Earlier this week, Keith Arnold jokingly asked me if the E-Journal Congress Team was as big as the 32-player Ing field yet. Actually, it’s larger, as it turns out (see below for the complete list; not all are pictured). Forty terrific volunteers contributed to 56 hours of broadcasts, 55 game records, 11 game commentaries and 38 reports published in the E-Journal and on the website. I’m honored to have had the opportunity to work with such a great group of people, from the main broadcasting team — the Todds, Steve, Akane, Matt, Sol, Chris B and Richard — to the game recorders, professionals, reporters and photographers, all of whom played a key role in bringing this year’s Go Congress to the world and I thank them on behalf of go players everywhere. Thanks also to Karen Jordan and the Congress team for bringing us all together for such a great event, especially the tournament directors – especially Chris Kirschner, Ken Koester and Sam Zimmerman — who worked so closely with us this week and to the AGA Board of Directors and President Allan Abramson for all their support of the E-Journal’s work. Finally – but always first in my heart – thanks to my wife, Lisa, who has so generously shared me with the go community for the last 25 years. See you next year in Santa Barbara!
