Although Latvia might be new to the jugger stage, we do have something to show! And why not to come and see it?
We would like to invite all of you to our first international tournament: Latvian Jugger Open!
The tournament will be held in the town of "Ragana". (Latvian word for Witch). The venue is going to be located just 20 kilometers away from the Baltic sea and even less - 15 kilometers from the beautiful Gauja's National Park.
You can get to the venue by using public transport. A city bus can take you straight from the airport to the central bus station, from where it's another bus ride straight to the town. Buses, headed for "Ragana", leave about once or twice an hour.
We would recommend coming with your own car, or renting one here, however. Equipment transportation might be rather inconvenient, by using public transport. If you need to rent a car, you can do so from any major car rental company, or use our local version of "craigslist" to get one much cheaper.
The whole event is planned to last from 24th to 27th of August with the main tournament being held on 26th (Saturday).
From 24th to 25th we are organizing sightseeing around Gauja's National Park, Turaida's Castle, and Sigulda.
For those, who would prefer to explore Latvia in a little bit more active way, why not to have paintball match or try out the tree climbing track "MeÂÂÂakaķis" in Sigulda? For these "side events" we will require a separate signup, since not everyone coming to the tournament will want to take part.
As for the main event: the tournament starts on 26th of August at 10:00 and ends when all the games are done. The tournament format is that of a group stage, to find out the teams that qualify for the playoffs, followed by playoffs right after.
On the Sunday 27th we are doing something new. THE FIRST EVER (Umn, is it? We hope it is...) beach jugger tournament in the world!
The game rules will be exactly the same, but have you played jugger on sand? If you haven't, you should!
We do take in consideration the fact, that most people will be exhausted from the main tournament, so the beach tournament will be much shorter. Single elimination bracket and participation is not mandatory, even if you did play in the main tournament, as this tournament will give no league points. So for those, who are not too competitive it will be a regular day on a beach, but with jugger in it.
As for the logistics. Accommodation is planned at the venue - either sports hall of "Krimuldas Vidusskola", or you should grab tents to build somewhere on the school grounds. There are few hotels in Sigulda and Saulkrasti, if there is a need for one.
Catering: Currently centralized catering is not planned, so every person should take care of himself. But i can tell you, that you do not need to worry too much about it, as within 10 minute walk from the school there are few cafes and grocery stores. In Latvia we use Euro, so for most of you currency should not be a problem.
As for the expenses. Prices in Latvia are rather low. Transportation from the airport to the venue by public transport cost less than 4 euros one way. Daily food expenses shouldn't go far above 5 euros per day.
As we will have to pay the school some rent money, a payment of 5 euros per participant will be required, but more precise details will come later with newsletters to the team captains.
Any questions can be sent to Egotheist2@gmail.com or asked straight on Jugger Latvia facebook page.
