MIT Tournament Sun, Oct 23
The MIT Go Club is hosting an up to 100 person tournament on Oct 23 which you can sign up for on the MGA meetup:
It seems large enough that it is worth telling people about outside MGA, but unsure where to advertise it … so putting it here for now, haha.
Trying to finalize clock order this week. I’m close to the limit for what I am able to front dollar-wise right now - but if your club wants 20+ clocks, can send me ($20 x #clocks) asap, and lets me know by Friday 9/16 - I can add you to order. Shipping from Boston to you will be an additional cost (estimating ~$60 to ship 20 - 30 clocks inside US through USPS, but might be able to get better deal).
MGA has been having a discussion/battle over which clock for ~year and the thread Nate links to is a good summary. I suspect in 6 months we’ll have some strong feelings one way or another about the LEAP clock, haha.
They’ve worked for us! We started with a smaller list and added categories at it made sense. Perhaps best to see what discussions are happening for a while and decide from there.
Creating specific areas for local clubs is interesting, but worry it would mostly end up being pits on inactive despair. The MGA is on the large and more active side and it is work to keep ‘reasons for people to look at forums’ happening regularly. We’ve got stewards that actively post each week to maintain energy.
