I recently had the pleasure of meeting Markus Haag (president, right) and Andreas Kuglstatter (tournament organiser, left) from the Brombach chess club in Lörrach in Germany. Lörrach is Chester’s twin town and is situated in the bottom left hand corner of Germany very close to Basel. Their club is of a similar size to Chester’s and also has a significant junior component.
They were visiting Chester assisting a youth exchange programme and are pictured here outside their university accommodation. We discussed exchanging details of the tournaments we each run and maybe playing a match in future.
If you might in principle be interested in travelling to Germany to play a weekend tournament and/ or a match then please let me (Phil) know.
