Re Club Insurance

Post by niallomuiri »


In relation to the recent query on the club Whatsap group...All 2018 members were emailed an ou line of the Racing 795 club insurance.
In order for a member to be covered by insurance when out with club mates either cycling, running, or swimming. The event should be classed as a training event. And therefore some record must be kept of the event ie sign on sheet, media post, or forum post.. Participants must be members of the club.

In relation to guests attending a max of 3 "Training Events" and who is going to police it. I draw your attention to the section on the insurance document attached above...

Every club member is ‘Jointly and Severally Liability’ in the event of Litigation. The litigant will sue individual and join the club in the action (Officers will be named in the proceedings on behalf of the club). Member cannot sue its own club.

So it is everyone's interest to monitor this policy, when taking part or organizing a "Training Event".

The bottom line is that a small group of people every year fail to pay their membership and yet continue to enjoy the benefits as if they were a member of the club, this goes against the spirit of being a member of the club.
