Carolina Go Group: Inaugural Meeting
February 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Inaugural meeting of Carolina Go Group!
Where: Room 3009, Global Education Center, UNC Campus
When: Tuesday, February 16, 6 PM-8 PM
Come to the founding meeting of the Carolina Go Group, a new student organization of UNC undergraduate and graduate students interested in playing the ancient game of go (Japanese), a.k.a. weiqi (Chinese), or baduk (Korean). This is the game in which the AlphaGo bot just a week ago defeated a professional go player for the very first time, but hasn’t yet managed to defeat the world’s top go professionals!
The purpose of the Carolina Go Group is for undergraduate and graduate students at all levels of go to get together to play go, learn strategy and tactics from each other and the wider go community, and be informed about the history and tradition of go in China, Korea, Japan, and the United States.
Above all, you will enjoy playing go if you enjoy chess and other challenging mind games involving logic and rational strategy.
Go players at all levels are welcome. We especially welcome beginners at go.
Go boards and stone will be provided. (Or bring your own!) Light refreshments will be served.
If you will be attending, please contact: Andrew Zalesak, firstname.lastname@example.org.
