Returning to the Go Interruption

 I met someone I knew as I approached the site so I did not take a picture of the outside of the building. Together we entered and made our way to the second floor where we had to take off our shoes. After registering, I entered the room where we were going to play. I discovered that some of the people from my two Go clubs were already there.
As with all Japanese events, our tournament started with a series of speeches. You can see how excited everyone is. The man in the middle is the head of the town Senior Club, the sponsoring organization. If I remember correctly there were six short speeches. They were actually short in terms of clock time, but in terms of internal time they lasted for what seemed like forever.
