Sad news to pass along. Long time ABA member, past President, and former ABA Newsletter Editor, Dave Allen passed away unexpectedly Thursday night.

The family is in the process of making arrangements and that information will be passed along when it becomes available.

In the meantime, please say a prayer or take a moment of reflection for our good friend Dave. He helped enrich all our lives, was part of the foundation that made ABA a great organization and will be dearly missed. May he rest in peace.

My wife and I went to your event this weekend. Ended up leaving when we saw KKK crap on display. I don't know if the rest of the group is OK with this stuff, I would hope you are not. If the rest of your organization is not OK with this, please throw him and his racist crap out of your event. ... See MoreSee Less

Just a courtesy FYI to those of you who drive trucks. Don't park downtown Troy as you could very likely get a parking ticket as we did today. We were NOT in an extended cab truck and was in the line. Funny thing. We got a ticket but the person beside us in a minivan didn't. $20.00 for having a truck and supposedly "truck in the road".... not.

This year we will have a special pc in the Auction from the family of Hans Piot who passes away this year.
This is one of the chess sets made for the 1996 ABANA conference (Alfred, NY) auction. There were two tables made by the NYSDB. We Belive this one was made by Charlie Orlando and Bill Banker
The top is marble and the chess pieces were donated by other affiliate groups. The tables were written up in "Chess" magazine. The pics do not show all the pc.
The proceeds from this item will be donated to the American Cancer society

Beautiful work

I was at that conference when this was sold. Every piece is a work of art!

Did the chess set bring a good price?

U gonna "ship" it?

Wow, we has a 500 pound one once. It was my grandpa's. Bring in the forklift

SORRY EVERYONE!!! you can start crying now. The Studebaker family has donated this beauty to SOFA as long as we promise to use it. Come to Quad State and we will let you cradle it and wash it with tears.

Chris Van Wagner looks like I tagged you too late.
