[Seattle Go Center] Pro Visit from Bian Wenkai

Dear Members,

 

Bian Wenkai, the young pro from the Nihon Ki-in, is now in Seattle.  He was a very friendly and patient teacher at the McDonald Go Club this afternoon. Bian Sensei started playing Go in Shanghai China when he was 5 years old.  His family moved to Japan when he was 8.  Later on, he got serious about Go, and became an insei when he was high school aged.

 

Here is his schedule at the Go Center:

 

Saturday, March 25: simultaneous games at 2 pm. ($10)

Sunday, March 26: Free lecture at 2 pm.  He will review two of his games.  The first game he played many years ago, and he lost by .5 point.  It is burned into his memory.  The second is a recent game from the young professional’s tournament.

Monday, March 27:  Nick’s Class, starting at 6:30.   Free Lecture for DDK players, and players up to 5 kyu, probably on tesuji.

Tuesday, March  28: Simultaneous games at 7. ($10)

 

Cheers,

Brian

[Seattle Go Center] SDK Tonight - Fun night, everyone welcome!

Hi all! Tonight we'll have a grab-bag of sorts: I'll put up the third round of the World Go Championship stream on the projector, and during slow moments between moves, we can go over anything you like - the previous two rounds of the WGC, reviews of your own games, opening/joseki/tesuji questions, life & death problems, whatever!

I'll open the Go Center from about 6:30pm until 9:00pm tonight, half an hour earlier than usual. Feel free to drop by tonight regardless of your strength!

Peter Nelson 5d

[Seattle Go Center] Lucy Lu Wang elected to Board of Directors

Dear Members,

 

I am pleased to announce that Lucy Lu Wang was elected to the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting yesterday.   Lucy has been a great volunteer for the Go Center, as a day manger on Thursday afternoons, at outreach events, and also as a Go teacher with Sonny Cho at the Northwest Chinese School in Bellevue.  In addition, she speaks Chinese, which is very helpful for the Go Center.  She is a graduate of MIT, now working on her PhD at UW.  Please welcome Lucy!

Dengda (Dan) Tang has finished his second three year term as Director of the Go Center, and is retiring from the Board.  We appreciate his steady support of the Go Center, and we hope that we will continue to see him at our tournaments and events.

 

Lee Anne Bowie and Bill Chiles were re-elected to the Board at the Annual Meeting.  At the Board of Directors meeting following the Annual Meeting, the officers were selected.  They are:

Lee Anne Bowie – continuing as President

Bill Chiles – continuing as Vice President

Hikojiro (Hiko) Katsuhisa – continuing as Treasurer.

Lucy Lu Wang - Secretary

 

By the way, the Seattle Go Center is a nonprofit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Washington.  Our formal name is the Nihon Ki-in Go Institute of the West.  We are governed by a 9 member Board of Directors.  Three Directors are elected each year by the yearly and lifetime members.  Our building is owned by a nonprofit in Japan, the Nihon Ki-in.  We have a long term management contract and lease with them for the use of the building.

 

Cheers,

Brian
