We will as always be playing in the cafeteria at the Informatics building(Ole Johan Dahls Hus). The club will meet as from 17:00 to prepare for the beginner course and then the beginner course starts at 18:00.

the beginner course will start of with experienced players showing the beginners the rules and then we will all play some atari Go which is a simplified version of Go to let you quickly get a feel for the basics of the game.

The rules of Go is extremely simple, you can probably learn them in a minute or two but the depth and strategy hidden in this game is never ending to the extent you can learn something new even after a lifetime of playing.

You can also check out our facebook arrangement for the beginner course here: https://www.facebook.com/events/959335621278394/

Hope you all have a great start on the new semester and looking forward to play with you all.

NM i Go er avlyst

Dette er, og har vært, et merkelig år for Go i Norge. Ingen fysiske turneringer er blitt spilt siden koronaviruset kom. Iløpet av vår-halvåret ble både Trondheim Open og Olso Open holdt som en-dags online turneringer istedet.

NM er i år avlyst. Det var en stund en håp om at vi kunne arrangere NM iløpet av høsten, men nå med den utviklingen de siste ukene ser vi at det ikke vil være mulig.

Iløpet av høsten har go klubbene begynt igjen der det lar seg gjøre. Smittesituasjonen gjør at det varierer fra uke til uke, men for de som ønsker å møtes fysisk for å spille kan man finne mer informasjon om det på her:

Norge – Slovakia: 2 – 2

Forrige uke startet del to av 2019/2020 sesongen av Pandanet Go European Team Championshpi for Norge med en kamp mot Slovakia.

Slovakia har gjort det bra så langt i ligaen, og har et par poeng mer enn Norge, så vi er et godt steg på vei å sikre plassen i C ligaen når vi nå klarte å spille uavgjort mot dem denne gangen.

Neste motstander er Slovenia, som Norge møter den 25. februar. Norge ligger idag over dem i ligaen, men skiller bare 1 poeng. Så det vil være viktig kamp for å sikre videre spill i C ligaen!

Under følger partiene fra runden:

Severin Hanevik, 3D (sort) – Xaver Gubáŝ, 3D (hvit): W+Res
Heming Hanevik, 2D (hvit) – Marian Hrdina, 1 kyu (sort): B+9.5
Jon Runar Melting, 1D (sort) – Peter Smolarik, 1 kyu (hvit): B+Time
Kjetil Hjartnes, 2 kyu (hvit) – Martin Strelka, 1 kyu (sort): W+7.5

Go camp på Askøy, Bergen

Vi har nettopp mottatt denne invitasjone fra Antti Törmänen, 1p, til en go camp på Askøy like utenfor Bergen. Campen er fra 3. – 9. august.

Nedenfor følger teksten fra Antti Törmänen, og her er link til invitasjonen.

It is my pleasure to invite all Nordic go players to the ’Go Retreat at Ask Island’ in Bergen, Norway on 3–9 August 2020!

It has long been my dream to start holding events in Northern Europe that bring together traditional Asian go philosophy and the Nordic lifestyle. Last year, by chance I came upon the Ask Retreat Centre in Bergen, which seemed like the perfect location to try out my concept. The retreat centre has many separate buildings that are made for meditation and yoga, but also make for a great go-playing environment – you can check out some of the retreat centre’s photos here. Together with our team of organisers, we are looking to create a relaxed learning experience where you can make acquaintances with other go enthusiasts from the Nordic countries, and also around the world!

Because our venue is relatively small, we can only host 30 people, including the organisers. There are in total 14 accommodation spots at the venue for students, and we can additionally take in eight students who arrange their own accommodation. At the time of writing, there are only five spots with accommodation and six spots without accommodation remaining – so, if you want to register, please respond to this email (send an email to antti@tormanen.net) as soon as possible! For the time being, registering is not binding.

The full participation fee of the go retreat is 800 euro for six nights, which includes accommodation, teaching (lectures and reviews of league games), three vegetarian meals a day, morning yoga, side activities (go-related and not), and car transport from Bergen airport to the venue and back. If the participant arranges their own accommodation, the fee is 300 euro.

The Ask Retreat Centre provides us wonderful recreational facilities. As you can see in the attached promotional leaflet, the venue itself is stunning, and we can easily arrange mountain hiking and fishing trips. There is also a sauna and swimming possibility, and one of the many buildings we have rented includes a video projector and audio system.

Join us to make this retreat a success!
