“The AGA Go Camp is excited to announce that Yilun Yang 7P will be joining us for the summer of 2014,” reports Camp Director Nano Rivera. Yang became a professional at the age of 14 in 1973. He has trained many notable players, including Rui Naiwei (9P), Chang Hao (9P), and Hua Zueming (7P). He is an excellent and experienced teacher, who has been teaching in the United States since 1986. Mr. Yang is also the author of many popular Go books, such as the Fundamental Principles of Go, Life and Death by the Numbers, and Life and Death in Chinese Characters. Rivera and co-director Amanda Miller ”welcome all campers to join us for a week of go-playing and fun.” If you’re a go player between the ages of 8 and 18 “and would like an opportunity to study go for a week with a professional teacher, then the AGA East Go Camp is for you,” says Rivera.
Anyone who participated in the NAKC or the Redmond Cup is eligible to receive $400 off the price of the Go Camp. If you did not play in either tournament, but still need financial assistance, AGF scholarships are available here. Visit the Go Camp website for general information, pictures from past camps, and news regarding this year’s Go Camp, which is scheduled for August 3-9.
