Triangle Go Group hosts AlphaGo viewing party Wednesday, May 24th
The Triangle Go Group will host an AlphaGo viewing party on Wednesday evening, May 24th, in Durham. We will not be meeting at the Social Club, but will gather at the EcoLounge at Recyclique, located at 2811 Hillsborough Rd, in Durham. We'll discuss and review the first game played as part of the Wuzhen Future of Go Summit held in China next week. Thanks to a generous gift from the AGA, we'll enjoy pizza as we try to digest the future of Go. This will be fun! We'll be at Recyclique from 7 PM until 11 PM. Recyclique is located across from a Food Lion, and parking is available either in the back yard of Recyclique or in the Food Lion parking lot. Join us as we examine the opening salvo in the battle between Ke Jie and AlphaGo. This should be a series to remember.

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.
