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.
