The Seattle Go Center will be expanding its sequence of free evening classes. We will be adding a “Single Digit Kyu Player’s Class” on Wednesday night, June 12, with Andrew Jackson 5d as the instructor. Here is the revised sequence of our classes, in order of rising difficulty:
Thursdays, starting June 13: “Real Beginners” 7 week intro class starts at 6:30 p.m. with Jon Friedman. Here is the flyer. “Beginners Workshop” ongoing class starts at 7:00 pm with Frank Lam. The Workshop is good for graduates of “Real Beginners” up to about 15 kyu. Here is their website.[ Read more... ]
The Seattle Go Center will be closed for Memorial Day Weekend, May 25 – 27. An Ikebana group will be meeting there for a workshop.
Nick’s Monday night DDK class on May 27 is also taking a holiday.[ Read more... ]
The Iwamoto Youth 19×19 Tournament will be held Sunday, May 19, at the Seattle Go Center, at 1:00 p.m. If the open section has a least 4 players, the first place prize will be $50. There will also be an handicapped section with book and equipment prizes. This is a great way for youth to start playing rated games. The tournament is free, but players must be under 18, and have an American Go Association membership, which costs $10. AGA memberships can be set up online or in person on the day of the tournament. Advanced registration is not required, but please send an email with your playing strength if you know you are coming.[ Read more... ]
