Cheshire
Frodsham
8 February 2014

Mark Elliot (1d Manchester) won the Cheshire Tournament. This was his first tournament for 30 years and a good test of whether his grade from the 1980s was still accurate. He beat Helen Harvey (1k Manchester) in the final of the 8-player top group. Two players of the 12-player handicap group ended on four wins.

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.

Thanks to John Collins we now have a new system to handle online Registration for our Tournaments. This does not handle any payments, but allows anyone to enter a tournament using a simple online form, provide an ICS calendar entry and also look at the list of publicly available entrants.

This system is available as a free service to any Tournament Organiser who is a BGA member.

It provides a number of options for specifying different classes of entrants, early booking discounts etc. and provides the organiser with the full list of entrants as well as a file suitable for direct import into Godraw to potentially make the draw for the first round of the tournament. Tournaments can be created from scratch, by cloning another one, e.g.

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).

So far we've received more than 60 entries for these three events, but it's a little disappointing that we don't have any UK players in the Under-20 Championship yet, especially with the prize of a trip to the World Under-20 Championship in Japan.

The entries we do have for the Under-20 range from 2 dan to 6 dan in strength, so it's definitely going to be a challenging tournament for any entrant.

We'd like to see more UK players in all the events, so if you know of someone young who might like to play (there's no entry fee) please get in contact with them and persuade them to come along.

Pandanet Go European Teams
28 January 2014

In the 6th round of the online teams league, the British team lost to Spain, but two games only by a very small amount. All the games went into overtime. First to finish was Martha McGill's game against Rogelio Gomes. Unfortunately some edge stones got captured and Martha had to resign. On board one Andrew Simons claimed our only win against Paco Garcia de la Banda. When Andrew killed one of Paco's large groups late on, Paco was unable to kill Andrew's back and had to resign. The other two games were very tight finishes and both ended at almost exactly the same time. Unfortunately we lost both: Des Cann lost to Jesus Roldan by 1.5 points and Sandy Taylor to José-Manuel Vega by 3.5 points. This left UK very mid-table with three wins, two losses and a draw. Spain's win put them up to third behind Bulgaria and C League leaders Turkey.

Full results for the season and game records can be seen here

We're please to be able to report that GoGoD is now back online, after a period of down-time, but at a different location:

After spending so many years on the GoGoD database, T Mark Hall was naturally keen that his legacy should endure.
