Freshers' Fair and First Session of the Year! - Tue Sep 30 10:43:50 2014

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great summer :)

We'll be at the freshers fair all day on Wednesday Oct 1st in Copper Rooms 2. Please come by to see us, especially if you're a fresher and want to know more about our society.

Our first session of the year will be Wednesday 8th Oct (week 2) at 5pm in R1.15 in the Ramphal building. This session will be mainly aimed at teaching new players the rules, so don't worry if you've never played before! We're happy to teach you how to play and you'll get to play against other beginners. If you already have some experience, you can still come along as there will be stronger players to play with.

You can now join the society on our SU page, though this is not required to come to our sessions.
We also have a Facebook group you can join to ask us any questions and to get weekly updates on where we are meeting.

See you at the freshers' fair!

Elections! - Wed Feb 27 23:55:07 2013

Hey everyone!
This year's exec elections will take place on Wednesday 13th March (week 10) during our usual session. Everyone can run for a position and vote, so please come along even if you haven't been very active this term. This will also be an opportunity to talk to the current and future execs, so it'll be the perfect chance to give us some feedback!

The main positions available are:

- President (organises main events and primary contact with the British Go Association, plans meetings etc...)
-Secretary (updating website, sending out emails and smaller responsibilities)
-Treasurer (in charge of money, applying for funding and spending budget)

Of course, if there are more than 3 people interested in being exec members, we can always consider creating new positions.

See you there!

Week 5 Update + Tournament - Sun Oct 28 18:53:23 2012

Hey everyone!
Just a quick update about the society. We're very happy about the turnout we've had every week so far, glad to see you all enjoying the game! Again I'd like to recommend this online tutorial for you to become more familiar with the basics if you are a beginner!
Also if you'd like to play during the week, we recommend the KGS Go Server for players of all level. It's a very friendly place to find other players of the same strength to play against.

We're organising a tournament on the 24th November, it would be great if most active society members came along! Don't worry if you're a beginner, Go tournaments are always organised so that you play games against people of your own level. Please consider it, it'll be a fun day! Get more info here.

If you have any questions about Go, the society or the tournament, feel free to email us at go@uwcs.co.uk
See you on Wednesday!
