The 13th senior World Games was held in Prague, Czech
Republic, August 3 - 6, 2000.
The accommodation was in "Hotel Vltava"
which is also where the closing party was held.
A short bus trip took the players to the halls at
"Sport center SK Slavia Praha" where the games was played.
Because of the limited number of players the tournament
was somewhat different than usual.
A lot of new players attended, all of which had already
played the game for a while at home.
The drawing of teams held on the first day (August 3rd) was also a success since the teams ended up very even in strength. Women was drawn first, then the non-Czech men and finally the Czech men because of the many Czech players.
The next morning started with a short breakfast followed by the bus trip to the venue where the first two games in the qualifying round was played. After the games and the bus-trip back to the hotel, dinner was served followed by some free time for sightseeing in the beautiful city of Prague.
Saturday, August 5th went along in the same manner
with the final qualifying game followed by the first game of the playoffs.
Directly after the games a bus was ready to take all players to the Karlstein
Castle outside Prague where a short guided tour was waiting followed by
dinner in a restaurant nearby.
Sunday, August 6th hosted the final two games of the
Monday, August 7th was the time of departure and goodbyes.
