Announcement

A number of further papers have been added to the AGM documents list, mostly relating to the motions on the agenda. They are quite short, and It would be very helpful if you could read them prior to the AGM. The documents list is just below the agenda on https://www.britgo.org/history/councilnews (you need to be logged in as a member)

Also added is a short paper asking you to consider standing for a place on the BGA Council. We have a number of Council members not standing again this year, so this year in particular we are looking for other BGA members to come forwards and assist with the running of the BGA. Any of the current Council members would be very happy to answer any questions you might have about what being in the Council is like. If you do decide to stand nominations must be received by the end of Friday 23rd April.

The usual officer’s reports will be added in the next few days.

Yesterday, 15th December 2020, we purchased the ex-Salvation Army citadel in Ravenscourt Park, to turn it into the London MindSports Centre, for £1.7M.

The purchase was made by a company set up for the specific purpose of purchasing and owning the building, MindSports Property Limited (MPL). I, Toby Manning, am a Director of this company. The T Mark Hall Foundation is investing £400,000 in MPL (£100,000 of which is done via the London Go Centre) and the remaining investment is from Bridge players associated with the Young Chelsea Bridge Club (YCBC). We are in discussions with the Chess community to see if they also wish to invest in MPL.

YCBC have premises in Goldhawk Road, where the last two London Open Go Congresses were held.
