Belfast Go Tournament 2008

Posted by ian on August 6th, 2008

Belfast Go Tournament will see a number of changes this year. Firstly we will move to a slower 2 day format. Secondly, we are now in the Function Room of Belfast Boat Club, moving away from the stark modern art of the Crescent Arts Center.

  • Date – 27/28th September
  • Venue – Belfast Boat Club – Google Maps Link Exit the Stranmillis Roundabout toward Cutter’s Wharf pub. The Boat Club is actually signposted from the roundabout. The Boat Club is at the end of the road, just behind the Lagan Towpath. There is a free Car Park for the towpath just past Cutter’s, the Boat Club has its own small Car Park.
