FAI AGM 2004 in the Bastenhaus, near Kirchheimbolanden.
(a short report by Dr. Joachim Schaaf)

Summary for our English speaking members:
Besides the continuous rain, we all enjoyed our AGM in the Hotel 'Bastenhaus', in particular the delicious food and wines. We all were happy to welcome many members from abroad again. There were not only philatelic activities like our auction held by Manfred Schollmayer but also a trip to the beautiful town of Kirchheimbolanden with the historic town wall and wedding room.

All was well organized by Ute Kaufmann and Heinz Günther Grunz to whom we express our thanks. In 2005 FAI will have their AGM meeting in Steinheim-Sandebeck (located between Paderborn and Höxter), from April 29 - May 1, 2005.
