John Diamond Retires

John Diamond has unfortunately found the pressure on his time too great, and has been forced to give up editing this Journal. The thanks of all members are due to him, not only for the consistently excellent standard of the Journal, but also for its very existence as possibly the strongest bond between Go players in different parts of Britain.

In his place the Committee have appointed Andrew Daly, of Reading Go Club.


I would like to add to those of the Committee my personal thanks to John Diamond for his work on the Journal, particularly on this issue, which is partly his work.

I am always glad to hear from prospective contributors, whether of news or of articles.

Secretarys Notes from the Secretary of the B.G.A.

The Association is temporarily out of stock of Go sets, due to a higher demand than anticipated. More have been ordered from Japan, but these may not arrive for a few months, and may be about 10/- [50p] more expensive than the last batch.

Club Secretaries and unattached members are reminded that subscriptions are due on January 1st and that prompt action would be appreciated.

All members are asked once more to be cautious in self-promotion, and reminded that any request for promotion in or to Dan grades should be sent to the Secretary, with evidence to support the claim, for consideration by the Committee.
