Dear renju friends,

We are glad to inform you that from 6th to 10th of January, 2016 we shall organize the Open International Team Tournament in St. Petersburg, Russia. By that we are going to restore well-known Leningrad New Year Prize tournament and Open Russian Team Championship both rolled into one.:)

Preliminary schedule:
Jan. 6 – Arrival day
Jan. 7-10 – Playing days

A team shall consist of 4 basic players and 1 reserve (optional). We prefer if the team would represent some country (for foreign teams) either region or town (for Russian teams), but we are happy to take in any team formed by any method, as well.

The tournament will be held in the Copy Center on Vosstaniya str. 1, just opposite the Moscow Railway Station, in the center of St. Petersburg.

For accommodation of participants we can offer two main variants:

1). Comfortable hotel "Oktyabrskaya" which is situated opposite the playing hall, on the other side of Ligovsky pr.

2). Hostel "Friends" which is situated on Vosstaniya str. 2 min. walk from the playing hall.

We also can find cheaper places, but they are situated farther. Such applications will be considered personally.

Near the playing hall there is quite cheap café, where we could have meals in time of the tournament.

Please, send your applications to
