Welcome to the Cambridge Go Society
The Cambridge Go Society exists to encourage people to play the board game go in Cambridge, both in the University and otherwise. It is affiliated to the British Go Association and it is registered with the Societies Syndicate of Cambridge University.
CUGOS has a membership of around 80 active members of all skills levels, from beginners to some of the strongest players in the country. The society meets regularly inside and outside term and is happy to welcome new players of any strength at any meeting. You do not need to be a member of the society or the University to play.
For further details about the club and its meetings, please follow one of the following links to further information.
We would also be happy to answer any questions or queries about the club via email.
The annual Trigantius tournament will be held in Cambridge on 10th March 2012. This is a tournament especially suited for novices as well as stronger players, as there will be lessons for absolute beginners followed by a novices tournament. More details can be found here
Annual General Meeting
The CUGOS AGM was held on Monday 9th May. Brook Roberts will be the new president of the society.
Meetings: Monday night (starting 26th April), Clare Buttery, from 8 pm
CUGOS meetings are taking place in the Clare Buttery again this term. To reach the buttery, enter Clare Old Court (off Trinity Lane) and turn right at the centre of the quad, entering the Hall corridor. Ignore the Halls to left and right and instead go straightahead and down the stone staircase. The staircase opens out to the buttery. There is a Clare College Map with the Hall marked.
Please see the meetings page for further details.
