Dear Go Teachers,
We will be teaching and sharing the game of Go at the Cherry Blossom Festival at Seattle Center on Friday, April 21, Saturday, and Sunday. We are in our regular place in the Loft of the Armory (one floor up from the food court). For you old-timers, the Armory has also been called The Center House, The Food Circus, and The Armory (before the World’s Fair). The Cherry Blossom Festival extends to several other buildings as well. If you are new to Seattle, please note that we are down at the Seattle Center (under the Space Needle), not at our building, which is the Seattle Go Center. The Go Center will be open regular hours on Saturday, as well.
The Festival is free, with many events and performances, but parking is expensive. So if you can walk, bike or bus, you will save some money. We will reimburse car pools with three volunteers, and drivers who are bringing handicapped people.
We have a core of volunteers scheduled already, but I expect we can use more teachers midday on Saturday and Sunday. This will also allow teachers to take some time off, and check out the rest of the festival.
We will be open 10 – 6 on Friday, 10 – 6 on Saturday, and 10 – 5 on Sunday. Here is the festival schedule:
We hope to see you there!
