2015 Jugger!

Tuesday, 20 January 2015. - Wendy

Jugger has begun for 2015 in Canberra, Toowoomba and Newcastle already with Brisbane looking forward to their first official game of the year on the 2nd of February. There are many exciting things happening in all things Jugger Australis!

 

January greets out first international jugger visitor with games in Brisbane on the 25th of January to show Austria how we play. 

 

2015 will be a year of tournaments with so few long weekends, cities need to claim dates for hosting ASAP. 

 

There are still rumours of Newcastle juggers visiting Brisbane (and Toowoomba) in February. Dates to be announced soon. 

 

Invasion of America *cough* TOURNAMENT in Denver, Colorado June 6th, planning is well underway - if you are interested in attending and have the money see the forum post. A side-trip to Sweden for the Metal Jugger fest the week before is on the cards for those with the cash! I highly recommend it - it is amazing!

 

New Zealand have asked for a tournament in the first half of 2015 - anyone interested in doing this or attending, the AJL national committee (Wendy, Wolfman, Cake, Haz) are organising this with juggeroz/Adam. 

 

Coming in with the new year is updated Spar Specifications. The work-in-progress has been open for comment for 2 months and is now in final stages. Ideally this will come into effect February. 

 

Fantastic news! A grant has been awarded to the Brisbane Jugger club. We are very proud to have received our first grant! Kudos to the people involved in making this happen.

World Masters Results 2014

Tuesday, 16 September 2014. - Claire Reeves

Villingen

Congratulations to the Redbacks on their ranking in Villingen for the Jugger World Masters 2014! They came in 25th (top half!) and beat their ranking from 2012. 

 

A shout-out to the previously untested Set-backs.  59th out of 65 for a team formed by players from both north and south of the equator, some of whom had never met until just before the tournament.

 

Redbacks

 

The final four this year were:

Rigor Mortis 1(Berlin, Germany)               1st place
Tercios Espaniol (Murcia, Spain)              2nd place
Zonenkinder (Jena
, Germany)                  3rd place
Die Leere Menge (
Greifswald, Germany)   4th place

 

I can’t wait to see what new mini-games, techniques and spar construction tips come back to AussieLand with our players when they return to Brisbane and Canberra.

 

Well done, all!

2013-2014 Review and Thank you!

Friday, 22 August 2014. - Wendy

Over the last year, many projects have been on the go for the Australian Jugger League that deserve a bit of recognition to the people who spent their time and effort to get them off the ground and happening successfully. I would like to take this stolen opportunity to do my best to ensure that everyone's help is recognised. Not everything is listed, I tried to group items as well. 

This should also help ...

2014 - Let's get started

Sunday, 09 February 2014. - simon feeney

Welcome from the Grand Poobah

The first game of 2014 for Brisbane will be played this afternoon (Canberra and other regions haven't had to hide from the heat as much as we have) and we're looking forward to seeing a lot of happy faces, today(and every Sunday afternoon).

 

There's a lot of things that your Management Committee have already been working on, in the background for this coming year. The new look website, spar improvements, rules revisions, new logo, promotions and reviewing our constitution have all been part of our summer "break".

It’s a Nice Place for Jugger

Saturday, 25 January 2014. - Brendon Smith

By Cake and Soul

 

Toward the twilight months of 2013, a missive was received by The Australian Jugger League requesting representatives to run a Jugger field at a festival celebrating the end of one year and the beginning ofthe next.  Six Juggers answered the call, three from Brisbane and three from Canberra, volunteering to display their prowess and show people the way of the one true dog skull.

Monday, 25 November 2013. - Wendy


On the dark and lonely night of Tuesday the 19th of November fiend and Wendy wandered out to Eagle Farm with the aid of a bus. We were searching for.... a space... and like minded people, what we found surpassed our expectations.
