Schedule Change – Closed Wednesdays until January 2019

Beginning December 12, 2018, the Go Center is closed on Wednesdays (due to recent low turnout, expected to be exacerbated by the winter holidays).  Regularly scheduled Wednesday operations will resume January 16, 2019, with interesting new classes — announcement coming soon.

Seattle Go Center’s lending library

Seattle Go Center has library of books, magazines, and other media available for members to use.  There are materials in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.  Some of these items (the ones for which we have duplicates) can be checked out for a period of a month by any youth member or any paying member.

Frank Brown has recently completed a volunteer project to catalogue the portion of the library available for lending.  See sgc-lending-library for the catalogue.

  • * Saturday, December 8 (following 2nd Saturday Speed League).
  • * Register in person, 5:00 – 5:30 PM.
  • * $10 entry ($5 for youth 17 and younger / Go Center voting members).

This is a great holiday event, with two rounds of Pair Go, cake, prizes and lots of fun.  (We expect to finish the evening around 10 PM.)  We will be following International Pair Go Rules.  Each team must have one male partner, and one female, transgender, or non-binary partner.  Team members may be of any age.  This is not an official Pair Go competition, so formal dress is encouraged, but not required.
