Again a success of our quiz solvers!

Our Nordic members achieved a remarkable success at the 10th edition of the ChessCafe Holiday Quiz: this time the top trio is formed of Claes Løfgren (in first place), closely followed by Knud Lysdal (2nd) and Per Skjoldager (3rd), completed by Calle Erlandsson (4th) and Miquel Artigas (8th) – so five KWA members can be found among the top ten, a fine recommendation for our association.

We are pleased to welcome into our midst a new member from Great Britain, for Jimmy Adams (Hoddesdon) recently decided to strengthen the Ken Whyld Association. Not only on the British Isles Jimmy Adams is well-known as the editor of the Chess (Monthly) magazine, he also distinguished himself many times as an author, editor and typesetter of high-quality chess books; moreover - by translation from the Russian - he made several significant chess works available to Western readers. Obviously his main interests in this connection are game collections and tournament books, now and then he made an excursion into opening theory as well. As a collector of chess literature Jimmy is highly selective – therefore his collection is still manageable, and in any case he is very interested in chess history ...

Certainly we would be happy to meet Jimmy personally in London – maybe in the course of our regional UK meeting planned for the coming year!?

By this contribution we would like to recall that four years ago (2002-11-30) a first meeting of the "Amsterdam Group" took place, the signal for a venture which should develop something later to the Ken Whyld Association. So we welcome the opportunity of presenting here three of our Dutch members who could recently draw special attention to themselves – naturally for different reasons.
