Announcement

At the request of the Brazilian Go Association we have given them permission to translate into Portuguese articles from the British Go Journal, with appropriate acknowledgements. This will help them popularise the game in Brazil, where the 2016 World Mind Sports Games is scheduled to be held.

Hopefully this will also help promote Go in Portugal, Mozambique, Angola and other Portuguese-speaking countries.

We understand that other South American countries, although Spanish speaking, are also interested in this project.

I've put in a few changes to the online league site to provide for the forthcoming Individual League.

People can update their status under "Update account" to indicate that they want to play in the Individual League. At the moment they'll just get plonked into the one and only division - we'll decide how the league is structured when we see how many people want to be included.

Carol Goodheir reports that BBC Alba did a news report on the Isle of Skye Tournament, in Scottish Gaelic, lasting just over two minutes.

It is available on YouTube. Any Manx or Irish Gaelic speakers might be able to follow it too, to some extent for sure.
