Since its establishment in 2016, We-Go Club has gathered a large number of Go enthusiasts of all ages. Together we are on a mission to create a professional Go environment for beginners and to popularize Go across the world! In January 2020, We-Go Education will be hosting The Third We-Go Open for all ages in Waterloo. The event will be divided into two major groups: the adult group, and the children’s group. We will set up qualifying competitions for the children category, where winners will be allowed to qualify for the major event competition. The adult category will be an open format, and those who score well will receive prizes and other bonuses. Whether you are an admirer of Go, play go for fun, or just want to learn more about the game, we welcome you all to journey with us on our mission to popularize Go throughout the World!
