Santa Fe Summer Tournament

On Saturday May 27, we are holding our Summer Go tournament. This will be similar to our last tournament in that the first round will be paired but subsequent games will be self-paired. This worked out to be quite exciting. It is an AGA rated tournament so that players can update an existing AGA rating or if unrated get their first AGA rating! As a handicap tournament, all playing strengths are welcome. Beginners will play at the right level. Prizes will be awarded to deserving players!

Check-in will start at 9:00 am at the home of Nancy Dahl, 86 Leaping Powder Road, Santa Fe, with the first round scheduled to start at 10:00 am. Sandwiches and beverages will be provided for lunch for entrants at no charge. While there are no tournament fees, an AGA Number will be required*. Register online now at GoClubsOnline. Players can either pay any fees via credit card during registration or on the day with cash or checks. Directions are also available in the online details of the tournament.
