Come play five rounds of AGA-rated Go! This is a handicap tournament, so

For strong players (6D+ AGA), all games will be even -- may the best player

Prizes will be awarded for:

Top three 6D+ (even games)

Top three 1D-5D (handicap)

Top three 9k-1k (handicap)

Top three 10k- (handicap)

Top youth player (22 and under)

Top female player

TO REGISTER: Register at www.goclubs.org. If you entered all of your
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 questions.

REGISTRATION FEE: $15 if you've preregistered by SEPTEMBER 4, $25
otherwise, no registration fee for youth players (22 and under). ALL
players must also either be AGA members (you can join at the tournament for
$30, $10 for youths) or pay a one-tournament membership fee of $10.

All fees are paid by cash or check on the day of the tournament.

LOCATION: Albany 218 and 220 on the campus of Lewis & Clark College. This
is the same location as last year. Maps:

FOOD: There is a coffee shop (Maggie's) open on campus; Fields Dining Room
is open for lunch and dinner. Info on these establishments can be found


Note that Maggie's doesn't open until noon on the weekend, so if you need
an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring something along.

CHILDREN: We definitely want to encourage children to play and enjoy the
game. We also want adults to be able to concentrate without excessive
distraction or disruption. We therefore must insist that all children under
9 be supervised by a non-playing adult.
