Jugger is coming to Colorado in the US!

Beitrag von Dougie » Fr 8. Feb 2013, 05:39

Hello Everyone!

I'm Doug, and I wanted to stop by the forums and let everyone know that myself and a few friends will be starting up Jugger here in Denver Colorado.

I was first introduced to Jugger in Amtgard (we call it Jugging) in 1998 in El Paso, Texas and have been playing the Amtgard version of the rules ever since. I have been in foam fighting groups for almost 18 years, and have always taken the combat more serious that the role play, and would like to expand my horizons in a newer, more modern sport.

What we have decided on so far is playing by the German Rules, however our hit locations will be like the Brisbane Rules (Above Elbows/Knees). I also make foam weapons professionally, and will be aiding in all of the construction to ensure that everyone has safe gear on the field. We are really excited to be joining up with this community, and cannot wait for our first matches we can send lots of videos of!

Our ultimate dream of this is to raise money to come to Germany and play in the league tournament there!

If you have any advice or suggestions, I would love to hear them, I also have a lot of weapon fighting and weapon building experience that I would share as well.

I am really excited to be here and look forward to meeting all of you!

Doug

Hej Dougie,

really great to hear of you! I would be very grateful if you could let us know how it is going with you in the US -- also please consider writing on The international Jugger Blog ( http://juggerblog.net ) , drop me a note if you would like to participate so I can create an account for you.
And, of course, if time has come, an update for the free Jugger ebook would also be excellent!

Salutations, friend!! Always good to hear that the beautiful game is spreading.

And Raymond meant to say "I can't wait", by the way.

Thank you for all the warm welcomes! We are going to meet up at the end of this month to go over the rules. We will be making pompfen during that time as well, but using the same materials I use when I make the LARP weapons I sell. Its a high quality foam and thick fiberglass tubes and they will last forever. I am most excited to build a chain! We use flails with 18" chains on them, and they are useless at range, and hardly anyone likes being chain haha!

If you would like to check it out, I have a website, www.foamforge.net, where I sell my full contact weapons.

These are not videos of Jugger, but of an Amtgard Tournament not too long ago. In our area, we treat foam combat more like a sport than a LARP, and there are some similarities in our weapons. THe fighters range from beginners to experts. Let me know what you think!!
Also, I am wearing a yellow bandana with a black tinic and the colored back area in the video. :)
