Sunday Afternoon at Barnes and Nobles

Sunday afternoon found me facing my old friend Nathan Slider in the cafe at Barnes and Nobles to play GO.

We met about 2pm and played 5 games in about 3 hours. It was great catching up with you Nathan, thanks for coming up from Naples.

Nathan is now about my strength, 11kyu. We started with Nate taking a three stone handicap and beating me. The following games we decreased the handicap till we played an even game with only a few stones difference between us.

I will plan on being at Barnes and Nobles each Sunday afternoon to play GO! I hope to see more show up.

In the plans, a club ladder, mini tournaments, an on going tournament, attendance prizes, most improved prizes, most games played (at club meetings only) prizes, Go problems quiz prize.

Let's Play GO!

Ft. Myers Go Club start back up?

Hi campers,

I hope everyone had a great summer and good start to this school year.

Mr. Frye has got three GO classes in full swing this year at Lexington Middle School, here in Ft. Myers.

Some have expressed interest in starting the Go club meeting back up. Some of our members have gotten very strong over the last year. A couple of the club members were invited to attend a youth tournament up in the Northern lands.

Alex DeSouza and Sam Ponander traveled to Somerset, NJ to play in the United States Youth GO Championship, May 24, 25.

We have an active group that plays on KGS. Check us out in the Florida Go Community room.

I, Mr. Frye and Rob Cheney got together last weekend to play GO. We discussed starting back up the club and holding tournaments. Mr. Frye thinks we will be able to hold tournaments at Lexington Middle School.

We will email all when plans are made and Mr. Frye will be making announcements to all the students at Lexington.

I will be joining with Rob at the Cape Coral Public Library Tuesday nights to play go if anyone can come over. It will be from 5:30 to 9:00.
