On Sunday, Oct. 1, we will be celebrating our 22nd Anniversary with a tournament. This is open to all Go players; there are no residence or citizenship requirements. However, you need to have an up to date American Go Association membership (more below). Registration for the tournament is on the day of the tournament from 10:00 – 10:30 sharp. We expect to finish around 5:30.
The Anniversary Tournament is a great way to play some intense Go face to face with 3 rounds and Japanese rules. Entry fee: $15 general admission, $10 youth and voting members. There will be prizes. The open section will have a $150 first prize, and there will be book and equipment prizes for the handicapped sections. You do not have play all three rounds – just be sure to tell the Tournament Director what your plans are.
American Go Association (AGA) membership is required; please check to see if your membership is current, and try to renew it online if it needs to be updated. More info on membership is at www.usgo.org. You can join the AGA or renew in person at the Go Center as well, but please come early to do that.
If your first game runs long, you do not have much time for lunch. We will be ordering pizza to share (no charge). You can also bring your own food, of course. But we do not recommend going out to lunch, because of the limited time.
