The Triangle Go Group Staying Connected for Over 50 Years

Guo Juan Workshop, September 6 & 7, 2008

The second North Carolina Guo Juan Workshop was a successful event, inspiring and educating the participants. The event was held on September 6 and 7 in Hillsborough, NC, in the wake of Tropical Storm Hanna. Undaunted by heavy rains, 16 participants listened and learned as Guo Juan presented interesting lectures and provided valuable, detailed reviews of each participant's games.


Guo Juan also continued the tradition of Survivor Go, which was an often amusing but also useful review of everyone's playing skills. When the workshop was finished, Hanna was a dim memory, the sun was shining brightly, and each participant felt stronger, more knowledgeable and more deeply interested in this wonderful game.


The workshop was held at Bob's house in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Lunch, drinks and snacks were provided on site, as were boards, clocks and stones.


This was the second year that Guo Juan has graced North Carolina with her presence. Guo Juan regularly travels to the New York area for two annual workshops, on Columbus Day (early October) and Memorial Day (late May). She also holds workshops in other locations in the US and Europe.



In her workshops, Guo Juan gives lectures, reviews participants' games, and may also review professional games to illustrate principles and share beautiful moves. Her style is relaxed and quite informative, with generous infusions of humor.
