Thanks to everyone for a great day out in the park. (A Get-together in the park – Saturday 2nd July 2022)

There were about 23 people and 2 dogs who got-togehter in the park on Saturday. That made 9 teams competing for the the Treasure Hunt prizes (generously donated by the British Shop in Gothenburg). Two teams got the full 20 points and went to the tiebreaker.

This year we returned to an in-person get-together in Slottsskogen. This was a great opportunity to meet other members, old friends and meet new ones. We met as usual on the terrace of the ¨Villa Belparc (until the kicked us out to start the Blues festival).

The English style treasure hunt put people through their paces and challenged the brain cells. HERE are the questions.  The winners received prizes generously donated by the British Shop in Gothenburg https://www.facebook.com/TheBritishShopGothenburg including chocolate and a jar of Marmite (for 5th place).

Here is the ANSWER SHEET. 

Here is the map and the location of the clues. (The road sign that was question 13 was removed so everyone starts with one point)

ELB(A) English Language Book club

girl with books

Our book club has a MeetUp page MeetUp.com/ELBexA/. We have moved out meetings on-line so that we can continue to meet and discuss good books. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 18:30. There are usually about 8 to 10 people at any one meeting. Some people have discovered that they prefer to meet on-line and members who have moved away from Gothenburg can now still participate.

We have a summer recess and begin again in September.
