The Martinicup is the annual tournament of the Go Club Groningen. In 2013 we're playing in the weekend of 27-28 April.
The tournament will be held in the PvdA building in the centre of the city. There will be cheap consumptions available at the location (50ct for coffee, thee, soft drinks). On saturday and sunday, a free lunch will be available for the contestants. On saturday evening, we will eat pizza at the venue, after which people are welcome to hang around and play more go or other games.

On saturday at a quarter past eleven, an intercity arrives from The Hague via Schiphol, Lelystad, Zwolle. Participants coming via Utrecht can switch trains in Zwolle.
There is also a train arriving 11:37 on Saturday from Leer (Ostfriesland, Germany), connecting for eg: Oldenburg, Bremen, Hamburg and Hannover. From Bremen and Oldenburg, there is also an express busline: http://www.publicexpress.de/
From the train station it is only about 700 meters walking distance to the playing venue, so taking a bus is not worth the effort.
