I enjoyed playing in the mind sports olympiad in August; I probably won't have time to participate in Februsry this year, but wanted to let people here know it's happening. I'm not sure whether it's too late to add more events to the calendar or not.

It'd be nice if they can still add games like gomoku, pente and renju. Maybe someone who can set up tournaments here can send them a note about the possibility of adding stone games played here?

If Pente gets added, I'll make the time to play. Anyone else interested in playing some of the games we have here in the Winter MSO, please chime in with the games you would play.
