August 31 Sacramento Davis/Sacramento Go Club Quarterly Tournament
This will be a one-day, four-round, AGA-rated tournament held at the Carmichael library,
5605 Marconi Ave., Sacramento (on Marconi, between Garfield and Fair Oaks).
Registration opens at 9:00 am and play begins at 10:00 am. There is no pre-registration—just show up, sign in, and play!
There will be no go club (hence, no fireworks at the go club) on Thursday, July 4, 2019. We will resume regular meetings Monday, July 8.
The club plays in Davis and Sacramento. The Davis meeting location is: Steve’s Pizza, 314 F Street, on Thursdays from 6-9pm. The Sacramento meeting location is: Market Square at Arden Fair in the Food Court near the Barnes and Noble Bookstore ( 1725 Arden Way, Sacramento, CA), on Mondays from 6-9pm.We play four tournaments a year, typically alternating locations from Sacramento to Davis and back.
The club has been active since 1985. The majority of players are between 1 dan and 9 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.
