Unfortunately only 7 KWA members
had joined in this year's general meeting at San Francisco: Andy Ansel,
John Donaldson, Kerry Lawless, Michael Negele, Myron Samsin, Jurgen Stigter
and Yakov Zusmanovich. Instead there were a number of guests, among them
IM Anthony Saidy who is a versed collector as well, the veteran IM Walter
Shipman and the couple Ian and Cathy Rogers who even attended the whole
meeting. A certain Andrew Smith has recorded the complete event.
Due to the poor participation no important decisions could be made at
the meeting. The venue (and the technical equipment) were ideally suited.
