[Seattle Go Center] More about the Raffle!

Hi All,


I put on white cotton gloves, and unboxed this fine goban (floor board) that was donated to us a while back.  It will be the big prize in our raffle at the Anniversary Party Oct. 12 at the Seattle Go Center.





This kaya board has been in storage for decades, and it has never been used. The board is 15 cm thick and stands on four legs.  It has good color and nice "chasing masa" grain.  Kenji Miyake, one of the founders of the Go Center,  helped the owner select it.  The second prize (value estimated at $200) is a set of slate and shell stones in wooden bowls.  The stones have been used, and some are chipped.  There are 180 white and 172 black stones, approximately #31 thickness.  (The same thickness as the standard glass stones we sell.)  The third prize is a new travel-size magnetic Go set ($25 value).



Raffle tickets can be purchased when the Go Center office is open -- Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and at the tournament Sunday. Raffle tickets are $20 each, and a maximum of 250 tickets will be sold.  The raffle will be cancelled, and ticket payments refunded, if we sell fewer than 50 tickets.


Winning tickets will be drawn at random after dinner at the Anniversary Party on October 12, 2019.  The winner need not be present to win.  Please write your name clearly on the raffle tickets!
