Go Congress almost sold out

Sunday April 24, 2022

“Registration is approaching 300 people for the US Go Congress in Estes Park this summer,” reports Co-Director Eric Wainwright. “Just 12 rooms are left at the YMCA. It’s a clear sign that people are ready to put the pandemic in the rearview mirror and get back to playing Go in-person.  If anyone was on the fence about participating, now is the time to register.”

Congress organizers have asked for more rooms from the YMCA, but don’t know yet whether they’ll get any. Off-site lodging is also available, but Estes Park books up early in the prime summer season. Anyone who wants to stay offsite should make a reservation as soon as possible. “This will be a slightly smaller congress than usual,” added Co-Director Howard Landman, “but with 287 people registered so far, we’re definitely not cancelling for lack of attendance!” The Early Bird rates for the congress end on April 30th. After that, a $100 fee will be charged as it becomes more difficult for the congress to hold rooms (offsite lodging is exempt from this fee).
