    It's a number game

    Deciding to carry on, change the format or stop depends on the numbers. If a competition loses money it is not worth running from a very blunt accountancy point of view. Competition income comes...

    Why are you all carping on about fish puns?

    I've had a trawl through this thread and I think most of it is a load of pollocks. I'm going to leave it alone for a while and mullet it all over because we are hardly reinventing the whale here.

    If a BSC is run to the correct standard they can not return a profit. In fact the opposite is true, they rely on goodwill of people to break even.
