Minute of the AGM of the Irish GO Association
Place: Ballsbridge hotel
Date: January 28th, 2017
Attendees: Arthur Cater, Michael Thai, Phillipe Renaut, Claas Roever, Noel Mitchell, John Gibson, Rory Wales, Peter Kasko
2016 summary (Rory):
- President: Rory
23 members in 2016
Association did fairly well
Bought in 25 ING clocks / £20 each / £500
Most budget spent on clocks – should last for a reasonably long period of time
Negative: very few new players
Rory stepping down after 5 years suggested Tibi to take over
- Well established
Rory has done an extraordinary work maintaining it on his own
Organisation for future years has to be divided – suggested solution is one (two) person(s) looking after the logistics coming up to the cup weekend (may be outside Dublin), one person managing the cup weekend itself (preferably a “Dubliner”)
Rory to establish a connection with prof Wang and whoever takes over
Suggestion to involve the institute a lot more
Suggestion to employ a contractor for organising traveling matters for invited players
More discussions to follow after the Confucius cup (4-5 March)
Pair Go Summary (John)
- There will be a Pair Go tournament on Sunday May 14th at the Japanese Embassy in Nutley Centre.
As it will be a one day event probably a two or three round event for 4 pairs would be simplest.
The President of the World Pair Go Association will fly in from Paris to present a prize.
