New zones for Preston

Postby ogirl » 10 Jan 2021, 10:51

Love what we have, thank you
Please can we have some more zones to W and S of Sheratonfield
Also some zones make a very linear run with no obvious loop back
I have reported 10 bad zones that are not possible elsewhere

Now you have 7 new zones to the West.

To the South I need suggestions, because many places seem to have fences around them. You can suggest in this thread or in the app. If you found a interesting or beautiful place it´s a big chance that it could be a zone there.

Some suggestions for the west of our city ( i tried to attach pictures but failed)
I have used Northings/westings and hope this helps.
There are now three of us doing Turf in this part of town
1. Dodney 53 45 57N 2 46 25 W (grass area, open access)
2. CanalPNE 53 46 11N 2 46 5 W (Canal tow path near road )
3. Lock 53 46 18N 2 45 35 W (lock on canal tow path)
4. Whistle 53 43 39 N 2 45 20W (Bridge over canal)
5. HaslamW 53 42 20N 2 44 20 W (W park entrance)
6. HaslamN 53 46 55N 2 44 12 W (North end of park near canal bend)
7. St.Ants 53 45 56N 2 43 37 W (path near stream)
8. Cottam Castle 53 46 55 N 2 45 49W (round grass area)
9 OldCross 53 45 50N 2 46 16 W (ancient cross near fountain)
10 MillersField 53 47 11 N 2 45 32 W

You are welcome to make more suggestions. A zone should be at least 20x20 meters, preferably 25x25 meters. It should preferably not be on someone's private plot with any part of the zone (but small exceptions can be made). It should not be located on a road, parking lot or other place where there is a high risk of enticing players to stop their car to take a zone. It is OK with a single zone that can be taken without getting out of the car, but not in any place where you stop the traffic if you stop. A good place can be in an interesting or beautiful place.

The zone should preferably be on a pedestrian / bicycle path, square or similar places where the surface is not damaged if many people start playing Turf. In the beginning, all zones in Sweden were ON only the lawn, but when we started to see marks after everyone who cycled to take the zone, we changed and now try to lay them so the surface is not damaged.

The more players who play, the more zones there will be. Right now there are quite a few zones in and around Preston but there are also completely empty areas and there we are happy to get many suggestions.

The advantage of suggestions in the app is that they remain in our system, but you only have 3 suggestions per game round, so now that we make many zones in the UK, it is possible to put many suggestions here in the forum (and preferably also their 3 in the app).

Thank you for all the new zones- can't wait to get out there now despite the rain. Hopefully it will also encourage others.
I will look for areas with gaps of no zones and try to suggest some for those places too
