When they should have still be hard at work updating the results, counting the money or safely storing the BGA's equipment, the BGA's EYGC team were spotted in an Arundel pub winning a pub quiz. The BGA team scored 31 points out of 60 to win a meal voucher and also £33 in the raffle. A BGA spokesman said "At least they are good at something."

Pictured are the three main organisers with Bob the Builder: Sue Paterson, Toby Manning and Tony Atkins.

Other members of the BGA and the EGF assisted in various roles.

British Lightning
Bognor Regis
28 February 2014

48 players sat down in eight groups to play the British Lightning. This was the first event at the combined BGC and EYGC weekend at Bognor Regis.

The winners of the groups went on to the knock-out stage: Paul Barnard, Cornel Burzo, Francisco Divers, Anton Kriese, Andrei Mramorov, Des Cann, Jonas Welticke and Richard Hunter. Cornel then went on to beat Francisco to reach the final against Jonas, who had beaten Andrei. The final was decided on the clock (and on the board) in favour of Cornel, the Romanian 6d.

Two Professionals, MINEMATSU Masaki (6p), Kansai branch of NHK and KOBAYASHI Chizu (5p), NHK, visited Oxford on Thursday 27th February.

We started the evening with a suggestion of Kobayashi Chizu. There were 13 players from 20 kyu to 5 dan, with a few more dan players than kyu players. We split into 2 (almost) equal size groups -- a Black group, and a White group. The first Black and White players each played 2 moves, followed by the second players, who did the same. Sometimes, the players were asked by Kobayashi why they made their choice, and alternative moves were often discussed.
