Spike beat you to that question a few months ago.

My parents owned a media buying service (a kind of ad agency) and had
the Icelandic tourism board for a client.  I went there for a few
weeks with them (I was 7 that summer) and the government gave them
little perks as we travelled around, like tickets to one of the chess

I don't remember anything about the match (it was past my bedtime).  I
couldn't even tell you which match we attended, but in some box in a
NY storage room, I still have the tickets.  If I ever find them
cleaning out my parent's stuff, I'll take a picture and post them.
However, like many other kids back then, the match inspired me to
learn chess, although I gave up within months.  My talents do not lie
there.  ;-)
