Everything in this competition, continued Adzkiyauz, was in accordance with the provisions of the Indonesian Rafting Federation (FAJI), starting from the completeness of race equipment to race rules. Uniquely this competition was not held properly on a rafting track but on UMM lake.
"There are not many rafting competitions held on campus lakes. UMM may be the only one held, "Adzkiyauz explained. UMM Lake was quite wide as a race arena. With a depth of about 2.5 meters, it is located fairly safe and comfortable because it is located between lecture buildings.
