Club affiliation and insurance

I'm in talks with a new insurer for the 2014 season, and have enquired about affiliation. They have come back with the following question:
How many clubs are affiliated and would you anticipate would be interested in insurance cover?
So, I know Croydon are, plus Sussex, Basingstoke, probably Bedworth. How about Cornwall, Isle of Wight, Shrewsbury, Reddich, Bristol

So before I go back to them with numbers, please shout here if you are interested!

I know it will depend on cost, but as ever bigger groups have bigger buying power, it could be anywhere from a few hundred quid to a completely nominal fee.

Expression of interest is not a commitment to buy...

Coventry and North Warwickshire (ie Bedworth) definitely interested - do the insurance options cover materials as well as public liability?

I'll get to the minutia of terms and conditions if there is sufficient interest to make it viable!

Interested, cost dependent obviously with the number of members we have.

Is the option to pay the BDGA per player playing if we held an event to cover just that day still available like we did for our winter doubles a few years ago?

Yes. although note I have to provide the insurer with an events list, so I do need to know about it! I usually pick stuff up on here, but with the PDGA now doing event sanctioning online for TDs rather than having to filter every thing through us, it's worth noting that if you want insurance you'll need to make sure we know about it.

We have just sorted our public liability insurance for this year but would be interested in the future depending on price of course.

Anymore details on this would be great bruce, as we (Basingstoke, Reading and Newbury) have just combined officially to form one club "Hants and Berks Disc Golf Club" and we would like to incorporate any insurance costs into our membership fee's, and also if any subs or donations to the BDGA development fund are due,
Hants and Berks Disc Golf Club
" BDGA club membership (a) #1000" :wink:

So is it possible for me to get public liability insurance for the birdie bash at redditch through the bdga? And is so does it matter if players are bdga members or not?

I would recommend this option to any DG clubs out there looking for insurance. Mark was very helpful and we now get our BDGA cover through him for £50 cheaper than last year.

By contrast the previous lot only just got back to me (nearly 5 weeks after expiry) and were quoting a whopping £925 more than last year, and that was without club affiliation which would have been £60 per club extra!

I think it's still worthwhile having an affiliated club scheme to legitimise clubs in the eyes of councils etc, I just need to have a think about what we can offer you in terms of benefits and for what cost. The answer may be 'zero for zero' and have it as a purely paper exercise. Ideas on a postcard welcome...

seconded, we have streamlined our insurance this year with Mark and are in line to save almost £400 on our renewal.
