The Newsletter format is changing. In future all Newsletters will be distributed electronically, from our website rather than manually from the list of addresses that our Membership Secretary has. To keep you better informed, we intend to produce Newsletters monthly, probably in two formats - one without and one with recent News items, the latter for those of you who aren’t constantly looking at our website.

If you're a member of the British Go Association you should have received an email about this as well as the first issue. If you didn't then we either don't have your email address or we have it recorded incorrectly. In either case please notify our Membership Secretary.

*Actually, it's possible that our Newsletters are being treated as SPAM, so please check your Spam boxes first before contacting us.

Due to some scammers using our britgo.org domain name a few weeks ago we've been having some problems with people trying to contact us and various people through our website. This also applies to registrations to the London Open this year.

Unfortunately, the problem has led to some ISPs dropping emails from us without notification, so we're not aware of exactly which emails are not being received.

Sadly, despite our efforts, we can't be sure that all ISPs have unbanned us, so if you don't receive a response within a week please feel free to try to contact the person via an alternative route (including using a phone!) or escalate your request to someone else directly.

We'd like to apologise for this problem and hope it doesn't affect you too much.

We're pleased to announce that we've revised many of our existing publications and will shortly be reprinting these in volume, so if you need to get copies of them please just ask. You can see them all at http://www.britgo.org/covers

  • Go Comic
    Now uses pass stones.
  • Flyer
    Mostly minor corrections.
  • Play Go booklet
    A significant update, as it now avoids the use of the term "group", which WE normally use in an ambiguous fashion when talking about the game. Since this booklet may be used by beginners without a teacher, the description of capturing and eyes need to be very clear. How the end of the game is described has also been simplified and, hopefully, made easier to understand.

An additional Roller Banner is also being produced, so if you need one for an exhibition or other occasion you'll be publicising Go at please ask.

Already our discounted accommodation has sold out and Butlins own discounted rate ends today, 4th February. We are sorry that accommodation is selling fast but the warm UK weather is encouraging people to take winter holidays in the UK!

Latest advice on accommodation is at http://www.britgo.org/eygc2014/accommodation with options for parties of 4 or 6.

If you are a single or a couple then there are various hotels in Bognor and also guest houses, but some of these are running low on availability (some links from out accommodation page).
