Chess Summer
in Brunswick and Potsdam



In the supporting programme of this year's summer auction of the house Klittich-Pfankuch - it was the 61st public sale - two KWA members, Harrie Grondijs and Mario Ziegler had the opportunity to present their current book projects subsequent to the general previewing on Friday, 22 June. As always, the Klittich family had cared for the physical well-being of the guests in an exemplary manner:

In the garden of the auction house Klittich-Pfankuch,
in front Bob van de Velde with Per Skjoldager.

Dr. Mario Ziegler gives a lecture on his book project,
the chess tournament London 1851.

We offer in our member section the presentation sheets of Harrie Grondijs as well as the project outline of Mario Ziegler, as PDF each:
Die Fehler vom Kalabrier and Projektskizze London 1851 (both in German)

Nothing but well-known members in the auditorium

After the auction on Saturday our treasurer Michael Negele found himself "alone among Dutchmen", below some pictures from the evening in the "Al Duomo".

Bert Corneth (on the right) again turned up with his son.

Bob van de Velde and Harrie Grondijs who had come with his wife to the
Klittich auction for the first time, both enjoyed Brunswick very much.

Dutch ladies by themselves:
Rieneke van Zutphen and Winifred van de Velde

Presumably a summary of the chess auction will appear in our next CSQ issue in September.
