I recently learned that there will be no Dutch team competing in the EC, because they waited too long with reserving their flights and now those flights have become too expensive for them :roll: thus confirming the cliché that Dutch are cheap :oops: :D .

Anyhow, since it looks that I'll be the only Dutchman there, I had hoped to form a 'rest of Europe' team with other people that are the sole representatives of their country, for instance Dorjana Sirola of Croatia.

Are there any for instance Estonian quizzers of Russian descent who would like to team up with us?

I know for sure Dorjana is keen to play in a 'Rest of Europe' side. Let's hope we can find 2 people with parents or grandparents of other nation birthright willing to join you! Also, and putting my IQA organiser's hat on for a moment, I don't see that playing for a 'Rest of Europe' side on such terms would prevent anyone from playing for their real 'home' nation in the future.


By the way 'Prodigy', I notice also that easyJet flights from London Stanstead to Tallinn (return) are less than £90 at the moment. Is getting to Stanstead an option for your Dutch compatriots?

Stanstead ... Stansted. You say tomayto ... I say tomahto ... You say Potayto .. I say potahto :D
What's the difference???

Sorry Owl, just a unique chance to ask the correct spelling / pronounciation to a native speaker ? No offence!

No offence taken.

I'm a poor speller, especially of 'English' place names. Trouble is, England was a medieval melting-pot and we have lots of strange spellings. Nottingham derives from the Viking name Snottingham - meaning Snot's farm - yeuch! I live close to Pontefract (French 'broken bridge'). Then there's Knutsford - from Canute's ford. Not far from me is the town of Keighly - pronounced Keith-lee! Then "dahn sarf" (I live "eup north lad!") there's Chalmondeley - pronounced 'Chumlee'. Great eh!

Then again, you want to try and spell Welsh place-names!!! :wink:

Due to great interest we decided to chance the system of the individual game a bit. We allow a maximum of 160 players (currently 150) in groups of five. After the first round, the fifth player with the worst result will be dropped to a large group at the bottom of the table, the first 128 will continue playing according to the system.

I would like to thank the Estonians for the very nice experience of quizzing in Estonia.

The questions were sometimes very tough (if not almost impossible for us, Belgian quizzers), but I have heard a lot of very nice questions. It was also a confrontation with the fact that, although we may know a lot about some things, we know almost nothing about other things, such like classical music of Eastern Europe, national anthems...

The Estonian national team was very strong - they could have beaten us too. And Tallinn is a nice and beautiful city - it even looks better in the book I've taken home about Old Tallinn. 8)

It was simply the best quiz event I have ever been to, and added to this Tallinn was magical, the food great, and the company unsurpassed.

Thank you Arko, and thank you Estonians!

P.S. Thanks also to Tauno for looking after us Brits at FC Levadia on the Sunday.
