The Online Study Group (formerly Shodan Challenge) will be starting on 29th November and running for six weeks. Players of any strength who wish to improve their go-playing abilities are very welcome!

You are encouraged to choose a goal to work towards for six weeks, and a study plan to follow during that time. Using the group, you can arrange matches with players of similar strengths, request / offer teaching games, or discuss variations of a game you have played or watched. There will be a league system in place to help you find opponents of around your strength.

(Stronger players are also encouraged to join to help review games and offer advice. Please note that you are only committing to six weeks at a time, and you are not assigned individual students to mentor, so the level of commitment required is low!)

To sign up, please send an email to me with your name and approximate rank (if applicable).

Many of you will remember the fine work done by Gerry Mills, in taking a BGA bookstall to a large number of tournaments and on top of that providing a mail-order operation for books and sets.

Roger Huyshe is restarting this service, albeit in a smaller way as he points out that he cannot dedicate a whole room in the house to a large stock of Go books and equipment. So a mail-order service is not offered; the service is face-to-face.

He will bring the bookstall and sample boards to all tournaments that he attends. For those that plan ahead, they can ask for a specific item and find a way to manage delivery e.g. at a later tournament or via another Go player.

All profit goes to the BGA.

We're pleased to announce that old tournament results have now been linked to the Tournament Records on our website. This will allow you to easily browse details of old events for each tournament, going back to 1996 in many cases.

See the London Open for an example.

As previously announced in the British Go Journal and elsewhere we are pleased to launch the new Members' Section for our website.

This will contain

  • electronic versions of the British Go Journals for the last year - PDFs, SGFs and Problems/Solutions
  • Council Meetings and Annual General Meeting Minutes
  • Annual Accounts
  • Policies
  • Archive contents

In addition there is a document approved by Council about the initial version of this Members Area.

The Ratings List and Organisers Handbooks will continue to be publicly available, together with some of the Policies which may be clearly relevant to non-members (such as Child Protection).

Council will review the operation and contents of this area, probably initially in 3-4 months time, so if you have any comments please let us know.

In order to minimise the effort expended in managing usernames/passwords, and given that the security level needed is fairly low, there will be initially a single account for all member

Online League
KGS
22 March 2013 - 31 December 2013

The fifth season of the BGA Online League is now under way.

To balance the divisions out, I have moved Belfast and Billericay up to division 1, Glasgow up to division 2 and then done the draw for matches in each division.

As last year there are two matches between each pair of teams, a notional "home" and "away" match. Please try to complete at least one match if you can't fit in both matches. If you do play both, please try to field a different set of three players for each match against the same opposing team if possible.

If you have any problems and difficulties please don't hesitate to ask me or an "old hand" if available.

I hope everyone enjoys themselves this season and we look forward to seeing some interesting games!

John Collins
