*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Schanzengrabenpromenade School Yard

Fun, friendly football fun close to Paradeplatz.

Notes:

PLAYER LIMIT 15

* Please sign as 'yes' or 'no'. 'Maybe' just makes things confusing
* Check the thread for a game on / game off notice
* Play nice - it's FUN, not the World Cup final.
* The time is 12:00 - 14:00
* New players and women are very welcome (unless we've reached the player limit)
* All skill levels are represented, ranging from comically inept to Spanish
* It's free
* A lovely, refreshing fountain is nearby. Bring a plastic bottle.
* If the pitch is slippy or if it's raining the event is cancelled (because it's really dangerous)

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

I'd like to remind anyone signing up to play that we have a player limit of 15. AFTER 15 people have signed up then go ahead and sign up as 'Maybe', so that we have an orderly waiting list.

If you have signed up as 'Yes':
Please show up on Sunday or update your status well in advance.

If you are signed up on the 'Maybe' waiting list:
Keep checking through till Sunday morning to see if anybody has dropped out.

This Sunday we will be bringing a list of names of those who signed up to play, so we can determine who actually turned up.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

pinx, go ahead and move yourself to the 'yes' list and come to the game, you're first in line on the waiting list.

If you can't make it then please let us and ayaskant sahu know.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

yes! we had exactly 15 people. First time I've ever seen the same amount sign up = show up. Seems the new system works

PS - there seems to be a direct relationship between skill level AND time spent in the Limmat

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

I am glad for you all, it is so much better when the 15 people who signed up actually do show up. I hope you had a good game and did not have to go into the river again.

I don't really see anything "NEW" in the system except it was said that a list of names would be brought to the game to check and see who showed up.
If a list of names is what is needed to get people to change their YES to a NO when they know they are not going to show up, then it should be done every game.
