  • Minutes
    1. Minute for April with be ready for posting shortly
  • Insurance for the Upcoming race and the First Aid requirements. Angela is off enjoying a well deserved holiday and is there anyone else that could find out about the insurers expectations?
    1. We have a race coming up this weekend, they don’t have official first aid, however they do have 2 paramedics (what level is this) attendances in attendance, but no insurance coverage. Does our race insurance cover paramedics
    2. Just waiting for clarification on proper insurance coverage. Is the club covered?
    3. It very important there is proper insurance coverage and first aid during the race.
    4. Jane will contact James and let him know where we stand.
  • Insurance part 2; getting health coverage for the American races has suddenly jumped up in price. Is this the concern of the Pn and if so what are our thoughts and direction that we need to go
    1. Health insurance for States is very expensive, if you plan to race
    2. $180-$375 / $90-$900 bcca / CIBC 12month $384 and sur charge $300
    3. AMA rep can’t buy insurance in American as a Canadian
    4. If we were members of AMA still very expensive
    5. Cheap that was found was Approx $200+
    6. Still working on details for Canadian racers who need insurance to race in Washington, what is covered and what is not

Motion: Jane

  • Suspend the American races as pointed races until we know what type, cost, coverage. This is an educational position. Racers can still go and race, but no points. For the first race coming up.
