Japan Fair 2024

This year’s Japan Fair, we were able to teach over 250 people the game of Go. This was only possible due to our volunteers, the staff at the Japan Fair, and the support of you, the SGC Community. So to all of you, thanks for your hard work and support.

Chihiro Sensei Visit 08-09 JUL

Chihiro Sensei will visit Mon and Tue, 08-09 JUL, before the Go Congress.  She is a 1p who teaches at the Kansai Ki-in and runs a children’s program at a school in Osaka.  If you have attended the Osaka Go Camp, you have met her before.  We will likely just do simuls, random Go questions or game reviews, and possibly a lecture.  Simuls will be $10 for voting members and $20 for non-members.  There will be 1-2 reminders as we get close due to the Mon time being atypical.
