[Seattle Go Center] Programming class *is* Wednesday; Tournament Sunday; thanks for the pears!

Hello fellow Go enthusiasts,

Current Go Center news:

Programming Computer Go -- Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30
    Drew apologizes for the schedule glitch last Wednesday, and says
he's eager to get the Programming Computer Go class going tomorrow,
October 30.  These sessions will be weekly on Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30 PM,
loosely modeled on the book "Deep Learning and the Game of Go",
primarily structured around Python and Tensorflow, but Drew can help you
adapt the materials to the ML package of your choice.  Programming
experience is not required (but basic computer literacy is expected).

Ratings Tournament this Sunday, Nov. 3!

have play all 3 rounds (just inform the Tournament Director of your plans).

Fresh pears -- thank you!
    Thank you to the person(s) who brought Asian pears for the Go
Center!  We were able to get them from the veterinary clinic, and
they're aromatic and wonderful.

Mox Boarding House last Wednesday
    Thanks to John Boy and Leif for staffing our tables at Mox last
week, and Peter for stopping in to say "hi"!  We taught 3 or 4 people
how to play Go, and had games with another 6 or 7 who already knew the
game.  The numbers were low but the enthusiasm was high, and it looks
like the Go Center will be supporting a monthly outreach event there,
probably on a Wednesday.  Stay tuned for further details.

See you soon at the Go Center,

Mike Malveaux
Seattle Go Center Programs Manager
