Your Move/Readers Write: 1st US Go Congress, Not

AGA news - Fri, 20/02/2015 - 01:26

1st US Go Congress, Not: “The group photo said to be of the 1st Go Congress in 1985 is not (Go Filmmakers Looking for US Go Congress Photos, Videos 2/16),” writes Michael Bull. “That photo predates the Congress and was taken in San Francisco, CA at one of the last of the East Coast/West Coast championships. The long time manager of the SF Go Club Shinji Dote is seated in the front and he never attended a US Go Congress, (he was unable to attend the 1999 Congress in SF because of poor health). The photo was taken by a SF Go Club regular known only as St. Clair.”

Matthew Macfadyen in Galway…

Irish Go Association - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 17:08

We had the immense honor, here in Galway, to receive the visit of Matthew Macfadyen, 6 dan and 25 times UK champion.

The session was a busy one : we were having one of our not-so-usual-but-usual-anyway wine and go evening session at my home plus some students who were already practicing with me in their school who decided to join the evening club plus some new beginners and finally Matthew and his wife Kirsty who joined out of the blue. Altogether, 17 players took place around gobans in the middle of glasses, tables, chairs, arms and legs, and it was cosy, and it was messy and it was absolutely great time ! Matthew played something like 14 games, with simultaneous games, commented games, and Kirsty teached some new beginners about the game. Their kindness and generosity brought a fabulous atmosphere to the evening and the Galway go club wanted to thank them deeply for their venue ! We are all going to play again and again so that for their next trip to Galway, Matthew will meet three or four 6 dans to compete with !

Philippe Renaut
in the name of all Galway Go Club players
