August 18th, 2003 - Some new stuff and great news!
July 4th, 2003 - Chess life article #1 online finally. - sorry for the huge delay; the first article or Dr. Alexey Root and Eric Wiggins a.k.a. GhostShell is finally available in the Essay department of the academy section. Also i've finally managed to do a DivX, in this case one little piece of the games for 3rd place from the Berlin Tournament 2003 between WhoAmI & Vigo versus Cranith and Wortel, i hope you enjoy it. And, i am of course still working on those pictures. Besides the yet-to-come report with pictures, i've decided to do a gallery of all people who were there. Its not complete yet, so don't get the idea i forgot you if you're not in yet! :)
June 21st, 2003 - Czech Open 2003 coming! - Completely forgotten in the Schedule and announcements, the biggest chess festival on earth is coming up, together with the first official Czech bughouse tournament on july 14th, 2003 run by the czech chess federation! That is an important breakthrough that the bughouse "organizations" ;^P of other nations still have to achieve. Read the details here!
June 17th, 2003 - New pictures in the gatherings section - i will try to upload whatever content i can these days. Please check the gathering section frequently for an update on pictures, videos and stories! :)
June 12th, 2003 - Independance day Mini Gathering in Frankfurt/Main Germany. If you happen to be somewhere around Frankfurt, you should contact Zola who is running this neat little event - send him a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
May 26th, 2003 - News. Regarding the hostel, due to some rebookings and some people cancelling due to other important business, we have some spots available in the 4-Bed rooms with bath. However we are now seriously running out of time so if you intend to come, there is no more time to lose, and that means no more days.
May 24th, 2003 - Hostel News, other news. The bad news first - it seems the hostel wont get that beach volleyball court ready in time as promised. We will have to replace that discipline in the triathlon, lets see what i come up with...
May 18, 2003 - Hostel Reservations and other news. As the gathering time comes closer, a couple of undecided make up their mind and approach me regarding room reservation. The Hostel gave us a "grace period" until May 20th which they may extend once more for a week but that is not guaranteed. By the time this period is over they must have the signed contracts back. However you get the contract emailed to you only if you filled out the Participant's note first. Important: if you have filled out the form on this web site, but didnt receive a hostel booking number and contract yet per email, something went wrong. However i highly recommend not to contact the hostel to clarify the situation as only two people there know of us buggers; rather, send email to Suza@bughouse.info and it will be taken care of.
Apr. 28, 2003 - Hostel Situation. Our contingent at the A&O Backpackers is booked out now except for five complete four-bed-rooms without bathroom (that means, the bath and toilets are on the floor). Of course it could still be that someone else cancels another bed but i wouldnt bet on that. If you are interested in one of these beds, please reserve as soon as possible - the deadline for reservations was actually Apr. 15th so at this time there is no guarantee any longer to have these rooms under control.
Apr. 28, 2003 - First Participants List available! The provisional participants list has been uploaded to the tourney page. If you plan to play in the tourney, but you're not on the list - or if you already formed a team with someone but that team is not noted here, please mail me.
Apr. 13, 2003 - Geneva Gathering dates! Yes thats right, rumours are going around and as a usually well informed source told me, nabla will again run the original european gathering in Geneva in 2003, from August 9th to 11th. You cant miss that one, the outdoor bughouse with giant pieces is something you MUST try before you can really call yourself a bugger! I will for sure try to make it this year, it was a shame i was not able to attend in 2002 8^( To visit nabla's page which contains great bughouse resources as well as funny anecdotes and pics from previous gatherings, look here.
Travel page update - the flight market is highly volatile these days, the cheap airlines are giving the established, old ones a hard time - thank god! That way, it becomes very likely that studious buggers find an opportunity to get to berlin for the worth of a bar visit. Noone knows that better than Ralf Zöller, which is why he revised and updated his travel howto. Read the news here!
2nd International Berlin BugHouse Open invitaion - thanks to Ralf, we have the "official" invitation ready now and it will be sent out to all local clubs and national chess event calendars. Read it in English or German!
Apr. 10, 2003 - Update of the Academy corner! New games from Firefly, Fudpucker and VABORIS, very enjoyable and instructive. Thanks a lot guys!
Apr. 8, 2003 - All hail Ryanair, for inventing their new cheap flight London - Berlin! For all those who consider doing the trip, check out this new connection Ryanair came up with. Nasnad, thanks for pointing me there!
Apr. 7, 2003 - Message board is back, up and running! Thanks to a security update of the programmer, we can use the Message board again for various posts. Be my guest to post there whatever you want as long as you do it in a civilized way 8^). Nevertheless i will leave the Participant's note in place as it helps with gathering the data we need to reserve the hostel accomodation. Please take the seconds to fill it out, there is NO consequence attached to it for you.
March 12, 2003 - Check out the new academy section! Soon you'll hopefully find a lot of helpful material there to learn and improve your bughouse. All strong players please help make that a worthy source of information for interested beginners and intermediates. Thanks! :)
All potential players/participants of the are asked to please fill out this form in order to make reserving rooms possible!
