To promote Go practices in our community, we will host an all-member Winter Go Tournament, sponsored by American Ing Chang-Ki Go Educational Center (AIGC). Everyone is welcome to join us. Participants will register in Adult (≥ 18 years) or Youth (<18 years) group. The Youth group will be further divided into Senior and Junior sections based on age and Go skill level. To register, please fill out the registration form (please click here), drop off the form at school information desk during school hours, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration deadline is Jan 18th, 2013 (Friday). The tournament will be judged by Go Teacher Ms Jie Tang (6 Dan). Each participant will be awarded with certificate and souvenir; the winners will receive additional prizes. We are looking forward to seeing you at the tournament.
