The article is about Alison Bexfield's participation in the World Amateur Pair Go Tournament, made the top half of page 4 and included a nice picture of her by a goban.

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Gerry died on Monday 14 November after a year battling cancer.

As you all know his grade was 1 dan, achieved in 1986, but much more importantly he was our Bookseller for more than 10 years. On his retirement from this role in 2010 he had been appointed a Life Member of the BGA, at which occasion this picture was taken.

The funeral will be at the Shrewsbury crematorium at 2.00 on Friday November 25, followed by a light buffet at a local hotel - venue yet to be decided.

Donations will be collected at the service and will be for the Severn Hospice where Gerry spent his final days. According to Simon Mills it is a truly wonderful place.

The BGA will be represented there by our Treasurer, Toby Manning.

It is with regret that we have to report the very tragic death of Xinyi Lu at the age of 26.

He was not just a Go player, but also an organiser and promoter of the game, being a BGA Council member from 2007 to 2010.

Xinyi died in an accident, while on holiday in China, at the beginning of October. His parents have created a website in his memory, some of you may wish to add your condolences there: https://sites.google.com/site/tributetoxinyi/

We offer our condolences to his parents and family.
