On a Visit to a Salta Evening at Brunswick

59th Klittich-Pfankuch Auction
with an Attractive Entertainment Program



Our honorary member of the board didn't fail as well
to hand a present.

The planned Salta tournament was not held due to a humble participation, only two free games were played here.

A public viewing of the guest book of the Chess Club Braunschweig Gliesmarode (with numerous valuable autographs) was not possible but Michael Negele will soon provide a digital edition of this remarkable rarity.
PS (01/08/2011): Meanwhile this has been done, please see our page BSC Guestbook!

Chess Club Braunschweig Gliesmarode von 1869

Moreover we should mention that the SC Braunschweig Gliesmarode von 1869 possesses an outstanding chess library which even holds very rare items from the early 16th century.

Just from the printing press came the new commemorative publication 150 Jahre Schachbund Nordrhein-Westfalen, a 30-page booklet printed in color and distributed by co-author Hans-Jürgen Fresen:

In the evening we met in the restaurant Al Duomo for a late-night dinner, Per Skjoldager and Jørn Erik Nielsen had brought an advance copy of their new Nimzowitsch book (Aron Nimzowitsch On the Road to Chess Mastery, 1886-1924) which is announced to appear in spring 2012, see the new McFarland leaflet.
