I saw a Scrabble set in a shop today - but it's a Dutch set. Can anyone tell me if it's different?

My nephew will be arriving next week and staying for a couple of months. He'd like to play some rugby while he's here. Does anyone know of any rugby clubs around Amsterdam where he might get a few games?

Does anyone know where I can take basic photography classes? I would like to learn how to use my camera better, understand lighting and camera speed, how to take good pictures at night. I am not interested in week long courses for lots of money (these are the ads I've seen so far). Just a simple photo class to learn how to take better pictures.

Where do I get tickets for the matches? Can they be purchased online or can you get them on the day?

Can anybody recommend a store with a good range of outdoor equipment and clothing - boots, jackets, camping, hiking and climbing gear, etc? We could order off the internet but I quite like to look at it first - especially if one's life may depend on it!!

Any suggestions for a good beach where we can take the kids for a day next weekend - within reasonable distance of Amsterdam by car?

Can anyone suggest a good bar/cafe to watch the World Cup soccer? Preferably a good sized place with some elbow room and a minimal risk of punch-ups!

Does anyone know of a tour company over here that organises package trips to the F1 Races - thought it might be a nice present for the OH who is mad about F1. Looking for one of the races in Europe (not the UK) to go to.

Has anyone got details of classic car clubs in or around Amsterdam? I've seen a few cars with badges on but I've not been able to get details.

Still recovering from yesterday's rugby match! I need a few drams to get the ticker going again - are there any "Scottish" bars here - with a good range of single malts (and preferably with NO Welshmen, daffodils or leeks in sight!)

Am looking for somewhere in the country that does Horse Riding Holidays - not looking for anything to taxing as some of the group (me included) who have never ridden before. If anyone has done this can you let me know where and what it was like.

Someone I saw today said that you can walk on the sea here in Holland when it freezes over - are they pulling my leg?

One of my New Years resolutions is to take up some sort of handicraft, maybe basketry, jewelery making or even restoring old furniture. Are there any evening classes, hopefully in English?

I enjoy having a go at the Guardian prize crossword that they publish on Xmas Eve. Is there an international newsagent that I might be able to pick up a copy of the UK issue on Thursday?
