NGC Covid-19 Closing

 | Published on 3/14/2020
Due to the ongoing national threat from the coronavirus, we are suspending face-to-face play at the Center and will be closed as we continue to monitor events. This is necessary to support the nationwide social distancing efforts to mitigate the impact of the virus. We will be monitoring the situation closely as to when to reopen.

The Cherry Blossom Tournament on 3/28 is cancelled as are regular hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights. Play at NOVA Go in Arlington on Monday nights is also suspended. The Sakura Matsuri Festival downtown has also cancelled, so we will not be participating teaching Go there this year.

We are in the process of setting up an NGC community room online for both formal and informal play. More details will be coming soon including East-v-West competition with the Seattle Go Center which is also closing down.
