Go Animation in Landerneau

Sunday 26 January, Home of the French cities of Landerneau invited us to make discover the Go game to world's games fans. The afternoon initiation was very friendly : Morgane, Florian and I were able to share our passion to ten people, intrigued by this game “complicated” or wishing to rediscover the game that brightened their youth. A snack was served in a very relaxed atmosphere, and novices could express their thanks for having spent a very pleasant afternoon with us. Finally, our host, Marie-Agnès, invited us to participate in another activity Sunday 6 April, a 4.500 years old game and native from Mesopotamia.

Front wooden games, old games, strategy games, Skill games, card games and so on, whole families come together to enjoy moments of sharing such that in fact more (or at least not enough).

Welcomed by the new organizing team, Tenuki saw attributing a beautiful location, conducive to initiations as the entrance to the room Surcouf (remember last year, the stand was on the staircase, put back compared to the rest) and in front of his partner Ludik Addict. On the weekend of 16 and 17 November, about 200 people have been initiated in the game of Go, with as many children and adolescents as parents and grandparents. Read flyers, who spun like hotcakes, and a general feeling of satisfaction from visitors suggests that new members will join shortly to Brest Go community .

As for the organization of the festival, it was well done by the new Director. Exhibitors were invited to share lunch together, donated by the Navy; and the icing on the cake, an evening crêpes and pancakes waiting for Saturday night, en compagnie de charmantes crêpières dont le talent n’avait d’égal que l’appétit de Morgane 😉 .

Finally, Festival of World Games was a great crowd warm bath in which some have discovered the venerable game of Go. For those who missed their particular initiation, no worries, our location is already booked for next year !

This presentation was, this time, an audience of young children exclusively (end of primary classes), it was assured by Kevin Cuello and Pierre-Antoine Gueguen, to each occupant of a group of 6 children (3 parties 9×9/ Atarigo).

After a brief introduction but properly capturing stones, our young students clashed in parts of Atarigo, quickly took some shots of the hand, to the great satisfaction of our two professors !

On these 2 days, nearly a hundred people, often families, had the opportunity to "hit" the goban at atari-Go sessions 9×9. Some children have also shown very early in the understanding of the activity, and had the opportunity to beat their parents or siblings in a friendly and family.

Bilan Brest Japan Festival 2012

Here is the report of the Club participated in Go to the 4th edition of the Japan Festival Brest (8 – 13 October) the 10 and 13 October.

Over the entire duration of the event, are 542 who attended and participated in the various activities offered by the MPT and associations around Japan.

On the Go club :

Wednesday 10 : Initiations and presentation of the game of Go for children MPT _ 2:30 p.m. – 17h30 _ Romain et Kevin

At the base, it was expected that we 2 group 10 children, one hour per group, then 1 group bringing together those who wanted during the last hour. Unfortunately, everything has not gone as well as on the provisional schedule.

The first hour was devoted to exploring the game of Go, through a powerpoint broadcast on television room on the history and culture of the world Go, and associate a practice through the atari-Go, little game to become familiar with the capture stones. The last time was to explore this discovery further with the game in its practical part and initiating children to parties “traditional” on gobans 9×9.

The first group was composed of only 5 children and one facilitator, who are much interested in the business as and when we were presenting their. They were very eager to participate in the second part.
The second hour, we have received no group of children… Fortunately, some unsuspecting visitors (external to the MPT) infiltrated our room, suddenly we took advantage of to make their initiations, which really enjoyed.
The last hour…person… A facilitator told us that all the children had gone, it remained for us to pack up.

Saturday 13 : Go to initiations _ 14h visitors – 17h30 _ Kevin, Pierre-Antoine and Alice

At the base (again concerns, ralala), we must be 5 Facilitators, but we did our best with our limited number.

The purpose of this afternoon was to introduce more people to the game of Go, in the framework of the promotion of this activity in Brest. We were not disappointed. We 3 with 8 gobans 9×9, to provide introductions to 13 people at once, and 14:15 until 17:30, there was 2 players per goban, excluding many observers, intrigued by the rules of our activity.

A Birds Eye View, about a hundred people passed by our booth, a good half have participated in initiations.

Balance sheet :
It was a really good experience. A repeat :)
