Again it was the Klittich-Pfankuch family who – after June 2001
(simul of Lothar Schmid) and November 2003 (foundation of the KWA) –
made the 46th auction on June 18th, 2005 by means of a supporting programme
especially attractive for us collectors of chess literature. (Click on
the leaflet above to enlarge the preview picture!)

On Friday, June 17th, 2005 our board member Roger Klittich devoted very
much time to the members and friends of the Ken Whyld Association so that
we could feel very happy both during the inspection of the books and at
the following supper in the garden.
And we could indulge ourselves in
talking shop, a warmer hospitality than that of the house Klittich has
rarely been granted to me. It was also nice that important topics of the
KWA’s coming work could be discussed in a relaxed way together with
Peter Holmgren, Roger Klittich, Jurgen Stigter and Michael Negele as well
as with webmaster Ralf Binnewirtz: the general meeting in Amsterdam, database
project and publications, Qelfrau bibliography. (Our member Wolfgang Remin
had brought his copy of this rarity for our inspection, many thanks for
that! A first report on this sensation from Vienna will soon appear at
Stigter and Wolfgang Remin are studying lists, the chess books in
the boxes are unexpectedly of no interest.
