You can keep up to date with the latest results this weekend, as we hope to post them after each round (no guarantees!).
At the suggestion of one of our members we are pleased to announce that the reports submitted for the AGM are now available in the Members Area of our website.
This includes the unaudited accounts for 2013.
Apologies for the delay in issuing the following - it was intended for the Newsletter but not included by mistake (not the Editor’s).

Despite problems in some parts of England caused by flooding, there should be no weather problems affecting Bognor Regis this weekend. Friday is predicted to be 6C but quite wet, with 4C and dry at night. Saturday is showery but Sunday is predicted a sunny 7C! Monday is predicted showery, at 8C.
We managed to repeat our result from 2011, although we're now both in League C, not League B...
Andrew failed for us on Board 1. His opponent, whom he had beaten in the first season of the league in 2011, played some rather strange and bad moves in the opening and Andrew spent rather too long trying to punish them. Andrew didn't get much advantage (if any) and got annoyed.
Report by Ben Murphy (edited by Tony Collman)
I attended the Rocket Complex in Holloway Road, London for the first ever combined London Anime and Gaming Convention on Sunday 9th February and quickly set up the table.
The 2014 Irish Go Congress occurred over the weekend on 14th -16th February, with 44 players attending in a surprisingly sunny Dublin. Celebrating 25 years of Go in Ireland, the main tournament, the 3rd Confucius Cup, was well represented with a strong field of players.
Fan Hui (2p France) won with a perfect 5/5 score.
They will be visiting Oxford and Bognor Regis. Chizu Kobayashi will then go on to visit London and Edinburgh.
