We hebben ook een Nederlandse pagina.
From 16 august 2008 till 21 august 2008 we again organize the SummerGo tournament! This time we are located at a fabulous place on the island Texel, the Netherlands. Our accomodation is De Zilvermeeuw, right near the beach.
Pepijn: "Together with Robert I inspected the spot for a day. We could visualize everything: 'there we can play games', 'the sun will be over there'. Even in the midst of winter a feeling of summer came over us: walking, swimming in the sea, and... playing go on the beach. I must say I find the diversity of the surrounding nature even better than our last SummerGo tournaments, but please: judge for yourself!"
Just as in previous years, we will play go, but there is plenty of time for other games. Anybody young or old, 30 kyu, or 9 dan is welcome.
We play at De Zilvermeeuw on Texel, between 500 hectares of woods, heaths and dunes, at a 5 minutes walk from the beach. The rooms for sleaping have different sizes.
If you prefer you could also book a hotel room and come to the tournament location in the morning. To find a hotel, go to the tourist information of Texel. There is no possibility of camping on-site.
We will arrange the breakfast, lunch and a tasty dinner for you every day. Drinks and snacks will also be provided.
