The "Natick" group is now meeting via Zoom + OGS. Obviously, everyone's invited, and beginners are always welcome. I'm just calling it the "Natick" group since we're meeting on Tuesday evenings and I'm hosting. If you'd like to participate, just RSVP to the meeting and get the following information to me either by comment (below), Meetup message, or email: Full name (if not obvious), OGS name, and approximate AGA rank. Beginners start with a rank of 30k. Additional information on how to participate is available here: http://tiny.cc/re64nz (updated 5/16/20) On Tuesday evening, sign in to OGS and go to the Massachusetts Go Association room. Zoom details will be posted there. This group will have Go instruction for beginners, an opportunity for everyone to play Go games, game reviews and friendly chat. Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you.
We post a Zoom link every Thursday evening in the Western Mass Go Club (WMGC) room here: https://online-go.com/group/4681 (OGS). Players from anywhere are welcome. We've had players show up from as far away as Hawaii, England and Japan.
