Jugger Tournament in Berlin: all 4 countries will be there in 2008

Friends of jugger may look forward to 2008: This summer, at the 13th and 14th of September, all four active Jugger countries will be present at the Jugger Tournament 2008 in Berlin.
Denmark and Ireland want to come, and even Australia has put a team together and will travel all the way to challenge the German Juggers on the field! There might even join us someone from overseas, but that is not clear yet ...
Any other country putting a team together is of course very welcome to join us, too, just contact us, ideally via the international forum or Mail or PM to Ein Uhu for the international co-ordination or also Lester for Berlin-specific questions.

This will be the first truly world-wide Jugger tournament in history, so get prepared ;-)
As always, we (Berlin) will be able to provide accomodation for the tournament, but we also invite all Juggers to join our camp, which will be at the tournament grounds - this year had been excellent, with a nice barbecue evening and night-time "pompfing" ...

An Introduction on our Jugger - under construction - 0.75a

I have edited the little, and very amateur, "What is Jugger"-vid further (for example, replaced the tournament clip by a better one), though it still lacks good footage; as soon as I get my hands on some (and have time), I will enhance it ... promised ... well, here is the preview.
Thanks to Brian "Sonic Clang" Kline for the excellent music, which he had originally written for Doom3.

EDIT: Here is the new version, 0.8a (added spoken comments)

10th annivercary of the Jugger society in Berlin

First tournament 1998Last saturday, the Berlin Juggers celebrated the first decade of the Jugger society in Berlin. The first tournament had been held at the Mauerpark in 1998. Now, ten years and ten tournaments later, the Jugger e.V. Berlin met at the c-base, the crashed space station, buried in the grounds below Berlin Mitte. In the flickering lights, surrounded by long-discarded control panels and abandoned alien technology, Jugger veterans and young warriors feasted, supported by two excellent live bands, slideshows with lots and lots of photos featuring Jugger over the years, and a selection of old and new Jugger videos. And once again, Lüneburg made the (quite long) way to us and joined into the event.

It had been a great party. A moment to remember ...

Erstes gemeinsames deutsches Jugger-Regelwerk online

For our international readers:
You may use the link at the bottom-right corner of this entry to switch to the English version!
There is just a little bug, it should say "English, German" instead of "English, English".

Erstes bundesweites Jugger - RegelwerkEndlich ist es soweit: Nach einer ausführlichen Besprechung im Drachenblut-Forum ist nun dank dem Einsatz mehrerer Sportbegeisterter (oh Wunder, sogar aus Berlin und Hamburg
zugleich) das erste Jugger-Regelwerk als PDF verfügbar, das die Spiel-Optionen der meisten derzeit aktiven Städte mit einschließt. Wie es in der Natur der Sache liegt, wird sich auch dieses weiter erweitert werden, wachsen und sich verändern. Erst einmal ist dabei aber eine gute Übersicht und Grundlage geschaffen!

Das Layout ist auch noch nicht ganz perfekt, der Textwust stellte auf die Schnelle eine kleine Herausforderung dar ... also bitte keine Buchsatzansprüche ...

Wünsche wohl zu pompfen!
