The US Go Congress is the largest go activity in the United States. It happens once a year and spans one week. Events include the US Open, the largest annual go tournament in the US, professional lectures and game analysis, continuous self-paired games, and all kinds of go-related activities from morning to midnight. Come for the go. Come for the camaraderie of old friends. Whatever your reason, we are looking forward to seeing you there.
