School Teams Tournament Set for March

AGA news - Tue, 04/02/2014 - 19:58

The annual School Teams Tournament is set for March 22 and 29 this year. Run by the American Go Honor Society (AGHS), and co-sponsored by the AGA and the AGF, the event is the largest annual youth competition in North America, drawing players from dozens of schools across the continent.  All K-12 schools and organized learning institutions (such as Chinese language schools) in Canada, the US and Mexico, can register teams consisting of three players. Each school is allowed a maximum of three teams. This year, all teams that complete their matches will also receive an entry prize (regardless of their score in the event).  Teams can choose between a full set of Hikaru no Go manga (23 volumes), two classic go books from Slate and Shell (Fundamental Principles of Go, and Master Play), or a $50 gift certificate to the go vendor of their choice (due to customs fees, not all gifts may be available for Mexico and Canada).  For more details visit the AGHS website. The event is “a good opportunity to see which school club is the best in North America and a chance for young players to communicate,” says AGHS Promotion head Yunxuan Li, “our recent champions in 2012 and 2013 are High Land Park High School and Albert Einstein High School. Will we see the returning of a defending champ or the rise of a new champion?” Rules for the event are here, to register, click here. - Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.

Jan 28 – Ireland stuck mid-table

Irish Go Association - Wed, 29/01/2014 - 20:25

Climbing to the top of League C is continuing to prove difficult for Ireland. Our latest match was played on Tuesday night against Turkey. On board 1 Gavin won a typically chaotic game against a 5 dan opponent. Sadly though, the rest of the boards performed less admirably, and Ireland tumbled to a 3-1 loss. This leaves us in 8th place in the league now, but we have a chance to improve our position against the somewhat weaker opposition in the second half of the season.
