26th February 2005
This was the first English language Scrabble tournament held in Sweden. At the invitation of the Swedish Scrabble Association, eight British players ventured to Stockholm to play in this one day event and make new Scandinavian Scrabble friends.
The sun shone on the bus but the temperature was never above zero!
Stockholm by day and night
This restaurant didn't sound too appealing...
... while the shopping centre claimed to offer so much more!
Scrabble players forced into a pub against their will. Honest.
An excellent dinner at Baltazar restaurant with our hosts Greger Nässén and Mårten Björkman
