Does this justify a lack of transparency?

Where or how do you account for the £30 poll tax (£10 on three parents)?

The £35 is a portion of a total fee of £65.

The £35 portion (quoted) has increased from £24 which is 45% increase (yes a +45%)

The levy has changed to £30 from £28 which is 7% increase

The total fee has gone from £52 to £65 which is +25%

Why have the qualifiers at all? If we are so confident the £35 is the correct number we only have to double the number of entries at the BYC to increase the entry revenue. Or are we in denial about the existence of the £30 levy. In any case +45% should be more than enough to cover the losses on Championships that in 2017 didn't exist? or do they exist now? Who knows?

Yes - Where is the evidence for this? I see plenty on the other side of the equation. Hidden in poll tax increases and the less hidden +45% increase.

Given we are looking at a fee of £65 (half of the £130 quoted) why isn't the profit on events $300k per year ? ....

Funny that.
