Our longtime 2nd chairman Alfons Klüpfel left this planet on 2021-06-03 and went to other dimensions. We don't know if he will travel first to Terry Pratchett's Discworld or planet "IRATA", but he will be missed. As a haven of tranquility, an open ear and advisor at our meetings, an initiator and drive of projects, and a tireless translator and author for the ABBUC magazine. We will not forget Alfons. His work is visible in all areas of ABBUC and will remain so. Here is his advice for us:

"When you think of me, don't be sad. Rather tell about me and dare to laugh. Leave me a place between you, as I had it in life."
