[Go Club] 2014 FIRST MEETING – THIS SATURDAY!

Hey everybody!

Hope you have had a happy start to 2014, despite unusually low temperatures and high snow fall.

Go Club is officially kicking off Spring 2014 with our first meeting this Saturday (Jan 20) at 6pm. The place will be on the University of Wisconsin: Milwaukee campus, inside the Student Union. Specifically, we meet near the elevators and enormous concrete staircase on the first floor. I should be easy enough to spot; I will be near the Dell computers with my go board and stones on an open table.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at milwaukeego@gmail.com.

See you there!

[Go Club] CANCELLED December. Meetings resume Q1 2014.

Hey everyone!

Go club is officially cancelled for all of December. The 5th, we’re going to the Evanston tournament (details in previous post); the 13th, I will be out of town; and the remaining two weekends happen during holiday break, so union hours are unknown.

As for January, I don’t know what’s going to happen yet. Assume no meetings until I post otherwise.

UWM has a “winterim” semester starting on Jan 3, but I have no idea if the union is open. The UWM website offers no clues about its calendar or holiday hours, so I’d rather not guess. More information as it comes.

Happy holidays! See you in 2014.

[Go Club] December 7, 2013 – Evanston Tournament

Dear all,

First, a reminder that we *are* meeting this Saturday (November 9) at 6pm as usual.

However, there will *NOT* be a meeting at UWM on Saturday, December 7.

On December 7, we are going to Evanston for a tournament! More information at the following link:

http://evanstongoclub.org/?page_id=130

Some details warrant emphasis -

1) The tournament is near Chicago and starts at 9:30am. It will be necessary to leave Milwaukee around 7:20am to arrive on time.

2) The tournament lasts until 6pm, so pack a breakfast and lunch or bring money for food.

[Update] Joyce informed me that you are allowed to leave earlier, after playing four games. Finishing four games by 3pm is a good estimate.

3) The suggested route on Google Maps indicates toll roads. Have cash handy if driving by yourself.

[Update] Taking Route41 instead avoids the tolls, but is a common speed trap for policemen. Since you are required to obey the speed limits, it takes half an hour longer.

4) I will organize a carpool on the day of the event. More details as they come.

Please send an email to milwaukeego@gmail.com if you plan to attend.

Hope to see you there!
