Invitation (Ausschreibung) in German


Dear bughouse enthusiasts,

another very enjoyable gathering is over. Sadly some of the regulars could not make it, but we also saw a great comeback by the bughouse legend venomous Smiley and Maras and some amazing new people showed up. While the first arrival was already happening monday and the last departure more than a week later, the main milestones were the same as in the last year - casual massive bug on thursday and friday (interrupted only to go for lunch/dinner and for watching football euro cup games), the official bughouse open tournament on saturday for teams and the smaller individual player event with bronstein time controls on sunday.

For those who seek information, pictures and videos:

All other links are collected in (not only) czech main thread forum:
which always worked, even if partial discussion under actualities didnt cos to some server timeouts :)

========================  /QUOTE  ==================================

skaCZ also uploaded a lot of good video material to youtube. It should be refered to on alamars forum. There is video material from three different cameras of the final series between Firefly + Cranith vs. NilsSKBB and Ishamael. I think the result will be worth some waiting.

I have about 300+ pictures of the gathering, the best of which i will publish here. If other participants would like to share their pictures or videos, please contact me.
