Our big event of the semester is:

*The John Groesch Memorial tournament*

*When*: Saturday, April 11th

*Where*: The Benjamin Banneker Room at the Stamp Student Union

*Cost*: $20 for adults. $10 for youth under 12. This tournament requires AGA
membership. You can apply for AGA membership using the link below:


AGA membership costs $30 a year for adults and $10 a year for youth 22 and
under. We are an official AGA chapter, so we can offer a $15 per year
membership for the first two years if you sign up through our club. This is
only for players who have never had an AGA membership before. If you want
this discounted rate, please fill out the promotional application form
attached and bring it to a club meeting (as soon as possible so we have
time to mail your application in).

*Prizes*: There'll be a $100 grand prize for the open section (anyone is
free to enter), a $50 prize for the best performing player under 20 that is
new to tournament go, as well as a pair of custom made go bowls and some
books for the handicap divisions.

*Registration*: Preregistration is not required, but if you know you're
coming, please let us know! It would help a lot.

Please send an email to go@outfoxing.com to let us know that you're coming
(or if you've changed your mind). Do this as soon as you know you're coming
and/or as soon as you've changed your mind.

The information we need is:

- Name
- AGA number
- rank at which you plan to enter

We'll be relaying our top board on KGS. We'll need a scribe for the
tournament. If you'd like to volunteer for the position, please let us know.
Tournament information is tentative and may be subject to change. Please
visit our tournament page for up-to-date information on the event.

Even if you are not sure if you want to play, we welcome spectators. :)
Please come even just to watch.
