Lectures (9 photos)
The lectures usually have a large audience. Not only card modelers and shipbuilding historians are present, publishers also are there to present their latest publications. The following pictures show some modelers with their models; first, however, we have a few pictures of Dr. Stölting opening the convention.

Heinrich Rockstroh puts in a personal appearance to congratulate (12 photos)
The AGK thought of something special to congratulate: Our chairman Dieter Nievergelt, in the mask of Heinrich Rockstroh, gave a humorous review of 20 years of conventions in Bremerhaven (see this PDF (170 kB) for the text and image captions). There are a lot of gifts lined up for Dr. Stölting – unfortunately all of them have some fault. Except the last one: The first copy of the reprinted book Heinrich Rockstroh: "Die Kunst, mancherlei Gegenstände aus Papier zu formen" of 1810. For more information about the book see the overview about publications of the AGK.
