Due to... funsized numbers of attendees the third Jugger Ireland tournement was held in Fairview last week, with two teams competeing. Spirits were high and the weather was beautiful despite heavy wind which rendered the use of chains impossible. Two teams were selected and the match was progressing wonderfully until two injuries and one infirmity put an end to the game. Last known score was 6/4 against Mark's team. The game was followed up by a barbeque and good times were had by all. There will be a mini tournement (twice the size of the real one) with the Australians on September 6th at the same location as a warm up for Berlin. As always anyone is welcome.
I've uploaded some photos of the location for the Irish Tournement on our tournement facebook page. Irish Tournement Facebook
I'm also proud to announce the launch of our new Jugger Ireland website New Website
. There is a section there where you can RSVP
for the tournement if you don't like facebook. Also anyone who would like a precise address for the tournement email
me and I'll send you a Google Maps link, Shona asked me not to post it directly up on the internet. Hope to see you all at the end of June!
