Last weekend, UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion hosted the 9th annual Cork Go Tournament. The turnout was modest, with a total of 11 people participating across the two days. A shame, since the atmosphere, and the weather, were great!

Kudos to Mike, first time tournament director, for pulling off the event so smoothly. Looks like it will be in good hands for the next few years. Unless I am miscounting, 2016 will be the milestone 10th tournament – no pressure ^^
