Teachers' Day on October 20th

October 12 2017 by Kim Ouweleen

On Friday 20 October, one day before the 25 Years EGCC Anniversary Go Tournament, the EGCC organises a Teachers' Day. For this special seminar, we welcome all enthusiastic go teachers in Europe!

Go teachers are at the forefront of the spread and promotion of go. Hence they fulfill an important role in the direction that our sport will take. This event gives you an opportunity to discuss your ideas with other go teachers and to learn about the current methods and trends in teaching go.
We are happy that two special guests from the Nihon Ki-in will join us for this symposium: Mr. Yamashiro Hiroshi 9p (vice-president of the Nihon Ki-in) and Cătălin Țăranu 5p.

Cleaning of all Go Material!

October 5 2017 by Kim Ouweleen

For the upcoming 25 Years EGCC Anniversary Go Tournament, Justyna Klęczar, Michał Łukasiewicz and Kim Ouweleen started a project to clean all the go equipment in the centre! This includes about 55 Katsura and Kaya go boards of 5.5 cm thick and around 20.000 Slate and Shell go stones.

There are many stages to the process. The endresult, however, will be worth the effort; we are excited to offer all participants of the tournament freshly cleaned go sets to play on!

Please have a look at the following photo reportage of the first cleaning session, which took place on Sunday 1 October.
