Mexico City drew 71 kids to it’s recent youth tournament, held June 4th. ”The children were from different schools and clubs, and ranged in rank from 30k to 10k,” reports organizer Siddhartha Avila, ”this was a great opportunity to round up the majority of young players in the same place, and to make new friends. After this we’re looking forward to consolidating the existing go clubs, and to eventually create more go programs for youth in México. The event wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of go teachers, players, and volunteers who offered their efforts to run the tournament. We want to thank them as well as the AGF for their donation of 20 sets of stones, which we needed to make this possible.” Winners Report: 1st: Fernando Álvarez 13k, 2nd: Vicente A. Cortez 17k, 3rd: Adam S. George 13k. Full results here. A retro style photo album from the event, by Alma Juárez is here. -Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor, photo by Alma Juárez.
