A first look at the meeting in San Francisco, October 2009
Unfortunately only 7 KWA members had joined in this year's general meeting at San Francisco: Andy Ansel, John Donaldson, Kerry Lawless, Michael Negele, Myron Samsin, Jurgen Stigter and Yakov Zusmanovich. Instead there were a number of guests, among them IM Anthony Saidy who is a versed collector as well, the veteran IM Walter Shipman and the couple Ian and Cathy Rogers who even attended the whole meeting. A certain Andrew Smith has recorded the complete event.
Due to the poor participation no important decisions could be made at the meeting. The venue (and the technical equipment) were ideally suited.
