Gotham Go Group’s Steph Oppenheim Dies

AGA news - Sun, 14/06/2015 - 21:14
Gotham Go Group member Steph Oppenheim died Wednesday, reports Peter Armenia. Oppenheim (right) had been fighting cancer for over two years “He was always one of our most enthusiastic players and promoters of the game,” says Armenia. “He was always willing to teach beginners, and he spent a good deal of time helping teach go to students in local schools. He will be missed, but we are happy to have watched him beat the predictions of his doctors by over a year. And he made the most of that year.” There will be a funeral at 11:15 on Monday, June 15 at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 W 76 St, with refreshments and food afterwards.

Garlock’s Wales Walk Going for $3K

AGA news - Sun, 14/06/2015 - 21:13

Thanks to the generous contributions of many go players, E-Journal Managing Editor Chris Garlock’s upcoming Wales Walk has already surpassed its original goal and is now going for raising $3,000 to support  the American Go Foundation.  “Wow!” said AGF president Terry Benson, “Go’s path is long – and so is Chris and Lisa’s – and the more support we receive, the farther we can go.” The AGF is dedicated to promoting go in the U.S. and has enabled thousands of American children to learn go in hundreds of schools, libraries and community centers across the country. “We also provide scholarships and resources for youth who play go, and we support go in institutional settings such as prisons, and senior centers,” Benson adds. The Garlock’s walk starts at the end of June; click here to contribute to the Walk and support the AGF.
