When President Obama visited China in November 2009 he presented Preident Hu Jintao with a Go or Weiqi set. It consisted of a US-made wooden board and Chinese jade stones in American glass bowls, showing a fusion between the culture and skills of the two countries. You can see see the board being made in the AGA E-Journal report. No doubt Obama's knowledge of Chinese culture gained through this gift helped when he met the Dalai Lama on 18th February 2010.

Many of you will be aware that Gerry Mills has said that after 16 years and at the age of 80 he will be giving up the job of Book Seller at the end of November. I'd like to specially thank him for all his many years of effort on behalf of the BGA and also ask if there is anyone interested in taking over the role, or assisting someone else in trying to replace Gerry (which will be very big boots to fill).

Secondly, Edwin Brady is planning to retire as Secretary at the AGM, so we're looking for a new Secretary.
