Join us for this great holiday event, with two rounds of Pair Go. Ten dollars general admission, five dollars for voting members and youth (under 18). We will be following International Pair Go Rules. Each pair must be of different gender, of any age. Registration will be from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. on the day of the tournament, Saturday, December 10; we will finish around 10 p.m. This is not an official Pair Go competition, so formal dress is encouraged, but not required. Remember, no moxibustion! (Check the rules.)
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nihon Ki-in, Mr. Hiroaki Dan, gives a greeting in Japanese at the beginning of Nick Sibicky’s Oct. 10 lecture. Mr. Dan was in the United States on personal business, and he enjoyed a one day layover in Seattle. He spent the afternoon and evening with Seattle Go Center board members, and attended the beginning of Nick Sibicky’s class, which was on Go Seigen. Nick has posted the lecture on YouTube (Lecture #223). Later, while enjoying Dungeness crab, Mr. Dan said he was impressed with the quality and amount of teaching done by volunteers at the Seattle Go Center. report/photo by Brian Allen.
The Seattle Go Center will be closed on Saturday, Oct 15, due to the bad weather predicted. We are particularly concerned that high winds will cause problems for travelers. Keep Safe!
