Massachusettw Go Association Fall Tournament
This tournament was, earlier this year, scheduled to be held on a different date. The Chess Club where we hold the event asked us to change it to October 19th, so we did. In fact the date on the massgo website is (as of Sept. 14) the old date. But a request has gone in to the webmaster to change it asap. If anyone shows up on the original date they will find a chess tournament, not a go tournament!
