23rd Cheshire Go Tournament
Saturday 18th March 2023
Frodsham Community Centre, Fluin Lane, Frodsham, Cheshire, WA6 7QN
The Cheshire Go Tournament is being held again in 2023 at Frodsham Community Centre.
All players will compete in a three-round McMahon tournament to determine the Cheshire Open Go Champion.
We are planning to use Fischer Time on electronic clocks. The basic time will be 30 minutes per player, but you get an extra 10 seconds for each move you play. If your time runs out you lose - you are guaranteed at least 10 seconds to think on each move.
Prizes will be awarded to the winner and those winning three games. Other prizes at the organiser's discretion.
If you are not a member of the BGA, or of a foreign Go association, and not at your first tournament, add £5.
Coffee, tea and soft drinks will be available. Frodsham has several eating places for lunch time and there in a general store in the road opposite the Centre, or bring a packed lunch.
Frodsham can be reached via the M56. Leave at Junction 12, following signs to the A56 and continue on into Frodsham. Fluin Lane is the B5152 and runs south from the A56, immediately left after a footbridge over the road. There are signs to the Community Centre, which is on the right. There is a large free car park.
Frodsham station is on the line between Manchester and North Wales, half way between Warrington (11 minutes) and Chester (13 minutes), and on the Liverpool - Chester service via Runcorn. On a Saturday services arrive on both routes in time for the event (08:44 from Piccadilly arrives 09:30; 09:47 from Lime Street arrives 10:15, 09:52 from Chester arrives 10:06). From the south or north change at Chester, Runcorn or Warrington Bank Quay as appropriate. Please check whether disruption by strikes or engineering work will affect your journey.
Turn right at the bottom of the station approach, turn right again and bear east along the High Street for 500m and turn right into Fluin Lane. A shorter route is to exit the south side and turn left across the car park to the sloping path at the far end. Follow this path straight on into a close called Blue Hatch which has the Community Centre on its right.
The Holiday Inn Runcorn is not too far away; Book online, or phone 0800 405060. There are various guest houses in the area.
