After the Komsomol trade Union cross, the regional team took part in the Republican competition in Almaty, where it took 2nd place (the first place was taken by the team from Karaganda, and the third place was taken by the team from Almaty). Due to the fact that the team from Karaganda had objective reasons for not participating in the all-Union competitions, by the decision of the Kazakh Republican Committee of the trade Union, a team from the city of Ust-Kamenogorsk was sent to this event. At this competition, the team from Ust-Kamenogorsk took 8th place out of 16 teams. But it was a great success for the team, because the team still has such cities as Krasnoyarsk, Yaroslavl, etc. The team from the Kazakh SSR performed well, there were also prize-winners of the competition.
