     Go is sadly not very known in Norway, but since my first encounter with Pair Go in 2012 at IAPGC, I've tried to introduce Pair Go to new players and also to attract more female players. Hopefully in the future we will see more players of both genders here in Norway.

     I knew of kindness and courtesy that exist in Japan, and most left me with an immense debt of gratitude for the care of the details. They left a mark on my heart.

     I was asked to bring national costume, but we do not wear it. So I asked my friend and she told us to rent a costume from costume shop. That was very convenient!

     I hope the tournament will continue uniting the people who love the "Go" and can further strengthen the bonds of brothers of all countries, because the "Go" is the language that unites us as a family.

     We almost missed our plane to Japan to attend the tournament in 2012. So, we called the airport staff from the train that we are going to Pair Go tournament and asked if the plane can wait for us. What a surprise - the guy from aircraft was aware of Go and he said he is a Go player, so he will do his best to wait for us. And we did it!

     I had great memories from my participation to the IAPGC, which meant also the first visit to Japan. Being there was quite a privilege.
  • Laura Augustina Avram
     The story of my fiance and me is related to Pair Go. He is from Finland. Before the European Go Congress 2011, I was looking for a Pair Go partner and my friend introduced me to Jesse, now my fiance. Since then, we started dating and at the beginning of this year he proposed to me. Last year, we won the first place at the National Finnish Go Championship. We are now planning to get married, but also we play Pair Go together whenever we have the opportunity.

     I play Pair Go since the 90s but at the beginning it wasn't something serious, my individual career as a Go player was more important. Nowadays I think both are legitimate pursuits. This 25th aniversary should become a great way to let people know about Pair Go, to make it popular among Go players.
