Minutes of the 2014 NZGS AGM and financial statements

2014 NZ Open, in Auckland October 11-12:

Winner was Wellington's Chahine Koleejan with an emphatic 5-0 result. His final game with Denis Liu was particularly exciting. A complex fight developed early in the game that grew and grew. Eventually, when it looked like all groups might live Chahine made a rash looking cut. Denis tried to capture the cutting stone (he had to) but Chahine had it all read out and caught Denis's stones in a shortage of liberties - killing a large group in the process.
Second equal on 4 wins were Denis Liu, Ken Xie and Roger Li. For the full results: 2014 NZ Open
2014 Auckland Open August 9-10.
