Queensland Go Society

The Queensland Go Society was formed on Saturday the third of May, 2014 as the state federation for the ancient oriental game of go (also known as igo, weiqi, baduk, or stones) in Queensland, Australia. Its purpose is to hold an annual Queensland Go Championship, and facilitate the playing of go in its chapters (Brisbane, Gold Coast, Toowoomba and Lismore):

Brisbane Go Club Gold Coast Go Club Southern Cross University Lismore Go Club Bun Bu Ryo Do, USQ Toowoomba, Go Discipline

These meet at Ace Comics and Games Annerley / Critical Mass North, Links Hope Island, on campus at Southern Cross University Lismore, and on campus at University of Southern Queensland Toowoomba, respectively. Most social media activity occurs on the Queensland Go Society Facebook group, although there are separate pages for Brisbane, Gold Coast and Lismore. Most of the time you want to talk to your local chapter convenor, who runs a go club you can play at; but the current state general secretary is Horatio Davis (horatio@go.org.au) if you don't know which chapter or have something that affects the whole of Queensland.

Our mailing address is PO Box 149, Woody Point, Queensland 4019. Funds transfers should go to account 290 909 051 at the ANZ Bank, BSB 014281; our ABN is 83 468 116 316.

All of our meetings and tournaments and players are required to abide by THE RULES.

Tournament Calendar

The Queensland Championships (annual) and the Australian Championships (when it rotates to Queensland every few years) alternate between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The two biggest chapters have an annual club tournament each. Suggestions for a winter tournament are welcome.
