2011 Belfast Open

Posted by ian on June 21st, 2011

The Belfast Open tournament will take place at Belfast Boat Club in the Stranmillis area of Belfast on the 27th and 28th of August. Belfast Boat club is close to the city centre and thus relatively easy to find. There is ample free car parking space beside the venue.

The event will again be played in the Upstairs Function Room (the restaurant) of Belfast Boat Club. (You can ask at reception if you get lost, but there is only one staircase.) The Belfast Open is an EGF Class B tournament, and will count toward both Irish Korea Points and the British Stacey points. This year we will have 5 rounds.
NOTE! As of Tuesday the 16th Aug. there are only a few places left, so don’t book anything before contacting me to check that you can still enter. There is only room for 30 players.
