August 6th the second board meeting of the Ken Whyld Association was held
in the Max Euwe-Centrum at Amsterdam, participants were Jurgen Stigter,
Hans Engberts and Michael Negele as well as Bert Corneth as cash auditor,
additionally René van der Heijden, Peter de Jong and Bernd Schneider
as interested guests. Priority was given to the preparations for the general
meeting in September (details in the Member’s Area) – we would
like to express already our thanks to Eveline Dirksen for the warm reception
in the MEC. The premises ideally serve our purpose, surely all participants
will be enthusiastic about their visit.
Of course it was also nice to distribute the new Zukertort book, a first
copy was given to the library of the Max Euwe-Centrum.
