Events Calendar

BGA is keen to promote Go and so publicises tournaments and other relevant events in order to raise awareness of them. Such publicising does not imply oversight by BGA except where expressly stated. The only inference to be drawn is that BGA Council is confident that for a rated tournament the games are refereed to a standard that renders the outcome suitable for inclusion in the EGF database (or similar). The wider organisational issues remain the responsibility of the tournament organiser.
