This Saturday it’s the 2012 Swedish Open in Norrtälje. The Årsta lads will be going up with high expectations of some good football, after some great patience and team-play very nearly snatched the win from a tough and determined Bromma unit last week.
Some important info about the day:
- Pool Games will be 20 minutes long, played over two 10 minute halves with a 5 minute halftime break. Grand Final will be 2 x 15mins. There will be a 5 minute break between games. See the Swedish Open 2012 schedule here. Timekeepers have been told to be strict with the clock in order to keep the day on time.
- A handicap system will be in use during the Swedish open to create a more level playing field. Each national player (Swedish for Swedish Teams, Norwegian for Oslo) will receive 6 points with each international player (non-national, non-Australian) receiving 3 points. Australians will not receive any handicap. Teams will start every match with these handicap points.
- Food and drink should be available between and after games, as well as showers to freshen up after

We will meet at KTH bus terminal at 8:30 on Saturday to travel up as a team.
