is a brief description to the duties performed by the BCA Gazette
- Each Gazette needs to have
certain sections; the front pages should contain the title, editor's
contact details, the names and contact details of the committee and
also of the friendly games coordinator and periodicals distributor.
There needs to be a disclaimer to the effect that views expressed in
the gazette do not necessarily reflect those of the BCA or those of
the editor. The editor has the right to edit articles for reasons of
style, space and for legal/diplomatic reasons (e.g. to avoid libel).
- The editorial should
acknowledge any contributions towards the cost of production. If any
particular contributions need to be mentioned, the fundraiser will let
the editor know.
- Typically there will also
be a forthcoming events section, reports from various officers such as
the tournament director and membership secretary and so on. It is a
good idea to organise these reports by theme: forthcoming events
should appear first, then administrative reports, then reports on
tournaments or events, then other contributions. Contributions should
have the name of the author after them.
It is a good idea to
ask people to prepare a report on a tournament before they go to a
tournament so that they can make any particular notes they feel would be
good in a report.
