It's out of your hands, Uhu. We're all going to come anyway. -- Jugger Germany

Welcome to Järnsvenskan 2017

Hidden i the deep forests of Sweden lays the small town called Järnboås, where the heart of the Swedish jugger-community is located. With your help we can make it thrive even more!

Between 3-4 of June Järnsvenskan is going of at Finnsjöstrand. Saturday is set for the pools and Sunday is for finals. There will be a lot more activity like live music, pomfen-battles, BBQ and much much more.

There will be a small fee for the tournament this year to cover unexpected experiences, oh, I mean expenses. This fee will be on 25 Euro per team and can only be paid in advance.

We will be updating this continuously throughout the spring with all the necessary information and happenings.

Newsletter 4 maj for the jugger teams

Contact person:
Please ONLY contact me on any questions regarding the organization of the tournament, unless explicitely directed to someone else.
While I get great support for example with the bands, I am doing the complete main organization of the whole festival, graphics, print and so on alone.
Therefore should be the one who can help you best (also we avoid any confusion).
During the tournament, we will have more people who can help.
For the music, I have delegated the task to Christer Pilblad from Studiefrämjandet Lindesberg / Hillstreet as the contact person.

Please do NOT use facebook messenger for questions and stuff but send me an e-mail. Otherwise it gets too chaotic. We stick to that comms channel and the forum.

===IMPORTANT! LIFT Örebro-Järnboås ===
Note that you have to be at the tournament place on sunday around 10 o'clock. We have to start as early as possible to get through the schedule. you need around 1 hour from Gustavsvik camping to Järnboås by car.
Who needs a lift? Please mail me the number of persons who are not yet able to come to the tournament place, from Örebro.
Who has spare seats?
Please drop your info here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5838&p=83370#p83370

Guests of Metallsvenskan get discount at the camping place, which means:
2 nätter 275:- kr inkl bad
3 nätter 325:- Kr inkl bad
Please book in advance just to be sure. Bath is included again!
If you don't go to the festival but want to stay in Gustavsvik with discount, just drop me a note. I will see what I can do.
BUS: Not that the *bus transfer service* to Gustavsvik is NOT included. It also HAS to be booked *in advance*, here: //www.tickster.com/sv/events/xaeuc ... nskan-2016 (the Bus ticket costs 150kr + avgift, see / book here: //metallsvenskan.com/page/biljetter/ ).
Bus shuttle times: Thursday 15:00-18:00 / 22:00 – 23:30
Friday 16:00-20:00 / 00:00-02:00
Saturday 11:30-18:00 / 00:00-02:00

See e-mail, only respond there please.

Feel free to either send the money for additional players in advance (German account) or bring it in cash. Euro or Swedish kronor doesn't matter.
Yet please try to have the cash in the precise amount, it could become hard to have the right change otherwise.

== BBQ hamburgers
Bygdegårdsföreningen (the folk taking care of the place, which we get *for free*) and Järnboås IF will offer Hamburgers and other BBQ stuff during the tournament. Feel free to take your own food, of course, and don't forget a good supply of water. There is a tab available.

Please contact me if you wish to book breakfast at the place on monday morning. It is again offered by Bygdegårdsföreningen but requires preliminary booking. Price will be the same as before, 50:- sek.
NOTE: Last time, I had to pay for a breakfast that hadn't been taken/paid. We kindly ask you to have an eye on payment. I am considering payment in advance, but that would be to the Bygdegårdens bank account -- I will come back with more info IF enough people are interested in breakfast.

Up to now, only Valkyrie has booked (the west wing of the tournament place).
if you need a cabin, drop me a note soon. And the time you want to stay ... it might be hard to get a cabin for one night only, though.
But we have tents at the tournament place (nevertheless, bring your own if possible please)

Please bring your spars, and if you can bring more, that would be appreciated. We have some teams that can't take their spars with them and need to borrow. We have many yet more are not hurting ...

