Second round starts by 1:30 PM, but may start sooner. If you come before 12:30, you probably can play in the 2nd round. You do not have play all three rounds - just be sure to tell the Tournament Director your plans. If your first game runs long, you do not have much time for lunch. We recommend that you bring food to the Go Center, rather than going out to get lunch. The tournament is free, but you need to pay for your visit to the Go Center, or be a voting member of the Go Center, or be under the age of 18, or be a "new member" which gives you ten free visits. Also, current AGA membership is required. You can join or renew online at www.usgo.org/join-aga-today (You can join the AGA or renew in person at the Go Center as well, but please come early to do that).
