A First Impression of the Meeting in Antwerp, April 2010
Below you will find our traditional group photo from this year's general meeting. Jan van Reek was only shortly present, he had to leave quite soon because of health reasons. Benoit Ide was only able to join the very nice introductional reception at his friend, Herwig Simons (antiquarian shop www.herwigsimons.be). Last but not least Myron Samsin had to cancel his visit due to the closure of the European airports that weekend. Not in the picture is Eric Ruch as well as GM Luc Winants whom we are pleased to welcome as a new KWA member.
