It is with regret that we have to report the very tragic death of Xinyi Lu at the age of 26.

He was not just a Go player, but also an organiser and promoter of the game, being a BGA Council member from 2007 to 2010.

Xinyi died in an accident, while on holiday in China, at the beginning of October. His parents have created a website in his memory, some of you may wish to add your condolences there: https://sites.google.com/site/tributetoxinyi/

We offer our condolences to his parents and family.

Shrewsbury
Gateway Centre
2 October 2011

The winner of this year's Shrewsbury tournament was Toby Manning, after a long struggle with Baron Allday, who creatively made eyes for two wandering dragons only to find his safe corner die as a result. Toby collected his prize at a run and departed to catch a plane to Kosovo, now less of a war zone than the Go board. Kathleen Timmins also won three games. Although numbers were down on last year, those present enjoyed the tournament and commented that the shift to Sunday had made travel and parking trouble free.
