2021 World Amateur Go Championship 'in' Vladivostok - do you want to be our representative

2021 World Amateur Go Championship 'in' Vladivostok - do you want to be our representative


NZGSLogo

New Zealand Go Players

 

We recently received details of the 41st World Amateur Go Tournament, to be held in Vladivostok, Russia on June 2-10, 2021 - and Online.
 
The timeframe for registration is quite short - 20 April - People towards the top of the WAGC points list have been invited, but no-one has indicated interest so now we are asking all new Zealand players. Please let me know if you want to participate in the tournament or not by April 18. The person highest on our WAGC points list and is eligible will be our representative. (To be eligiable you must be a New Zealand Citizen)
 
I have heard the Russian Go federation is aiming to make this very special - and they will pay half the airfare and all your costs during the tournament! - If you can organise to get there and play in person rather than online :-(
 
I hope to hear from you soon
Best regards, Colin Grierson
