medjugorje that they come every year after the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This time, ten pilgrims came for the first time to Medjugorje. They were thrilled and told us that they will return the next year as well. Besides pilgrims from Croatia, at the end of August we registered groups from Italy, Austria, France, Ireland, the United States, Spain, Hungary, Ukraine, Germany, Canada, Lebanon, Malta and Poland.
