We had a great time playing go at The Creamery in SoMa, so I'm hoping to keep the excitement up! Next meetup will be Saturday August 4, somewhere in Japantown. I had a recommendation for a spatious tea cafe, though I don't know exactly which one (I hope members will suggest the exact location!)
Also, as per request of the group, I'll be trying to have some sort of "sequence of lessons" lined up with these things to help get beginners on their feet in the world of go. This week we'll be focusing on the study of basic "life and death" shapes. These shapes will form the foundation for any go player's tactical capabilities, and are revered by professionals as one of the fastest ways to increase one's skill and appreciation of the game.
Hope to see you there!
