Monomix is going to take a look.

If it's a bit wet but not raining it's still pretty bad. It's kind of like playing on ice in terms of how much grip you can when you turn, and sprinting is asking for trouble.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hi guys - we're going to have to pull out. Are about an hour from footie commute wise so would have to start heading off now. Sounds like good chance it won't be on.

If its on, enjoy. If not, see you guys next week. Fingers crossed for more sun !

Monomix you can have my spot if the game is actually happening.

***EDIT*** I am ready to go, so if the game is going on and you need more peeps I can come... I might just be around 15minutes late.

So: an attempt to slide-tackle myself in flat-soled shoes was unsuccessful, can feel that the ground isn't completely dry but the grip is 80% of dry levels I reckon. Still a tough call.

Yeah, it's really dangerous and people forget, sprint for the ball and end up running into trees etc...
Problem is getting people to Affoltern - especially those coming from Meilen or Lucerne, etc.

Okay, let's be safe and boring -

Game Off

Thanks for checking!
