Special General Meeting January 2021

Due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic many of the administrative and planning tasks of the EGF couldn't be handled at the usual Annual Meeting in July 2020. Several countries couldn't vote at that meeting as they had lost their status as a developing country, and they would have needed to pay 200 € instead of the reduced fee of 50€. This was the reason this special meeting got set up to give all participants time to create a better fairer fee system which would be presented and voted upon in this special meeting. In the meantime the European Go Cultural Center in Amstelveen near Amsterdam was sold and with the financial proceedings from this sale the Iwamoto Europe Foundation will be set up.

Below I list some of the highlights:
  • No one got elected to the foundation but 5 candidates presented themselves, the election will take place at the next annual meeting in July.
  • The new fee system was not voted upon, instead a lengthy discussion was carried out to find some common ground on the topic. This discussion will be continued in a group of system makers and hopefully we can vote on a good solution at our next AGM.
  • Each participant of the European Go Congress contributes 20€ to the prize pool for the European Championship.
  • The European Go Database had 3 change requests which were all accepted:
    • Online tournaments can now be organized the same way as over the board tournaments with no special checks to see if a player is member of a country's organization.
    • 9x9 and 13x13 tournaments can be entered in the database if all participants are below 20 kyu. 
    • Online tournaments can have higher classes if they are official or well organized. Till now they all had to be entered as a Class D which means that the games were only counted at a ¼  of the full weight compared to face to face tournaments.
  • The organizers of the next congress in Kamianets-Podilskyi Ukraine are positive that they can hold the event this year. The European Youth Championship which was supposed to happen in spring in Prague got moved to the second week of the congress, fingers crossed that this all plays out okay and that we can meet again in the flesh and play with real stones on real boards.
All the details can be found in the minutes or in the 5 hours recording of the online meeting.