Rules are almost the same as in germany/Ireland. Any questions will be dealt with at Gustavsvik Camping/before the tournament begins. Here is the version in Swedish: //www.jugger.se/images/pdf/juggerregler.pdf

We have three fields to play on. Teams will be drawn in advance to cut down time (we have a tough schedule).

We will use the same system, TuGeNy, as last year, and a computer at the place.

== L E G A L == S T U F F ==
Some basic legal stuff here, just to be on the safe side. Feel free to ask if anything is unclear.

In short, photos taken on saturday/sunday might be used and displayed, and you are okay with that.
Note that by participating in the tournament, you agree that both photos and videos where you are displayed can be used and made public freely and both in print as digitally by the organizers (Järnboås IF, Svenska juggerförbundet, Uvbo/Ruben, Jaktfalkarna AB, Studiefrämjandet) without requiring further inquiry or consent, in connection with Jugger, the tournament, the participating music bands, Järnboås, Studiefrämjandet and other topics in connection with the event.
Of course, this applies only to material where the aforesaid organizations/persons own the required copyrights.
Of course we will not publish any personally "damaging" ones, and we also STRONGLY discourage posting privately any fun photos with drunk or otherwise incapable people! Don't do that, you can both do serious harm to the persons on the photos, to the event and last not least to yourself.

Note that you have to ask your personal insurance if harm is inflicted upon or by you during the matches. Be sure that you have a valid international insurance policy for such cases.
the organizers are not responsible, nor do they offer an insurance for all participants.

Note that teams with underage participants have to take care of the required parental consent (in writing and signed) and all other legal stuff associated with them. Note that the team or group the participant is traveling with is responsible for that person, NOT the organizers of the event.
It is our prerequisite as organizers that every team that has underage participants has already taken care of all those legal things, and most likely will not ask you to produce papers or control it.
The organizers are not responsible for any players, or visitors.


 Short update 21 januari 2016=> PLEASE SEND US A MAIL ADDRESS to contact you team directly. Thanks!<=
We already have got 17 teams registered for Järnsvenskan -- even from the US and Latvia, but of course also from Ireland and Germany as well. The 15 who registered first will be with us.
Also, you will soon receive a newsletter with further informations.
The presentation at Metallsvenskan is confirmed. The festival will be in a different place, but in Örebro as last year. See //www.metallsvenskan.se
We should even manage to pack some bands on the stage of Finnsjöstand, good ones from Örebro and Lindesberg, but also even a Heavy metal band from Berlin (all to be confirmed but realistic).
Festival T-shirts may also be done, more about that in the newsletter.
This time, we decided to take a small fee, as it has become usual in tournaments -- mostly so that we can be sure that registered teams will indeed turn up. It will be 5€ /player, payment for 5 players per team in advance until a set date, to make your registration valid. Otherwise waiting listed teams will change place with you.
Payment details and deadline will follow with the newsletter.
if you know any other teams interested, please tell them to register as quickly as possible, or contact me. Thanks!

We are really really happy that you want to join us at our beautiful lake-with-a-sauna-and-red-houses-place and Metallsvenskan!

We plan to have a Jugger presentation at the 30th of maj 2015, at the Metallsvenskan festival again!


Getting there and away

Easiest way is going by car. A train runs regularly to Stockholm and Mjölby. Booking through Tågkompaniet might save money. We will do a shuttle for those without cars on sunday, to get them from Örebro to Järnboås. From Järnboås there is a bus line two times a day to Nora, from where regular buses depart to Örebro. For renting cars, the Statoil gas stations offer not only very good conditions, but are also open long in the night and on week-ends. The bigger car rentals usually close in the evening and on week-ends, and are expensive.


We would also like to ask you for ...





Please wait booking festival tickets. We are speaking with the organizer to get a discount. Those only takling part in the presentation will have free entry shortly before it starts. Just for a rough orientation, the discount tickets have been at 495 Kronor (ca. 52 Euro ) this year for the whole week-end. Let's see whether we get a better discount.



