What we're about

Learn to play the game of Go (also known as igo, baduk, and wei-chi) and meet up with other players in the Southern California area through local clubs.

The goal of this meetup is to introduce anyone who is interested in the game of Go to local clubs in the Southern California region where they can learn how to play, find other players to play against, and find out about local Go related events.

Visit the American Go Association (AGA) website to learn more about Go in the US. http://www.usgo.org/
