Tournament in the Netherlands
  • erwin vd berg at 2005-01-05

    for the intrest onces there will be held a dutch tournament on the 16th of januari.
    It’s almost certain on that date and if some foreign people will come will that do many good :).

    further info wil come...

    You say “it's almost certain on that date”. Do you mean there is a chance that the tournament will not be held on 16 January? In that case I would like to suggest to organise the tournament one week later, 23 January. Organising tournaments on such a short notice is not a good development for the Dutch Othello society (remember the October 2004 tournament). Are there any people with me?

    that was because more reasons, like qualifications points. But change the date is even worse for the fedaration. I tried to contact players directly and afther this tournament everything wil change..

  • erwin vd berg at 2005-01-06

    but you will come, robin? :)

  • Robin at 2005-01-06

    I won’t be able to come. I will play in the Dutch EGP tournament and the Gdansk EGP tournament. About all other tournaments I don’t know if I can come, since no agenda has been published for 2005.

  • erwin vd berg at 2005-01-06

    is that your only reason? no agenda 2005?
    separate your principals from your love to play othello! :) there will come better times, have a little understanding for the situation. I’m working really hard to get a tournament and if everyone not come because of principals... than the NOV doesn’t have any future. Your not hte only one that don’t come because of principals. In the past i had the same principals and criticism but i see that it work the other way! So “roei met de riemen die we hebben” ;) If i don’t organize this tournament nobody does and the future of othello in the netherlands will be terrible. If you want to help the NOV come to the tournament :)

    I can’t play in the tournament of 16 January because I will be in Poland that day. The reason that I don’t know yet if I will be able to attend other Dutch tournaments is because I don’t know when they will be held. Principles have nothing to do with it. However, an agenda would be very useful for obvious reasons.

  • Robin at 2005-01-06

    I’d like to add that I’m willing to organise a tournament in the region of Rotterdam.

  • erwin vd berg at 2005-01-06

    ok, that’s great! hope some foreign players can come..

  • mmbeer at 2005-01-06

    For those who can’t go to the dutch tournament, there is also beeing held a tournament in Denmark in the city Nykøbing Falster (close to the German border) It would be fun for us too to get some foreigners! All the best players in Denmark are comming, ang Both Germany ande Poland are not to far away!

  • mmbeer at 2005-01-06

    Oh I forgot the date... It’s on january 29.
