Martinicup 2009 moves to spring 2010

In 2009 the Martinicup will not be held. De Go club Groningen has been toying with the idea to move the Martinicup from fall to spring for several years now. In fall, there are already a lot of tournaments, while spring doesn't have many serious tournaments Furthermore, Groningen is a city with many terraces, but november is not the best month for drinking a cold beer outside.

Because a lot of the members of the club put all their energy into organizing the European Go Congress, this year was deemed ideal to make the switch. So Groningen 2009 will only refer to the congress, and not to a martinicup

The Martinicup 2010 planned for 17-18 april, location will be the PvdA building on the Haddingestraat.
