Summer is almost over but you haven’t gotten enough of it? Seems like it was great but still something missing? Maybe you dream of an exciting adventure as a closure? Well, we are happy to announce, that there is one made right for you!

Welcome to Latvian Jugger Open 2019.

When? – From 22nd August till 25th August

What have we planned for you?

Great game, even greater company of people, sun, camp, beach, fresh air and all the other things necessary for the perfect event. Lots of people you know from Jugger clubs all around the world and of course, some new faces to get to know.

22nd till 23th Arriving and Preparty

Time to arrive and step a foot in one of the greatest and most beautiful countries in the World. This will be a two-day preparation for the tournament with some wild adventures. Participants will have an opportunity to reunite with old Jugger friends and get acquainted with newest Jugger lovers. Fun, jokes, laugh and great time guaranteed. P.S. Beware of mosquitos, they love to play Jugger as well and they are dirty players.

24th – The big day of Jugger tournament The main reason to visit Latvia is finally here – The Big Tournament day. Teams will be divided in smaller groups which will qualify for playoffs. Time for games to start will be in the morning, around 10 o`clock and will finish after the “Team of the day” will be announced.

25th – Beach day If you were here the last time, you know that beach Jugger is even better than the classic one. If you haven’t tried it before – here's your chance. In other words – this will be a day at the beach with sun, warm wind, cocktails and swimming suits. A day to relax and prepare for the way home. Considering that most of the people could be exhausted from the main tournament, this will be much shorter - with a single elimination bracket. If you prefer to watch - go on, this is not mandatory and is made for fun. {A more accurate plan of the event, pre-party activities and more details will be published in time, depending on the number of applicants.} Where? – In Latvia of course! But if you need to know more details, here they are: The main tournament will take place at Hunter's club “Markulici” (GPS: 57.3005 24.9087). Best arriving option would be by car. This will give you an opportunity to do some exploring around. However, it is possible to arrive by a public bus as well. “Markulici” has a camping site, so the overnight will be in tents by a fireplace. If you love camping, this is a great oportunity to stargaze, cook your meals on a campfire and enjoy the end of summer in fresh air, away from city polution and noise. If you are not into camping that much and decide against feeding the mosquitoes, there is a tavern approximately 2 km from the camping site, which can provide you accommodations for an extra cost, of course. All the participants can order some food and drinks before the event. Order will be transferred to the camping site, so you will save some troubles of thinking about this. For more details please contact us before hand via e-mail: jugger.latvia@gmail.com . Considering that this is a hunter`s club, everyone who dares will have a chance to practice some shooting (unfortunately this is not included in participation cost).

You may apply team until 31.07.2019.

For any further questions, recommendations or other nice words please contact us either via email: jugger.latvia@gmail.com our Facebook page: Jugger Latvia or main organiser Roberts Silis directly.


Newsletter 16.06.2019

Greetings juggers of the world!

As they say - better late than never. Finally first newsletter of Latvian Jugger Open (LJO) is here. It did take a while, but not because we were lazy. It was because there was quite a bunch of things we needed to sort out and decide. And now that most of it is done, we can jump in.

First I'll start with things that were known already:
Location: hunter's club Markulici near Gauja's National park.
Dates: 23.08-25.08
River, fireplace and good time: Yes
Beach jugger on Sunday: Definitely!

Now about things that were bit less clear up to now:


Friday: Few weeks ago, I posted a poll regarding which activity would people prefer before LJO. And the votes were really close. I will actually say identical. So the plan for Friday is this. Early in the morning we jump into the boats right at the camping site and row down Brasla until it enters Gauja.
Once we get out, those, for whom the boat ride would be enough activity can return to the camping. Those, who will be more eager to continue nature exploring, will proceed on foot for few more hours through the forests of Gauja's valley.

Thursday: Since we are planning to get up early on Friday, this is when we would recommend arriving at the camping. Obviously, if it's not possible, you can arrive later - right before the tournament.
In case if you arrive earlier on Thursday, however, one of Latvian juggers has volunteered to take you on a short tour around the town.

Now regarding the actual tournament:

The tournament will be held on Saturday.
We should be able to set up 4 or more fields, in case if we have that many teams signed up.
We're aiming to have 5-7 games per team on Saturday.

For Sunday, aka Baltic Beach Jugger Tournament we shall follow tradition set up two years ago and play a ribbon tournament. Meaning, teams will get selected and mixed up randomly. And in the end all will be solved by one big zombie game.

Now regarding other things.

We talked with a local caterer, and they agreed to provide warm meal on Saturday evening after all the games are done for around 5 euros per person. However this should be pre-ordered and they had a condition, that at least 25 people make the order.

We have listened to feedback people gave us after the previous tournament and one point, which did pop up was a place where people could clear their fatigue away. Swimming in river can be cold and mobile showers are extremely expensive. So we're getting an option, which is far better than any of the other two. Portable sauna. It should be available from Friday night until Sunday night. At the camping grounds.

And the last point for the newsletter is the participation fee. Participation fee this year is going to be 20 euros per person. This fee covers the rent of camping, rent of portable sauna, firewood for sauna and bonfires, as well as tons of other small things. Payment should be made until 31st of July as we need to pay for the sauna, camping and other things beforehand.

In case if you want to order the warm meals add 5 euros to the payment per person and in the payment details post how many orders you are making. In case if less than 25 people will make the order, we will simply return the money to you.

Regarding payment for boat ride, more information will follow later, regarding when, how much and how.

Participation fee should be transferred to the following bank account. Also, please indicate which team and how many players are you paying for.
Teamwertung: 8 Punkte
