    Club Constitution (this link downloads a Word document)


    The U of MD Go Club extends back to the mid-1970s where it played a vital role in the development of the local go community. Numerous tournaments and special events have been conducted on campus since that time, thanks to the energy of dedicated student organizers, including our past president, Yuan Zhou, 7 dan. The club is an American Go Association chapter.
