Teaching at Cherry Blossom 2017
The Go Center will be teaching and sharing the game of Go at the Cherry Blossom Festival, April 20-22, 2018. This is at Seattle Center, underneath the Space Needle. We will be in the “Armory Loft”, which is one floor up from the food court, from 10 am to 5 pm. We have room for more teachers!
We will be at the big anime festival, Sakura-Con this weekend. On Sunday, April 1, we hold a 13×13 tournament that is beginner friendly. Everyone is welcome, and you do not need a pass to reach us. We are at the Washington State Convention Center, near the escalator on the third floor, in Room 305. The tournament is from 10 am to noon, and we will be there until 4 pm.
We are pleased to host a weeklong visit by Nihon Ki-in Pro Chang Ruei Jie in March. Mr. Chang is originally from Taiwan, but he lives in Japan now. As a young pro, he is very much interested in Artificial Intelligence computer programs that play the game of Go. We have a number of events scheduled for Chang Ruei Jie, including:
