The latest version of the handbook is now available.

A new section on Running Go Demonstations was added September 2013.

Please let us 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. The handbook is constantly updated to reflect current practice. Comments, contributions and suggestions should be sent to Nick Wedd, handbook at britgo.org.
