The time limit was overstepped by 8 days, but the chess prolific part of the half century party at Per Skjoldager's house in Taulov, Fredericia, Denmark, was a great event that took place on August 30. The party started at 1 pm and lasted until after midnight. Five KWA members were present, the host included. Also members of the Evans Chess Club in Vejle (where Per is a member) came to Taulov, so the lightning tournament (won by Viggo Bové Quist) collected nine participants including Michael Skjoldager who showed little respect and beat his father! Two KWA members preferred to watch Per's great chess library.
