EUROPEAN PAIR GO CHAMPIONSHIP 2012: LYON, June 2nd and 3rd
We are pleased to invite you to the 15th European PairGo Championship, June 2/3 2012. It will take place in the center of Lyon, in the old town:
"La Maison des Passages", 44 rues saint Georges, 69005 Lyon.
La Maison des Passages is located just in front of Saint Georges Church. The "Vieux Lyon" subway station is 5 minutes by foot.
The old town is very attractive and an UNESCO site. All along the Saône River, from Saint Georges to Saint Paul and around Saint Jean, Old Lyon is full of interesting architecture, small wine bars and restaurants, pedestrian zones and terraces to relax. Just above, on the Fourvière Hill, you can visit the roman amphitheatre, Fourvière Basilica and its gardens.

About the Championship:
Conditions applicable to participations:
EGF Referee: Raffaella Giardino
EGF new point:
The European PairGo Champions will win a seat to participate in the International Amateur PairGo Championship in Tokyo (3/4th November 2012), with the same conditions as all other European pairs (9 or 10 additional, not yet decided). The main point: This is the first time that a pair can win a ticket for the Championship directly, without being nominated by the national organization and independent of the points their "passport-country" has currently ( see http://eurogofed.org/egf/pairpoints.htm ). If the top-pair does not want to go to Japan, the next best placed gets the opportunity, and so on.
Motoki Noguchi, 7 dan, will be present throughout the event. He will give commentaries and run a workshop Saturday evening starting at 20:30.
For each round, the first two gobans will be broadcasted on IGS Pandanet.
Because of the very nice location of the youth hostel (you can see the entire town from the terrace), it is very often full. So if you are interested, do not wait to reserve. To do so, and take advantage of the negociated prices, do not reserve directly at the youth hostel but send an email to contacts and detail how many persons and which nights.
