Style: massive bofferointi
Once again a group of enterprising people have gathered, to host a memorial event for the (in)famous uprising of "Jüriöö" which took place in 14th. century Estonia.
On behalf of them, it is my pleasure to announce to you this annual and by far the biggest boffer event in Estonia. This years event is the fourth of a the popular series.
Last years event, was the place for the first contact between our two boffer cultures.
- KeisariP and his four brave pioneers joined the Estonians cause, to help to free the ancient Vaiga county form Teutonic enslavement. Unfortunately the Germans had massed an unseen force of Brothers and Crusaders to the small Kassinurme castle and where able to thwart the efforts of the combined Estonian, Novgorodian and (small but significant) Finnish forces.
This year, all odds are open again and the battle for Pagan freedom or Christian enlightenment will rage once more.
This years Jüriöö will be held on 19-20th. of April in Kassinurme, near Jõgeva - the same place where last years Jüriöö and Nordic Equinox where held, so there should be plenty of people amidst you, who know exactly where it is and how to get there.
The event will be absolutely free for any and every Finnish participant. That includes the game and up to 3 meals (depending on when you'll arrive). So you can spend the extra money on ferry tickets. The conditions for lodgings will be the same, so bring your tent and any extra supplies you think you might need.
Last year about 400 participants registered to the event. This years registration started a couple of days ago and already there are nearly a hundred names. You can follow up on the actual list of names (updated roughly every night at 00:00) here:
Jüriöö 2008 participants
(Un)forutnately this year I am not a member of the organizing body but will be playing alongside you and plunging in to the thrills and hazards of a Castle siege/defense.
I can still offer limited help with registrations and information - so if you'd like to come, please don't hesitate to contact me (if I can't help you, I'll surely know someone know who can).
Any questions can also be posted here, I will point out this topic to the actual organizers and ask them to check in from time to time.
There are no limitations to you, regarding the side you wish to be on. But seeing your eyes light up, with the chance to defend the castle at Nordic Equinox, I took the liberty to speak about it on your behalf with the "Jüriöö2008" organizers.
They are happy to register you on the side of Germans (the defenders) at Jüriöö, if you so choose.
