New Lecture Class For DDK and SDK

Starting this January 24, Drew Barnett is hosting a weekly class aimed at helping DDK and mid SDK deepen there understanding of the game. The class will be every Wednesday from 6:00pm-8:00pm and will focus primarily on game reviews, with an emphasis on fuseki analysis, tsumego problems, and fighting strategies. There will be homework assignments for those who wish to push themselves harder.

Please come by and participate, should be fun and good learning.  Drew is looking forward to improving along with folks who join in.

Pro Visit and Workshop

This January 13-14, Maeda Sensei 6p (from the Kansai Ki-in Japanese professional organization) will visit Seattle Go Center. He is very popular at the Go Congresses for many fun and entertaining lectures.  He has attended the Go Congress almost every year for the past 20+ years.  He usually stops in Seattle on his way to or from the Congress.

We are still working on details, but I think the Saturday workshop will run noon to 5 or 6 pm, and the Sunday workshop from 10am to 5pm or so.  In a couple of weeks, we will confirm the start times.  We will charge $60 to non-members and $40 to voting members (lifetime or annual).

Please email us for early registration and more information.
