[Seattle Go Center] Set Clock Back for Ratings Tournament this Sunday, Nov. 6

Dear Members,


Our Monthly Ratings Tournament is this Sunday, Nov. 6, starting at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.   Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend, so you can get an extra hour of sleep before the tournament.


The tournament is a great way to play some intense Go face to face. 3 rounds, Japanese rules. The tournament is free, but you need to pay for your visit to the Go Center, or be a voting member of the Go Center, or be a "new member" which gives you ten free visits.  At our last regular ratings tournament in September, we had players from 20 kyu to 1 dan playing.  Youth players are welcome if they have the patience for long games (45 minutes to a side).


Registration is from 10:00 - 10:45 sharp. You can call 206 545-1424 if you will run late.  If you call in, your clock starts 10 min into the first round, and after 30 min, if you do not show, you forfeit.  If you come before 12:30 and register, you will probably be able to play in the second round.


First round starts at 11 am.  Second round starts by 1:30, but may start sooner.  If your first game runs long, you do not have much time for lunch.  We recommend that you bring food to the Go Center, rather than planning on going out to get lunch.


AGA membership is required; please check to see if your membership is current, and try to renew it online if it needs to be updated.  More info on membership is at www.usgo.org.  You can join the AGA or renew in person at the Go Center as well, but please come early to do that. 


You do not have play all three rounds - just be sure to tell the Tournament Director (Daniel Top) what your plans are.
