UK Tournament Diary

Congress details have been on our website calendar page for some time.

We have reserved some rooms at the venue hotel, and just one single room is left from our allocation, as of a few minutes ago! This will be released in the next few days.

If you wish to book at the venue, you should do so right away. The Hotel telephone number is: 01743 499955 Email: reservations@prince-rupert-hotel.co.uk

There are only a few hotels in the town centre (plenty further out) and wherever you choose to stay, it will probably pay to plan ahead.

As to the tournament itself, the early bird discount runs up to 31st January.

Any questions to britishopen@britgo.org

8 November 2014

This is a new style Go tournament, being held on 8th November, which aims to provide you with the chance to play a variety of opponents on even games over the course of one day. The format is designed to be attractive to double digit kyu players and to junior players in particular.

The tournament will be split into a number of sections (using British Go Association grades).

In case some of you didn’t notice: due to a booking conflict at the International Students House we’ve had to change the days of the week for the Challengers League from Friday - Monday as in previous years to Saturday 24th May - Tuesday 27th May in 2014. We hope this won’t be too much of an inconvenience to you and would like feedback after the event as to whether we should keep these days of the week or revert to Friday to Monday (subject to room availability obviously).

The British Championship entry fee will remain as it has for the last few years at £25, with something new this year: the entry fee those entitled to BGA concessionary membership will be £10.

Also new this year we are considering offering assistance with travel expenses to those in financial difficulty.

We've had a good few games in Divisons 2 and 3 although Divison 1 has been a bit thin on the ground.

Unless anyone objects beforehand I shall declare drawn unplayed games in matches which have started.
