Steve started playing Go in 1995 after finding the Stellenbosch Go Club in the Neelsie. He served on the committee of the club from 1996 to around late 2000, when the club went into a 2-year lull. He revived it along with David Richfield, and has been president of the club since its reconstitutionalization in 2004. He also started the Stellenbosch Go Club website, which later evolved into the South African Go Clubs website, for which he is the webmaster.
Andre Connell believes "reconstitutionalization" is a very long word.
