Here is the latest WAGC points update, including games logged on the system by 2006-10-15:

wagc_points_2006_2.zip
recordsheets_2006_2.zip

For more information on what this is about and how it works, go here.

Victor Chow’s 2003 opening balance of 4638 had accumulated to

[[4638 * 0.8 + 700] * 0.8 + 600] * 0.8 + 2480 = 5782

by the end of 2005. This was adjusted to

[[4638 * 1.0 + 700] * 0.8 + 600] * 0.8 + 2480 = 6376

at the start of 2006, in accordance with this SAGA Council decision.

I couldn’t find the results of the following 3rd Quarter Internet Tournament games, so I provisionally assigned losses to all 4 players:

Andrew Davies vs Andre Connell
Jaco Swanepoel vs Rory Beling

Please let me know if this or anything else is incorrect.

SAGA membership fees for 2006 payable

To all SAGA members and prospective SAGA members

This is a reminder that SAGA enters a new financial year on 1 Jan 2006, and
that annual membership fees are payable in advance and fall due on that date
(see sections 9.3, 4.2 and 3.1.3 of the constitution, as amended on 10 Sep 2005).

Paying membership fees gives you the following direct benefits:
1. First-time members paying the full R 80 fee (see below) receive an introductory book (Cho Chikun’s “Go: A Complete Introduction to the Game” or something similar).
2. Members who have attained the rank of 20 kyu get a say in how SAGA is run
by voting in general meetings and/or serving on the council.
3. Members can earn a sponsored trip to the World Amateur Go Championship in
Japan by accumulating credit points.

To get a sense of other indirect benefits, see SAGA’s financial statements.

The amounts payable and SAGA’s banking details are:

Non-students: R 80
Tertiary students: R 35
Primary/secondary students: R 20

Bank: Nedbank
Account number: 1977004199
Account name: South African Go Association
Branch: The Mall, Rosebank

Payments into the bank account should be confirmed with the treasurer,
Sakkie Buys.

If you are willing to volunteer to collect membership fees on SAGA’s behalf
at your club/tournament, please also contact Sakkie. This will be greatly
appreciated.

Thank you for your support
