Belfast Go Tournament 2007

The tournament will take place in Belfast on Saturday the 13th of October in the Performing Arts Studio (Gym) of the Crescent Arts Centre, 2-4 University Road, Belfast BT7 1NH. Parking in the vicinity is not usually a problem. The Europa Bus Station (Glengall Street) and Belfast Central (Rail) Station (East Bridge Street) are within walking distance. The Crescent Arts Centre is located in the heart of the University Quarter, there are plenty of places around to eat and drink.

For a variety of reasons we ask you to pre-register,

  • The Performing Arts Studio only has a capacity for around 30 players.
  • We need to ensure we have enough equipment for all the games.
We would really hate for anyone to be unlucky enough to turn up, only for us to have to tell them there is no room left.

To register simply email us with your name and rank. If you can bring along a clock that would be great. You can also use this email address if you have any other questions.

You can also try contacting myself (Ian Davis) by phone: 07952184010 (mobile) or 028 9037 6635 (work)
