One of the biggest RIF title competitions, Asian Championship, is supposed to take place in China in this month. Today is October 20, and I have not heard anything from organizers. There has not been any announcement about the tournament location, dates, conditions, etc. Usually such details are announced 4-12 months before the event. Also, there has been no information about giving up or postponing the hosting of the event. Perhaps some other channels than RIF are used for spreading the necessary information that I am not aware of? If so, could anyone please let me know more about the situation of Asian Championship, so that I could update Renjunet accordingly. Thank you!

I feel really worried, because it is the first time in RIF 20 year history when an important title competition was just "forgotten" by organizers. Maybe we are living in more chaotic world than before?

Dear colleagues! Thanks of Ando Meritee that it remembers realisation of the Championship of Asia. Asia where renju extends more fast than on other continents - has all possibilities for continuation of this tournament. Therefore I suggest to conduct the Championship of Asia in Uzbekistan in October, 2009 in connection with the unknown circumstances of force majeure which have arisen in China. I hope that all countries of Asia where play renju can participate in this tournament. For this purpose Uzbekistan has all organizational possibilities and the warranty in my person. Yours faithfully. Andrey Khramov the numerous participant of the World championships, Europe and Asia.
