Davis Sacramento Go Club
We meet at Steve’s Pizza, located at 314 F Street, in Davis, CA, on Thursdays from 6 p.m. until closing. We also meet in Sacramento at Market Square in Arden Fair Sacramento from 6:00-10 pm. Exit business I-80 east, and look on your left (drive carefully!) for "Market Square" located between "United Artists Theater" and "Barnes & Noble." There are ongoing experiments with meeting at different places on different dates, so check the above web site to see what might work best for you.
We play four tournaments a year, usually at the Arcade Library, 2443 Marconi Ave. Sacramento.
The club has been active since at least 1995. The majority of players are between 1 and 7 kyu, though both high-kyu and dan-level players are represented. Beginners/interested non-players are most welcome; a few are usually being taught at any time. Recent tournaments have drawn as many as 24 players, both members and non-members. While the university (UC Davis) has brought many players to the club, the club does not have any affiliation with the university, and is not a student organization.
The low overhead for Go playing space (pizza slices at Steve's and a variety of items at Market Square) has allowed dues to remain relatively low. Most of the dues go to covering the costs of space for tournaments. These costs are considerably higher in most metropolitan areas with Go clubs. One goal of this club is to promote the enjoyment of a fascinating game without unduly draining your wallet.
