NOTE: There is only ONE WEEK LEFT to register online. PLEASE do this
if you think you are likely to attend, even if you are in one of the
free categories (Lewis & Clark Students and those 18 and under). This
important for three reasons:

1. It gets you a $10 discount on registration.
2. Lots of on-site registration slows things down.
3. I need to have an estimate of my prize budget. The more people
register, the more fabulous the prizes!

Also, please spread the word to all Go players you know!


Portland Go Tournament

October 20-21, 2012 Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR

Come play SEVEN rounds of AGA-rated Go! That's right, MORE GO THAN
YOUlLL GET IN THE US OPEN! This is a handicap tournament, so you can
expect some exciting, close games no matter your rank.

Strong players (6D+ AGA) may opt instead for the 5-round open
tournament -- all even games, may the best player win!

Top three double-digit kyu players (handicap)

Top female player (handicap)

personal information last year, it should still be there; you may wish
to update your rank. Email me (drake at lclark.edu) if you have any

otherwise, no registration fee for Lewis & Clark students and players
