First Canada Monthly Online Tournament Happening in a few weeks! Project Play And other news!

Heya Everyone,

For club meeting updates, those have sadly fallen by the way side in the past few months. I just wanted to let everyone know that the club is still healthy, has a good turn out, and is still at it’s location indicated on this blog. Stay tuned for any changes in the future, be it location, time etc.

Just thought I’d let you know about the first Canada Monthly Online Tournament. It is happening on KGS. All information regarding the event can be found here:

In other news, The Forest City Go club was at Project Play this past Sunday. Thank you all for coming out to Project Play and learning Go from, myself, Matt Mennie, Mark Wong, and Rob Patterson. We are very grateful to the organizers of the event for this opportunity, and look forward to next year’s event. For more information about Project Play visit their website at: http://projectplay.ca/

 

In another note, we are partnering up with Neotokyo The Anime Store to advertise for the club. You can find more information regarding their store at: http://www.neotokyo.ca/. No news yet on providing discounts on purchases, but you never know that might happen in the future :). While I am on the advertising note, if anyone is interested in promoting The Forest City Go club in their store, schools, websites, etc. Please give us a shout at our email address and we will respond promptly to the offer. Upon our approval you’ll be welcome to advertise our club. Thanks in advance.

My Baduk Journey

One of our club members, Matt Mennie, is currently on a 1-month training trip to South Korea to study Go at a special school there (and learn how to crush us all when he gets back).  He’s been posting a daily blog of his adventures and pictures here:

Club Update- March 13th, 2012

Hi All,

Wow, it’s been a while since this got updated. Between the sheer business of work and that most of the club’s activities and discussions occur on our Facebook page, this one has been neglected a bit.

Our recent meetings have taken an interesting turn. We were down to five people a meeting for a while in January and February, and then suddenly new people have started to join in the last few weeks and old members have returned! Perhaps it’s that the weather is getting better, and people are starting to come out of hibernation and want to play Go! 🙂 Either way, the club is still very much active and going each Tuesday night from 6-9, although in truth most people don’t seem to arrive until 6:30, so if you’re thinking of coming out and find nobody there at 6, don’t be discouraged.

Next meeting is tonight at 6pm at the Northbrae Hub/YMCA. (The usual place.)

Rob
