[Seattle Go Center] Thanks to our volunteers!

Dear Members,


I’m pleased to report that we have had enough volunteers for all our recent outreach and Go class events.  The big events were the Sakura Con Anime and Manga event, April 14-16, and then the Cherry Blossom Festival of Japanese Culture,  April 21-23.  Two volunteers, John Richards and David Snow, put in a total of more than 70 hours  at the two events.  Many other Go Center members contributed as well, with at least 15 volunteers giving instruction and playing teaching games at Sakura Con.  Dennis Wheeler kept the Go Center open on Saturday April 15, and then spent the rest of the weekend at Sakura Con, while Dan Top ran the 13x13 Tournament. On the Tuesday following the Cherry Blossom Festival, 6 new players came to the Seattle Go Center, showing that we had made some new friends.


But we have more projects.  Lee Anne, Leslie and Ben Z are teaching a class (in English) at the Korean school that meets at Tyee Middle School in Bellevue on Friday evenings.  Peter K. helped out with that yesterday. And Sonny Cho and David Snow are teaching a class at the Northwest Chinese School on Saturdays.  We also taught a class of students from Ocosta High School in Westport WA, who were visiting Seattle for the day.  We have a visit from students at the Bush School planned for Monday.  And Lee Anne and Lucy will be at the Multicultural Fair at Brier Terrace Middle School in Edmonds this afternoon.  Thanks to all!
