Ulrich Schädler presenting his new book project
As always time flied and after Ulrich Schädler
had presented the new edition of his Alfonso book Libro de los Juegos
we were unfortunately too short of time to present the Lasker project
before our final dinner in the museum restaurant. (See our Member's
Area / page "Minutes and Documents" about this.)
- Restaurant "L'Oubliette"
As a quite desperate Andreas Saremba failed to start a direct access to
our prototype of the "Bibliography of Chess" via the museum’s
Internet connection this contribution unfortunately turned out rather
short. In the next few weeks an appeal will again be made to those members
who have had a test access to the database up to now. The number of returns
to Andreas Saremba who is naturally waiting for further suggestions has
been very meagre till now, certainly greater efforts of our members are
necessary here to pursue one of our principal goals with more commitment.
of chance belong to the exhibits of the museum too
Apart from the nice dinner this evening offered a second highlight we
owed to the hospitable Ulrich Schädler who at the close spontaneously
offered a late-night tour of the Museum of Games – the pictures
show with what a pleasure this offer was accepted.

course at the end of our meetings the book market is obligatory –
my thanks go especially to Dusan Vukovic as well as to Tamás Erdélyi
and his companion Daniel Lovas who didn’t shy away from the long journey
with the heavy books. A special attraction was the selling of the duplicates
by the Musée Suisse du Jeu – there was many an opportunity
to buy a rare item at a very fair price. At the same time Ulrich Schädler
enjoyed the handsome amount which may serve to carry on financing the library.

On the whole this annual meeting too may belong to our successes, in spite
of the relatively low attendance (caused by some very late refusals) of
17 members (+ 5 guests).
