[Busy day with full afternoon tea for our Bible Study gang - fbb makes, tests and finishes off any surplus sandwiches. Yesterday's selection: egg and cress, cream cheese and cucumber, roast turkey, followed by Mrs fbb's Victoria Sandwich cake with added clotted cream ...]
The winners were a team from Stockholm.
The "first to go" was the home team. Broadly, the challenge was to drive a Stuttgart tram via a series of obstacles and challenges.
Here is driver Viola Dieterichs about to push the green button to start the timer.
Next the assistant driver, Kevin Holubar, had to place a marker such that Viola would just miss it on a curve.
Then it was quick dash to a second tram for LRT six-pin bowling.
Drive your tram up to a large but mercifully soft ball and prod it towards a set of mega-skittles. Points awarded on the basis of how many pins you demolished. Nul punkte if you bashed the six-pins with the tram.
The two-day-championships includes: training runs and a sightseeing tour, drivers` party, competitions, and award ceremony.
We know that Stockholm won, but where did Manchester come?
But, as the enthusiastic commentator kept reminding us, "It was a fantastic day for everyone!"
Of course it was!
