Frank Hoppe (Berlin), webmaster of the DSB (German Chess Federation) and new member of the KWA&F, can celebrate his 52nd birthday today. Congratulations!





Anyway, Frank Hoppe’s long-time commitment for the DSB and also for the Berliner Schachverband (Berlin Chess Association) deserves respect and acknowledgment. This morning he has released a great pictorial report on his visit to the German chess village Löberitz on the occasion of the "Löberitzer Schachtage" in last June, together with DSB president Herbert Bastian and Michael Negele. Have a look at Zu Besuch im Schachmuseum Löberitz with an extra large series of photos. Below we give only a few additional snapshots (provided by Michael Negele).

Maybe also a KWA meeting in Löberitz (and Leipzig) could come true in 2017, let’s wait and see.

Two chess historians shake hands:

Konrad Reiß is our second "birthday man" today, 
congratulations as well!
