We had the immense honor, here in Galway, to receive the visit of Matthew Macfadyen, 6 dan and 25 times UK champion.
The session was a busy one : we were having one of our not-so-usual-but-usual-anyway wine and go evening session at my home plus some students who were already practicing with me in their school who decided to join the evening club plus some new beginners and finally Matthew and his wife Kirsty who joined out of the blue. Altogether, 17 players took place around gobans in the middle of glasses, tables, chairs, arms and legs, and it was cosy, and it was messy and it was absolutely great time ! Matthew played something like 14 games, with simultaneous games, commented games, and Kirsty teached some new beginners about the game. Their kindness and generosity brought a fabulous atmosphere to the evening and the Galway go club wanted to thank them deeply for their venue ! We are all going to play again and again so that for their next trip to Galway, Matthew will meet three or four 6 dans to compete with 😉 !
in the name of all Galway Go Club players
