Simon Eve Memorial Supper, 6.30, Sat Feb 16th 2013

When, and Where?

The Supper will be held immediately following the 2013 Oxford Go Tournament – to start at 6.30 on Saturday February 16th 2013. We must finish by 8.30 pm. The tournament is being held, as usual, in St Edmund Hall, Oxford, OX1 4AR – check out the bird's eye view map, and the normal streetmap (or its printable version). The meal will be in a Chinese restaurant – SoJo – in the town centre, between the Bus Station and the Railway Station. The food is both very good quality, and reasonably priced.


We plan to have a shared meal. The proposed menu, includes provision for up to 5 vegetarians. Please tell the organiser if you are a vegetarian.

The cost of the food alone will be 17.50 (includes the 10% service charge). We will each pay for our own drinks separately.

Cheaper options exist, and individuals may order separately. However, this is expected to cause delays, and if you plan to do this, you must tell the organiser, well in advance – thank you.


Please book (with us, not the restaurant!) online when you register for the tournament via the tournament registration page.

Simon Eve

Simon was an enthusiastic Go player who lived in Henley-on-Thames, but latterly had played mainly in the Oxford City Go Club. He often brought with him both his friend Dave Smewing, and his nephew, Felix Eve. He sometimes also brought his partner Ali Welch, and even got his brother Alex to supplement his attendance at his local Milton Keynes Club with visits to us at Oxford.

After the 2007 Oxford Go Tournament, Simon organized a very enjoyable meal for about a dozen Go players. It was hoped that this would be extended, in years to come, to include more players from the Midlands and the South of England. Sadly, less than 3 months after the Oxford Tournament – on Friday 4th May 2007 – Simon died suddenly. Since then we have had this meal to continue what he started.

He is missed by many friends, and Go players. The Supper is intended to be a joyful remembrance of his life, and a chance for us all to meet Go players we normally meet only over the Go board.
