Dip on the Rocks, the first EDV

This first EDV took place on June 7-14 in Reykjavk. Friday, there were 5 players : David Norman, Julian Ziesling and Rob Schone and 2 Icelanders (Jon Thor and Jn r Sturluson). Rob won at Imperial.
Saturday, there're 5 players : David Norman, Julian Ziesling, Rob Schone and Vincent Carry and Victor Kiernan. Rob won again at Imperial.
Sunday, there're 9 players : the 4 non-Icelanders and 5 Icelanders. A game was organised : Julian, Mike Frigge (an American living in Iceland), David, Vincent, David Frigge, Einar Jon Masson and Victor Kiernan. Paul Frigge watched the game. Everyone agreed to stop in 1906, because people had to go home. Germany had 10 centers, France and Turkey 9. Everyone else was dead or dying.
From Monday to Wednesday, they went and saw a lot various stuff around Iceland.
Everybody was very happy. Thanks to Julian, David and Vincent who helped me to make this report. Pictures will arrive soon.

About the atmosphere:
It was very casual and relaxed. People in Iceland don't get easily upset. In fact, as long as there is no life-threatening volcanic eruption with lava running towards their houses, it seems like they hardly show any emotions at all. We are very grateful for Mike's invitation for dinner one night, for Jn's family connections to a good hotel where we could sleep and play, as well as for everybody's hospitality. We hope there will be another FTF in Iceland next year so we can recommend it to all those who could not make it this year!
