UK Teaching Event

Although no Go tournament took place, Roger Huyshe ran a stand with the aim of introducing some of the 500 attendees at this event in Cardiff to Go, managing to sell four beginner’s books and three basic sets as well as putting eight or nine people in touch with their nearest club and playing trial games with half a dozen. This was also the first outing of our new roller banner - available for use by anyone who needs to market Go at an event.

The most promising contact was with a couple who have Local Authority responsibility for 17 schools and are interested in setting up School Chess and Go clubs.

Also helping staff the stand were our Membership Secretary Paul Barnard, Welsh Champion Dylan Carter and, from the Cardiff Go Club, Neil Greenwood, Keiran Grayson and Club Secretary Neil Moffatt.

The weekend, 9-10 November is part of an ongoing series of events and will bring together some of the UK’s strongest players for an intensive training weekend with the aim of increasing the number of UK players graded over 2400. It is being organised by Alison Bexfield and held in Letchworth Garden City with Guo Juan as the resident professional.

It is by invitation only, and these will be sent to BGA members with a grade over 2100. There is a maximum number of 16 players and priority will be given according to Go strength, with some preference towards younger players.

Final confirmation will be sent out to those people who have responded by 30 September.

If you think you should have received an invitation, but have not, please contact Alison Bexfield (email: alison at bexfield.com)
