The local championship tournament of the Brisbane Go Club has come again! Like Thunderdome, only with go. And no Tina Turner (whether that’s an improvement or a detriment is left as an exercise for the reader).
One day. Two divisions. Many enter…. many leave, but lots of go in between, and some have bragging rights and shiny, shiny medals!
