From the 16th-18th November, fourteen of the UK's strongest players gathered together for a training event at Kirsty Healey and Matthew Macfadyen's house in Barford, Warwickshire. The format was similar to previous years, with the participants being split into two groups according to rating. One group played games while the other had their games reviewed. Later there was a chance to mix, with a match taking place between the two groups on Saturday evening.

Fantastic teaching was provided by the indefatigable Guo Juan, who gave four lectures and reviewed some fifty-six games over the course of the weekend. Kirsty and Nick Wedd proved excellent chefs, with meals being eaten on-site so as not to spend any time away from the Go boards.

Many thanks to Kirsty, Matthew and Nick for hosting, cooking and giving lifts (in various combinations). Of course, thanks are also due to Guo Juan: her teaching was inspiring as ever.

Chiddingstone Castle, Kent

We had a stand at the Japanese Festival on the August Bank Holiday Monday 2010 at Chiddingstone Castle, demonstrating and teaching successfully many parents and children (some as young as 3).

In the next room was a fascinating collection of high quality Japanese items including Samurai swords, armour, lacquerware and articulated insects. Sadly, the box with a depiction of a Samurai warrior on top of a Go board can't be photographed, but is on display when the castle is open.
