2016 Life International Trip to Japan July 25-28
This opportunity is open to US or Canadian citizens aged 12 years or younger on July 28, 2016, and rated AGA 10 kyu (-10.99) or stronger. Points will be awarded based on participation in the following events. In the event of a tie, we will assign points for the number of AGA rated games in the database. Two children will be chosen from the US, and one from Canada. Airfare up to 100,000 yen, and all expenses will be covered for the children; parents who wish to attend must pay their own way. Airfare is intended to supplement the cost of getting to Japan but is unlikely to cover all of it. Parents may be required to supplement the excess portion if a flight cannot be found at that price. The yen changes over time, but 100,000 yen was roughly $893 dollars when this announcement was written.
