Dear Shogi players,
we would like to invite you to the tenth Pullach Open shogi tournament in Pullach near Munich on the last weekend of May. The youth hostel where we will be playing is a very nice castle on the high bank of the Isar river, a few kilometers to the south of Munich. If you have not been here, this would be a perfect opportunity for holiday in Munich! 😉

you can find some details about our tournament. We hope to see you soon in Munich!
