Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

After Martin Mauthner (2006) and Martin Hoffmann (2007), it now was the president of Mahjong Austria, Martin Scheichenbauer, who was the best player in Dunaújvaros. The Austrian series was only interrupted last year by Hungarian player Eszter Várnal.

Martin Scheichenbauer now has the best chances to win the Sisi Cup, for the player with the best accumulated results of the 2009 Hungarian and the Austrian Championships. The latter will be played the coming weekend at Brück am Mur.

Second in Dunaújváros was Eti Aschenbrenner from Hungary. Since she was the best Hungarian player, she was laureated as the Hungarian champion. Number three was Gabriele Sallmutter from Austria. Austria won the award for the best countru. 

There were 64 players in the Hungarian 'mahjong capital'.
