  -> Well, in my language 'wedstrijdtafel' is a game table. This Hockey Pool was a little overshoot, but I cannot edit it anymore unfortunately

neutral  Barend van Zadelhoff: wedstrijdtafel: http://tinyurl.com/ou6c6d9 - http://tinyurl.com/psmo4gd Where's the logic? / Maar het gaat om mensen die op de thuisbasis de tegenpartij opvangen...
4 hrs
  -> tafel=schedule, i.e. list of events...

neutral  writeaway: it's where the home club officials sit to process members of the visiting team. there just isn't an automatic translation from Nl into English. That's what's causing the probs for native Nl speakers.

agree  Maart3n: @Louis, ik denk dat jij het dichtst bij bent. Volgens mij noemen de Engelsen dit gewoon "League tables".

  -> Dankjewel!

neutral  philgoddard: If your Dutch reference is anything to go by, it's the reception itself, not the committee.
1 hr
  -> Yes, literally, but those people organizing is what I would call a committee.

neutral  Maart3n: Een wedstrijdtafel in het Nederlands die naar het Engels metamorfeert in een commissie, dat begrijp ik niet helemaal.
3 hrs
  -> Volgens mij is "tafel" te vertalen met "committee". Een rijsttafel bestaat ook niet uit alleen rijst!
