On the Go club :
Wednesday 10 : Initiations and presentation of the game of Go for children MPT _ 2:30 p.m. – 17h30 _ Romain et Kevin
At the base, it was expected that we 2 group 10 children, one hour per group, then 1 group bringing together those who wanted during the last hour. Unfortunately, everything has not gone as well as on the provisional schedule.
The first hour was devoted to exploring the game of Go, through a powerpoint broadcast on television room on the history and culture of the world Go, and associate a practice through the atari-Go, little game to become familiar with the capture stones. The last time was to explore this discovery further with the game in its practical part and initiating children to parties “traditional” on gobans 9×9.
The first group was composed of only 5 children and one facilitator, who are much interested in the business as and when we were presenting their. They were very eager to participate in the second part.
The second hour, we have received no group of children… Fortunately, some unsuspecting visitors (external to the MPT) infiltrated our room, suddenly we took advantage of to make their initiations, which really enjoyed.
The last hour…person… A facilitator told us that all the children had gone, it remained for us to pack up.
Saturday 13 : Go to initiations _ 14h visitors – 17h30 _ Kevin, Pierre-Antoine and Alice
At the base (again concerns, ralala), we must be 5 Facilitators, but we did our best with our limited number.
The purpose of this afternoon was to introduce more people to the game of Go, in the framework of the promotion of this activity in Brest. We were not disappointed. We 3 with 8 gobans 9×9, to provide introductions to 13 people at once, and 14:15 until 17:30, there was 2 players per goban, excluding many observers, intrigued by the rules of our activity.
A Birds Eye View, about a hundred people passed by our booth, a good half have participated in initiations.
