After a hiatus due to COVID, MTAC is returning, and the Go Club will be there! We have been teaching convention attendees how to play Go in the Analog Game Room since 2012, and this year we will be hosting a panel too! Called Go: The Ancient Game on Saturday from 4pm – 5:30pm. We hope to see you there!
Also, we now have a QR code that can be used to join our Discord. We recommend joining the Discord for the most up-to-date information about our weekly Go Club meetings. The QR code is on the right sidebar under “Follow Us” so just scan that to join! Or you can always click the link to join too.
Our meetings are still happening weekly (after MTAC) so we hope to see you soon!
We are happy to announce that after almost 15 months, we are officially resuming our in-person meetings.
All of our regular members have received at least the first shot of the vaccine (and most are already fully vaccinated) so we will be all safe. You may wear a mask at the meeting, but if you choose not to, we ask that you have at least began the vaccination process. I have a few extra disposable masks if you forget yours.
Currently, our meeting time will be at Fulin’s on Saturdays at 2 PM. As usual, our most up-to-date information will be on our Discord, but feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you!
The AGA has advised that all clubs and tournaments be suspended until May, so we will follow that and not have any meetings until the first weekend in May, though this may be subject to change depending on conditions or other advisories from the AGA.

Update (June 7, 2020) – The AGA is still suspending all in-person activities and recommends following local laws to determine when it is safe to resume meetings. Our members still do not determine it safe to resume meetings in the near future. We will continue to update every so often if things change. Meanwhile, join our Discord at the above link if you wish to be in touch with us.
Our state championship was fought at the Midwest Open near Columbus, Ohio. A winner emerged in Joe Kimball 5k, who went 6-2 in the main tournament, just edging out Shawn Ray 4d who went 2-2 in the open division (Open wins were weighed more.) Our club also won the Pro Slayer title. There was a competition to collect coins and our team ended up with the most coins, so we were given rainbow swords. Congrats to all winners!

We will not have club on the weekend of January 18th, 2020, as we will be traveling to attend the 2020 Midwest Open near Columbus, Ohio.
