Hague Shogi and Beer 2020

Corona update
 Due to the COVID-19 cancellations we will change the schedule of the tournament from 2 days 6 rounds to a 1 day 4 rounds tournament. 
We want to inform the players that participate in the Shogi and Beer tournament. The event will still take place this weekend. Regarding the new rules from the Dutch government since we have less than 100 participants fortunately the tournament is still on. In case you have (mild) symptoms the advice is to stay at home. 
See you all this weekend in the Hague and good luck. In case of updates they will be posted online.
PS: our government also suggest us to not shake hands. So let's do a Japanese bow instead. And don't forget to wash hands often.
