Obsolete: BGA Organisers' Handbook

See replacement page

The old handbook is available in the following forms:

  • HTML, for browsing online

Major changes in this new version:

  • Rewrote introduction to reflect current BGA activities (largely taken from the website).
  • Revised publicity chapter to consider internet publicity, and to include more details on holding open evenings.
  • New section on teaching the rules changed.
  • More teaching exercises in Chapter 6.
  • Chapters 7 and 8, Planning and Running a Tournament, completely updated and expanded to reflect current practice and recent experience.
  • New chapter (10) on good practice for producing the draw with a computer (by Geoff Kaniuk).
  • Generally pulling bits of useful information from various bits of the BGA web site and adding it to appropriate places.

Please let me know of any inaccuracies, inconsistencies, or anything missing in this handbook. Further contributions are always welcome, particularly regarding successful ideas for recruitment, or new teaching events for clubs. As this is a web site and not a printed document, there is no reason why it should not be constantly updated to reflect current practice.
