First off, the Cape Town club welcomes Trevor Hill, a 23-kyu who’s a colleague of Andrew Davies.

Congratulations on promotions go to Markus Jager, who has reached 11 kyu, and Louis de Jager, 15 kyu.

In the Western Cape Closed, Bernard Broens defeated Chris Welsh to claim victory in the winners’ bracket of the preliminary tournament to claim one of the 2 open spots in the Western Cape Meijin Challenger’s League. Chris is still in the running in the losers’ bracket, where his remaining competition is David Richfield, Jaco Swanepoel and Steve Kroon.

In the World Go Oza, Yang Shi-hai of Hong Kong won the Africa/Oceania/Rest-of-Asia playoff for the final open berth of the main tournament, which means Victor Chow and Guo Yi Ming (of Oceania) have been eliminated. I don’t have any further information, but will post any news I get later.

Finally, news is South Africa has been invited to another world amateur championship supported by the International Go Federation – this one’s hosted in Korea, in the city of Incheon, and seems to be run on a very similar basis to the WAGC. The SAGA council is currently finalising the selection guidelines, with the current proposal being to employ the same credit points system used for the WAGC.
