" 24th Meeting ‘Go and Hiking in the Mountains’ at Ischgl (Austria) "
July 21. - 28. 2018

Deutscher Text







            Also in 2018, we shall have our yearly meeting with amateur Go players from Austria,
         Germany and, probably, from Japan.
         Mr. Hayashi Kozo, professional 6-Dan from Kansai Ki-in, announced to join our meeting.
         Of course, participants from other countries would also be welcome.

 

In 2018 we shall have the 24th meeting "Go and Hiking in the mountains" at the village Ischgl in the Paznaun
valley (District Tirol in Austria). Those who like playing Go and like the mountains as well, will meet like-minded
people during summer holidays at Ischgl. Also see here .

Ischgl ( http://www.ischgl.at ) is situated at 1.400m over sea level, around Ischgl there are many options for
hiking. For those which are no strong walkers, there are easy walking-tours on the ground of the valley and there
are cable cars for getting up to 2.700m over sea level.

For playing Go in the Hotel "Goldener Adler" there will be a comfortable extra room. There we play usually
after dinner – till late night – and when weather is too bad for walking.
The meeting is no tournament, everybody looks for an opponent to play a handicap game. The Professional invites
two people to play a teaching-game against him. Usually, on one evening, there will take place a team-match Japan
against Austria/Germany.
Sometimes, when weather is very good we play outdoors in the mountains at the cottage "Klein Zeinis", which
belongs to the hotel.

Since 1995, the meeting was organized by Mrs. Joshi Wiltschek († 2014) and Mr. Helmut Wiltschek (Mödling
near Vienna). They hold the contact to Japan and they helped Japanese people travelling to Ischgl.
