New Go Club

You have the project to start a Go club ?
The Federation can support your project.

Material

The Federation can provide you with a "starter kit". This material (goban) is second hand but sold at very low price:

This "starter kit" consists in:
- 1 or 2 sets of glass stones for 10 € each
- 1 or 2 gobans 19x19 for 5 € each
- 1 goban 13x13/9x9 free
- 2 goban 9X9/7x7 and/or 9X9/6x6 free if between 2 and 5 BGF members (4 goban if more than 5 BGF members)

Therefore, the starter kit costs (max) 30 EUR.

Remark:
- Actually, this cost should be covered by your "club membership fee" (f.i. 5 €) within a couple of years
- to officially start a club and ask for the starter kit, at least 2 people need to pay BGF member fees (as member of this new club)
- you are not obliged to purchase everything in the list above, but you have to buy for minimum 10 €
- In the case your club ceases its activities, the Federation guarantees you to buy the material back at the price you have bought it (deducing damage, if any).

PS: in case you wish better quality or more material: we sell it at (cost) price, the very reduced prices only apply for the starter kit. More info here: https://www.gofed.be/en/federation/sale

We also give some promotional / pedagogic material (visit cards...) for free.
