Oxford Go Club welcomes Korean Professionals — 6th March 2007

On Tuesday 6th March 2007, Oxford Go Club welcomes:

We have brief biographies of our visitors.

We also welcome visitors from other Go clubs, as well as Go players from the Korean community in UK. We extend an invitation to members of the Oxford University Korea Society, as well as the Oxford Chinese Students and Scholars Association, and Oxford University Japan Society.

We hope to have simultaneous play with both An YoungKil, and Lee JungWoo.

There are further details, including brief biographies, photos, etc of the visitors, the Korean Ambassador's Cup, and of the rest of their trip to Europe.

When, and where?

We meet in LR 3, Thom Building, Department of Engineering Science, Parks Road, Oxford.

Date: Tuesday 6th March 2007

Arrival from 7:15 pm; refreshments available nearby.

Meeting starts 7:45 pm. We expect to finish the meeting by 10:15 pm


Our professional visitors — An YoungKil, and Lee JungWoo — are very generously giving their time for free. There is therefore no charge. However, BGA members are asked to make a contribution of GBP 10 (GBP 5 unwaged) towards room hire, and refreshments.

How to get there

The venue is just north of the city centre (less than 10 minutes walk), and about 5 minutes walk (east) from our normal club venue in Freuds Cafe.

The Department of Engineering Science has detailed advice on getting there, by road and rail. That page has links to a couple of maps — the more useful map shows the buildings, and the private car-parking, and the other one shows the wider picture.

Note that pedestrians, bus-, and taxi-users should start at Banbury Road. You will find a 2 metre wide metal staircase to the left of the building, which will take you to the first floor entrance to Reception. There will be plenty of signs! This is marked "R" on "the more useful map" link above.

A "streetmap" map shows the location. You can also see the Railway station (bottom left, and about 15 minutes walk), Coach Station (bottom centre — Gloucester Green — near "Beaum. St. A4144", and less than 10 minutes walk).

You may prefer this Virtual Earth, 3D bird's eye view, facing East, of the buildings between Banbury Road, and Parks Road – Thom building is the tallest building, and is at the right of the picture.


We have a limited number of Free "visitor" parking permits -- if you are likely to want one of these, please contact the organiser in advance, if possible. For "visitor" parking, when coming from the north (A4165), go down Parks Rd, and use first available entrance on right — use spaces marked "DF", obtain parking permit from organiser, and display (else pay GBP 90 fine!) — this is marked "P" on the "useful map" link above.

There is also normal Pay-and-Display parking nearby (Keble Road — can enter from Parks Road, only), or on St Giles.
