Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

i can bring a ball.

this will be my last play, then i gotta go home.

Don't forget your bathingsuits in case the football ends up in the canal again!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

So... what are your thoughts about the weather??

If the court is not play worthy... i proposed to you another place to play.. (if you want). The place is artificial grass.. is also a school playground..

http://maps.google.ch/maps/myplaces?...&dirflg=w&z=16

if you want.. get here is actually easy... either you can take the train s6 .. is every hour and 2 min .. or half an hour and 2 min (and takes 15 min)... from zurich hb... if you live close to oerlikon you can also take the bus... i think is *61

im just saying.. if you want to propose another place... or cancel the game at all...is ok

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hi guys - I've about a 90 min roundtrip too so bit worried I either find out were on / off too late, or get there and we play for 20 mins and it rains.

I'm happy to try Dumans idea if other people are. Don't mind playing in rain if its safe. Whihc I guess it would be on artifical grass.

So I'd be in favour of a venue move if it means a definite game

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hi - forecasts are all saying high odds of rain between now and 2pm. I don't live in town so have to leave at 10.50 to get there. Just worried I do that, and it rains!

Happy to go ahead if others are. But if it rains, and we can make a call by say 11.30, are people ok with moving to Dumans suggestion or would they prefer to call it off?

So for me:
1 - usual place
2 - other venue
3 - no game.

Cheers
Graham

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Ground is still wet here in Kreis 4, and rain is forecast for bang on midday, so if the pitch isn't too wet already, odds on it will be.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

In the google map link i post... you can see the where it is.. actually the court is exactly where the mark is

to get here you can take the s6 train that goes to baden (order of stops..zurich hb - hardbrucke - oerlikon - seebach - affoltern) .. it is still inside the 10 zone in zurich so you dont need an extension for your ticket.

the adress will be .. muhlackerstrasse 87 affoltern zurich 8046

if you are in oerlikon, or close to there... you can take the bus 61.. the one that says muhlacker on it .. and it drops you off in front of the court ..

if someone knows from another place to.. it will be ok

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

or we can meet at the playground, (if no rain) and if the court will be slippy, we all will go to the other place...
