If you simply want to play Go at LGC, that is perfectly acceptable, you are not required to become a member.
Unless you are aged under 18 or a full time student for your second and subsequent visits there is a session fee. For Tournaments and other purposes you can still describe your club as LGC.
Should you want to help in the longer term support and development of the game there are three membership schemes of the charity that underpins LGC.
|•||3 year enfranchisement|
|•||5 year enfranchisement|
|(1)||formal acceptance of clause 9(3) of the London Go Centre Constitution; and|
|(2)||provision of the information required by the Charitable Incorporated Organisations (General) Regulations 2012 for the register of members:
This category is for anyone who simply wants to actively support Go. Initially you would become a non-voting member of the charity and you would be enfranchised (and entitled to stand as a trustee) after a period which depends on your level of financial commitment:
|3 year||£200/yr with enfranchisement on payment of third amount|
|5 year||£100/yr with enfranchisement on payment of fifth amount|
While these fees might change over time they would not change during your enfranchisement period.
As you receive no benefits you could also consider making these payments under the gift-aid scheme.
