East Midlands
Leicester
14 October 2012

The East Midlands was again held at the Space Centre in Leicester and as usual players were able to visit the exhibition between rounds. Unfortunately the Leicester marathon was on, which caught out one player who had to miss the first round. Running out the winner this year was Jon Diamond; he beat Warwick's Bruno Poltronieri in the last round. Also winning three wins were Edward Blockley (5k Worcester), Matthew Adron (7k Sheffield) and Stephen Bashforth (13k Leicester). The Northampton club team was pleased when two of their players went home unbeaten: Laura Streamer (10k) and Ross Kane (19k). 39 players took part including a goodly number in the lower kyu grades.

Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Pandanet
25 September 2012

The 3rd season of the Pandanet Go European Team Championship has begun, with the UK team again in League B. The team is largely the same as before, but at the top features the addition of Vanessa Wong 6d, current European Women's Champion, who will hopefully help us improve on our position of 5th place last season.

Unfortunately our campaign got off to a bad start, losing 0-4 to Austria.

Vanessa had to drop out so new team member Martha McGill stepped up to play on board 4 against Jürgen Suntinger.

Shropshire
Hinstock
29 September 2012

The erstwhile Shrewsbury Tournament was moved to a country location this year, the little village of Hinstock, just south of Market Drayton. The Memorial Hall proved to be a spacious and pleasant venue, and it should be even better next year when the extension has been completed.
