2018 U.S. Go Congress launches in Williamsburg
Sunday July 22, 2018
Heavy daylong rains may have slowed the arrival in Williamsburg, VA of some of the hundreds of go players at the 2018 U.S. Go Congress, but it didn’t dampen their spirits in the slightest, as old friends and new connected and hit the boards. New York City swept DC in the finals of the Pandanet City League — watch for full details soon — and the first round of the 9×9 tournament was held after the opening ceremonies. The U.S. Open commences at 9a sharp Sunday morning; watch live on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/usgoweb) or YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR3qjXCiYEokW7bW3HkFzfg) and there will also be live pro commentary on KGS. Plus check out lots of photos and reports on Facebook and Twitter and the free Congress mobile app not only has all the information attendees need — including latest schedule updates, pairings and more — but a cool social stream as well, where we’ll be posting additional photos and reports, handy for anyone in the world who wants to see what’s going on at this popular event. photo: a fife and drum corps welcomes go players to historic Williamsburg.
