New Zealand Go Clubs:

[1] Harleqin: Does anybody have a description of this rating system?

Corrin: Acutally, there is currently no national rating system although Auckland still mantains a regional one. The points system is used to keep track of WAGC points in order to decide who will represent NZ.

[2] (Sebastian:) Do the NZ rules owe their existence to KiwiGo?

mgoetze: Do you mean the magazine? If so, the answer is no. See [ext] this link.
