Burning Board Festival 2023

(Image stolen from Paul Celmer, apparently one of the organizers, on Facebook)

This looks like a very nice event:

Burning Board Go Festival is a great chance to benefit from multiple workshops with professional teachers, reconnect with your fellow go players and immerse yourself in Go for 4 (or more) days in a beautiful natural setting at an inexpensive cost.

The event will be June 12 through June 18, 2023 , with the main tournament and workshops beginning June 15 , at Camp Crabtree in Umstead State park in Raleigh, North Carolina. There will be six long tournament games with lectures and workshops after the games. Self-paired games may be played anytime, Monday through Sunday. All tournament games will be AGA-rated, and the self-paired games may be rated if both players consent. There will also be a Saturday night bonfire and celebration. The goal is to have workshops and tournament games in a fun, festive, outdoor setting.



Burning board?



Would this be better?



When, on FB, someone asked, “Why?”, Paul replied:

Ceremonial letting go of bad moves :slight_smile:

I Iike that a LOT!


As if the equipment is to blame for those moves! :upside_down_face:

As if the burning board represents the equipment :wink:

As someone once said:

the board you play on is not the real board
