I'm sure I remember something being said about a discount for BDGA members - I could be mixing this up with last years BO though, is there any discount?

Charlie may be amenable to not applying the 'not-staying-on-campus' penalty for Essex based players as it would be a bit harsh otherwise. Drop him an email.

British players should also consider offering some of their time towards staffing, as you can get subsidised accommodation amongst other goodies: full details here: http://www.bdgaopen.co.uk/staff

Sophie,
as far as I read it, there is a MINIMUM stay of 4 nights - so you can't chose to pay £115 and then stay just one night for an extra £50. You'll need to pay £315 and then stay up to 4 nights.

Or you pay £165 and get NO accommodation and stay elsewhere.

Although, there is also a list of prices for players staying LESS than 4 nights - so maybe you can pay £115 registration and then an extra £55 for a SINGLE night on campus (see options 8, 9 and 10) for a total of £170. i.e. you get a night's accommodation for £5 more than non-resident players will be paying.


Option Facilities £ ppp night
8 Bed and Breakfast 55
9 Bed, Breakfast, Dinner 70
10 Bed, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 80

As you are aware (above) teams are being selected across Europe and players minds are being sharpened by deciding which options to pay for. There is no specific deal for GB players this year (that was for 2010 Open) but as Bruce has pointed out, if you are playing and willing to dedicate 5 hours a day to staffing then I will reduce your accommodation bill by 50%. (NB:There will be no reduction of the Player Fee if you choose the non-accommodation option).

Please check out the website and the 'Staff' tab for the full details of jobs available.

I am still looking for full time staff as well either for pre-event jobs (design - need you now!) or during the event itself.

Look forward to hearing from you - and if you have a specific offer to make please get in touch.

Nominate BOF as Team GB Manager.
As long as my bonus doesn't depend on the success/failure of Team GB - something along the lines of Fred the Shred's pay deal should suffice!

Charlie,
Bit confused but think I have it right, if we live at home during Championships it will cost £165 with or without assistance given to the tournament ? If we live on campus we can reduce our accomodation costs by 50% if we give 5 hours a day to a job during tourny. Hope I have it right ! :D

Staffing and Costs

Post by Charlie Mead » Tue Feb 07, 2012 5:26 pm

Chris and all Essex locals - and any other GB players staying locally for the Championships...

If you are on campus you get a 50% reduction in accommodation costs (so becomes £25 a day B&B - minimum 4 nights) IF you staff for 5 hours a day.
If you are staying locally (not on campus) and NOT staffing it is £165 player fee
If you are staying locally and ARE staffing (5 hours a day) then I will reduce the player fee to the rate of those staying on campus which is £115.

Thanks for asking the question Chris. I had thought this one through but was not sure which locals would qualify or accept invitations until now.
