The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Go Association have kicked off their Go Promotion Scheme with a Go Promotion Day at Tsing Yi Indoor Recreation Centre. Hundreds of people interested in the traditional yet stimulating board game saw an exhibition on its origins and rules and some put their brains to the test at a newcomers' tournament. Participants had the rare opportunity of seeing three Go experts from the mainland demonstrate their skills on a giant Go board. Beginners' classes will be held in various districts between this month and next February. Three more Go Promotion Days will be held in December and January. Details are available at LCSD's District Leisure Services Offices.
