Best Times for Beginners

Beginner Class with Frank Lam

Beginner Lesson with Frank

We are ready to teach complete beginners informally on Tuesdays from 3 – 9 PM, and on Saturdays from 1 – 5 PM.   This Thursday evening, April 7, we will have a one night introduction to Go by Frank Lam, from 7 – 9:30 pm.

Beginners on Tuesdays and Saturdays don’t need an appointment, and we arrange individual or small group lessons with volunteers who are ready to teach when you walk in.  This spring, we have about 25 – 40  players coming sometime on Tuesdays, including about 4 children.  Saturdays are smaller, about 20 players, but we have volunteers available to teach then as well.  The day manager, usually Dennis Wheeler 7K,  is also available to teach beginners from 1-5 PM.

If you prefer to learn in a class setting, we recommend the Thursday evening class for those who are starting out.  Complete beginners can start at any time. This is also a good night for more advanced beginners, so if Thursdays are good for you, come on by.
