Sunday May 8, 2011

Fifth-grader Wilson Zhang topped the Fourth Morning Star Happy Cup Youth Go Tournament with five wins on May 7 in Santa Clara, California. “A record number of over forty elementary and middle school kids gathered together on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and played five rounds of 19×19 games,” reports Yanping Zhao, who co-organized the fourth-annual event with Wenguang Wang. To ensure “a really fun experience for every kid,” Zhao reports that players earned prize tickets after each round, “and used these tickets to exchange various fancy prizes.” Each participant was also rewarded with a trophy and at the event’s conclusion, “all the kids and their parents enjoyed a refreshing ice cream party.” Click here for more photos. – photo by Wendou Zhao; Report by Wenguang Wang.