Gustavsvik Camping offers a special discount for festival guests fr-so, both nights for 265:- kr alltogether, so say if you are attending the festival when you book. Booking through //www.gustavsvik.se/?page_id=52 One great thing: Entrance fee to the really stunning tropical pool area is included! It might be possible to get private accomodation through our Örebro juggers. Contact Ein Uhu if you are interested.

:!: Note that you can camp for one night in the same place almost everywhere in the country where there are no houses. I recommend to look out for „Badplats“ for these are usually bathing places with fireplace, simple toilets and table, right at wonderful lakes.



Sunday, 31st may, 12:00, Finnsjöstrand Järnboås



This is a day-without-a-night tournament.

Much more teams have registered than expected. But lucky for us, the daylight lasts for almost the whole night. So even if we start at 12 pm, we can play as long as we wish. Week days are more of a theoretical concept at those times.

Get ready folks.



The tournament is free. Participants in the Jugger presentation will be on the guest list for saturday. A tip would of course be very welcome to support our expenses. We consider putting up a moose skull like in the film (well, that wasn't a moose … anyway.)



Our rules are mainly the same as the German ones taken with a grain of salt, with Irish double.

:!: The rules ⇒ can be downloaded here (PDF, and yes, in Swedish).



Please bring your own gear if possible. But fear not: We do have enough spare Pompfen to lend you, so no problem if it isn't possible!



All spar types that are allowed in Germany are allowed with us as well (the 5 basic types). The spars will be checked by Uhu and some helpers. We will execise a good measured tolerance regarding the build, we will not run around with millimeter measures. Any safety issues will be taken seriously, though. Padding must suffice and the spar has to be overall okay, the Pompfe has not to be excessively heavy and so forth. Bamboo has to be coverd by layers of tape around it or a plastic tube.



The main focus of the referees should be regarding unfelt/misjudged hits, (in-) valid qwik point placement etc. and moderating. Generally, the teams have the first word and if they can't aggree, then the referees will reach a decision. Players are responsible for a good game themselves, not referees.



The tournament is free so please take care of sufficient food&drink for your team. We should knock up some coffee and cake. Both festival and camping is located in Örebro so shopping should not be a problem. There is a small shop in Järnboås, but closed on sundays.



:!: To drink alcohol in public is prohibited in Sweden. There are own pub areas on the festival grounds but it costs, dear, it costs … Furthermore, it has not been and should not be a problem where you stay overnight, not to put too a fine point to it. No alcohol at the tournament of course, we are hitting each other with clubs you know.


Shirts and patches

On a side note, I will do both a shirt and a patch for this year's Metallsvenskan. The shirt will resemble the one of 2014 but with the updated teams. I will see to it that we get reasonable prices again, with a little plus to support Swedish Jugger.



:!: By taking part in the tournament you give your consent that it is fine with you to use, distribute, save and edit photos that are taken of you during the tournament in connection with Jugger (of course no morally offensive pictures). If you disaggree, please note that to the tournament organizers in advance, before the tournament begins. BUT PLEASE PLEASE DON'T DO THAT, because it is hell of a lot of (free, unpaid) work that takes time from the really important stuff!


Archive – old topics

Battlecry clip please

:!: If you are coming with a team: Please send me a short videoclip of your team doing a team-battlecry, close-up. I would love to include it into a video that I consider to do for Metallsvenskans website. The battlecry itself should be not more than 5-6 seconds, the clip should be a bit longer to have enough room for cutting. The team should fill the whole frame, so a really close up take would be perfect. The video quality is not that important; better to have a pocket camera or smartphone quality clip than no clip at all!

Logos please

:!: For the design of the t-shirt i would need high-res imagesof your team logos in black&white. If possible not with too fine details because those might not be printable. A moderate level of details is fine of course, see the Wild Geese logo for max detail level – the birds details would probably be missing in the end except the white head part.

Fine for example are:

Filetype: png, tif, svg, eps
Resolution: 300 dpi min., 600 dpi optimum, 1200 dpi max.
Size: around 10×10 cm
Colors: Monochrome / B&W, no shades

Thanks in advance!
