Our next tournament will be on March 29, 2014. This will be a one day, four round, AGA rated tournament held at the Arcade library, 2443 Marconi Ave., in Sacramento. There is no entry fee. Registration and setup begins at 9 am, and play begins at 10 am. There is no preregistration. Come to the north side of the building to enter the community room.
This is a two-day go workshop led by Yilun Yang 7 Dan Professional, April 4-5 in Berkeley, CA. He will present an algorithmic approach to the fundamental principles of go that occur in every game you play. These concepts will be presented as a series of lectures, game-analyses, and problem solving sections. The workshop is open to go players of all strengths.

Our Thursday meetings are now taking place at Steve’s Pizza, located at 314 F Street, in Davis. We continue to meet from 6-10pm.
We have returned to the Market Square at Arden Fair location, for our Monday meetings, 6-10 pm. Use the Arden exit from Buisiness I-80; head east (towards the mall); drive past the mall and look for the Market Square sign, on your left (north); turn left into the parking lot.
On September 30, we had 16 players, nearly half of whom were new to the club.
The club plays in Davis and Sacramento. The Davis meeting location is Round Table Pizza (RTP), 2151 Cowell Boulevard on Thursdays from 6-10 p.m. In Sacramento (for 18jun and 25jun) we are meeting at Great Escape Games, 1250 How Avenue, Suite 3A) on Mondays, from 6-10pm. Our typical meeting place is at Market Square at Arden Fair, in the Food Court near the Barnes and Noble Bookstore ( 1725 Arden Way, Sacramento, CA) on Mondays from 6-10 pm. We play four tournaments a year, typically alternating locations from Sacramento to Davis and back.
The club has been active now for more than 10 years. The majority of players are between 1 and 7 kyu, though both high-kyu and dan-level players are represented. Recent tournaments have drawn as many as 24 players, both members and non-members. While the university (UC Davis) has brought many players to the club, the club does not have any affiliation with the university, and is not a student organization.
The low overhead for Go playing space has allowed dues to remain relatively low. Most of the dues go to covering the costs of space for tournaments and subsidizing simuls. These costs are considerably higher in most metropolitan areas with Go clubs. One goal of this club is to promote the enjoyment of a fascinating game without unduly flattening your wallet!
The club is an American Go Association affiliate. If you are interested in being an individual member of the AGA (dues are $30.00/year) write: American Go Association, P.O. Box 397, Old Chelsea Station, New York, NY 10113.
