2012-02-19 - Tom Boone Wins Harrisburg Winter Tournament
The Harrisburg Area Go Club sponsored a February 19 "Winter Tournament" at the Lower Paxton Youth Center in Harrisburg. Tom Boone (11k) won, with five of seven games played. The tournament attracted nine players, ranging in strength from 15k to 1k, from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The self-paired format allowed players to play as many games as they could handle, and everyone got in at least five rated games.
2010-12-07 - New Website Address, and return to Wednesday Nights
Welcome to the new Harrisburg Area Go Club website. Now that we have a real website address, we will be taking a more active role in trying to attract new players. If you are a regular attendee, I will be giving you some fliers to be hung wherever you think would be a good place.
The Go Club has been going well. We have a good meeting location, and attendance has increased over the past few months (despite one of our more dedicated players having a conflict on meeting night). Some of the new participants are new players, and getting better.
Starting the week after Christmas we will be switching back to WEDNESDAY night meetings. This will let one of our more regular players be able to attend. So hoping to see you on Wednesdays in 2011!
