The ECF's costings though are based on raising 85%*9*18 from this group of players, so they become about Â£ 120 in the red.
You give up Game Fee, about Â£ 60,000 a year, you reduce Direct (ie full price) Members down to Â£ 18. Where are they projecting to make up the shortfall? From MO members by increasing their price to Â£ 18 and from non-members by increasing their previous Game Fee based amounts up to Â£ 18.
