Ken Whyld showcase

The Ken Whyld showcase in the Max Euwe-Centrum

From 6 p.m. the Max Euwe-Centrum filled up literally to the very last seat, among the visitors was also GM Genna Sosonko who showed much interest in the activities of our association. Jurgen Stigter inaugurated the Ken Whyld exhibition and gave some explanations on the contents of the showcase, all those who will not get a chance to visit the MEC till March 2006 will gain an insight by our small slide show. Afterwards Alessandro Sanvito was reminiscent of Ken Whyld, his friend for many years, finding very personal words.
