On a Visit to a Salta Evening at Brunswick

59th Klittich-Pfankuch Auction
with an Attractive Entertainment Program


This year again the Brunswick auction house Klittich-Pfankuch has significantly enhanced the summery June auction by a special event, after the viewing on Friday afternoon (24th of June) customers and guests were invited to a pleasurable Salta evening which took place in the well-known auction hall on Theaterwall.

Roger Klittich announces the Salta lecture.

Once more (after the Laska lecture in the previous year) Prof. Wolfgang Angerstein was willing to deliver a talk in order to give us an understanding of this nowadays widely unknown board game – in the specified time frame of one hour he gave a peppy amusing lecture on this game which he has dealt with thoroughly for about 10 years. His very successful presentation was met with hearty applause.

Subsequent to the lecture a short tribute to our host Roger Klittich was due - he had celebrated his 75th birthday at the beginning of the month, more precisely on June 3rd. On this occasion, but especially in recognition of his long-time services to the Ken Whyld Association our board members Guy Van Habberney, Michael Negele and Jurgen Stigter offered their congratulations and spoke short words of appreciation.

Naturally adequate gifts for the such honoured were obligatory – at this both the physical well-being (by a box with selected Spanish wine) and the mental edification (by a superb chess book) was provided for.
