Club members are encouraged to participate in out-of-state riichi tournaments. Speaking from experience, they are a lot of fun. In addition to competitive play, they are have an opportunity to meet people, primarily other players, from the country and beyond. Of course, participation is not mandatory; but they do enhance the overall mahjong experience. Everyone will just have to see for themselves.
In doing so, club members attending mahjong activity beyond our circles represent the club and mahjong vicinity as a whole. Thus, this is a general request: As club members, you represent the club and our metropolitan area. In this regard, mahjong ability is secondary to our behavior. Here, we play with good sporting fashion and apply respect with some fun.
Naturally, at tournaments, we will be pulling for you from home with the hope of good tournament results. Of course, mahjong is a strange game, where everyone regardless of skill either wins or loses depending on the tiles.
Safe mahjong travels.
