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.
