Change of plans! Ladies and gentlemen, owing to a minor error on the part of Durham Go Club's exec, our theoretical venue has been double-booked! We will now be in Elvet Riverside, just the other side of the river from our normal venue - drop us a line for more information if required. The rest of the tournament plans have not changed!

Durham has several hotels and B&Bs; some useful places to look are listed below.
Since the tournament is held during term time, accommodation in Colleges is likely to be limited. However, there may be some accommodation available, see Durham Colleges for more information.
A limited amount of crash-space may be available with student Go players for the deserving. Please contact us if you would like us to try to find some for you.
On Friday evening, Go players will be gathering in the on Hallgarth St, certainly from 8:30pm and probably earlier. The Vic has three rooms; if you can't find us, ask at the bar, or just keep walking around the rooms until you find us.
On Saturday evening we will be descending en masse for some kind of delicious sustenance, with more details nearer the time as our normal chinese buffet has closed. Afterwards, we'll go back to the Vic again. There are many other eateries if you prefer and we can make recommendations at the time if you like.
There will probably be further ad hoc socialisation happening on Sunday evening for those who are not travelling home until Monday; quite what will depend on who is around!
