Please join us for a gala evening of Pair Go on Saturday Dec. 12, with dessert and two rounds of play. We will be playing by International Pair Go rules, with one male and one female player on each team. The players can be any age, so a dad and daughter or mother and son can be a pair go team. This will be a dress up occasion. Fee per player: $5 for youth and voting members, $10 for others. Registration is on the evening of the tournament, from 6 – 6:45. The first round is at 7 pm, dessert is at 8:30, and the 2nd round is at 9:00 pm.
