2019 Calgary Spring Go Tournament

Saturday, June 15, 2019 - Sunday, June 16, 2019

Director: Vincent van der Ploeg
Location: Calgary, Alberta
Registration Closes: Friday, June 14, 2019

EDIT: Registration will begin Saturday, June 15th at 9:00am with the first round scheduled to start at 10:00am.


A large number of players have indicated their intention to attend but have not registered through the CGA website. As space is limited registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to players travelling from out of town. Please note that pre-registering through the CGA does not guarantee you a spot in the tournament. Come by early to secure your place!




You are cordially invited to attend the 2019 Calgary Spring Go Tournament sponsored by Frank Driving School.

June 15th & 16th
Frank Driving School 
#101 - 2308 Centre St NE
Regular: $15
Youth/student: Free
(Entry fees will be collected at the door but please register early to help us plan.)
This tournament will use Chinese rules. Players unfamiliar with this rule set can learn about it here: https://senseis.xmp.net/?ChineseRules
Time controls, divisions and format will be based on registrations but the goal is to have 5-7 rounds and for everyone to play in every round. Priority will also be given to pairing local players with those from outside Calgary. If necessary a handicap will be instituted in the lowest division to ensure challenging games for all.
We aim to start late on Saturday and finish early on Sunday to facilitate players coming from out of town. An exact schedule will be announced once we have an idea who will be attending.
Snacks/drinks will be available but lunch will not be provided. Players are free to bring their own lunch or buy from nearby shops/restaurants.
Free street parking is available within walking distance.
Prizes: First and second place in the top division will receive $100 and $50 respectively. First and second in lower divisions will receive their choice of a gift certificate, book or go equipment.
Players interested in attending should register on the CGA website (https://canadiango.org/) under the 'Events' tab.
Players requiring a billet should email Vincent van der Ploeg at [email protected] and I will try to match you with local players willing to host.

Hope to see you there!
