Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


‘Red Eyes Tournament’ in Paris

redeyesPARIS - The new Parisian riichi mahjong club TNT (Tri-Nitro Tiles) is organizing its first tournament. The Red Eyes Tournament is going to take place on Saturday, December 17th and has an official certification (MERS 1) of the European Mahjong Association.

Riichi mahjong is gaining popularity at a fast pace in France. During the 2011 Open French Riichi Mahjong Championship, a surprising number of young French were welcomed. 

Subscription for the tournament has been opened; more info about that here. Deadline closes on December 9th. A maximum of 48 players can be hosted.

Too bad this tournament is on the same day as the members tournament of the Dutch Mahjong Assocaticon.

This tournament is mainly organized by RER : Red Eyes Riichi. RER is the 2nd (after TNT) parisian club, 100% dedicated to Riichi rules.
TNT & RER are 2 different clubs, the 1st one is leaded by Quentin Thomas, the 2nd one is leaded by Nicolas Poilleux.

Tri-Nitro-Tiles, Magic Mahjong Social Pung & Fleur d'Orchidée will of course help in the organisation of this tournament.

This MERS 1 tournament can host a maximum of 48 players (there is already 21 registred players).
So, if you want a seat, be quick !

Pity, on the same day the Dutch Mahjong Assocation have their annual tournament and we go to Utrecht.
Hope to get there in 2012.

Hello.
There is a mistake, the "Red Eyes Tournament" is not organized by TNT, but by "Red Eyes Riichi", a new riichi club in Paris.
