Hi,
the EGC is only a few months away, so a question for any European players who would like to comment:

Are you going to the EGC this year or not and why?

I am definitely going this year, looks like it will be the last congress in a 100% European country for a long time, with Russia and Turkey organising the 2016 and 2017 EGC. The plane tickets to those countries will probably be too expensive for me.

St. Petersburg is a stone away from Helsinki, flights not really expensive.
Also there are very cheap flights to Turkey, as low as 60 eur, but during summer prices soar fast. Need to buy early. Fortunately you have 2 years :D

For the same reason i'm thinking of going but i went last year and my finances are not in the best shape. Greece should have at least one representative but on the other hand Turkey is close so...

The talk is — surprise surprise — about the European Go Congress whose attendants need not necessarily come from the a country of the political construct “European Union”.
