Held at Jumbo Chinese Restaurant, 1913 Spillway Road on the Rankin County side of the reservoir.

The study of Wei Ch'i, which was highly valued by the Japanese Samurai for it's emphasis on the development of strategy and tactics, perfectly compliments the study of Classical Fencing, Historical Swordsmanship and other martial arts.

For these reasons the Mississippi Academy of Arms co-hosts this event with the Mississippi Go Society.

Turn right at the traffic light at the intersection of Harbor Dr & Harbor Pines Dr. (This is the last traffic light before Lake Harbor Dr. becomes Spillway Rd and climbs up to the levee which runs along the reservoir.)

Summer 2007 Location

During the Summer months we will be taking advantage of the nice weather and meeting outdoors at a park beside the reservoir instead of in our usual building. We will be meeting at Lakeshore Park on the Ross Barnet Reservoir under the covered pavllion near the restrooms and tennis courts.

Take Spillway Rd. across the spillway. Take a left at the first stop light (Old Fanin Rd. / North Shore Parkway) McDonald's will be on the right at that light. You will turn left in Lake Shore Park (not the campground but the next left). You can find us via the map at this link.

When you arrive at Lakeshore Park, drive around the one-way loop and look for us at pavilion #4. If it rains we will still be there nice and dry under the pavilion.
