Upcoming Benefit and Dues Change: Questions and Answers

The U.S. Backgammon Federation will be changing its benefit and dues structure on September 8, 2013,  the third anniversary of its online membership system. The Limited/Associate membership option will be replaced with an upgraded Basic membership that includes our online tournament circuit and online ratings system, USBGF events and lectures at select ABT tournaments, ratings and statistics on ABT tournaments, and a multi-media library of educational materials including archived videotaped, recorded, and annotated matches of experts. The Premium membership will include these benefits plus our widely-acclaimed electronic bi-monthly magazine, PrimeTime Backgammon, which will undergo an exciting redesign with the September-October issue featuring writings from the world’s best players and authors, as well as discounts on software, equipment, and books to be published by USBGF, and free first entry into twice-annual USBGF National Championships.

Dues will be $60 annually for Premium members or $150 for three years; $15 for Youth/Student members (unchanged); and $35 annually for Basic members. Premium members joining or renewing before that date can lock in current rates ($40 for one-year or $100 for three-years).
