We have today received confirmation that the Insurers have offered the renewal of the NSDSC insurance policy, so we can now at last offer membership of the NSDSC for 2015/16
We are awaiting the policy document, but the brokers have informed us that the policy will run from 20th March 2015 to 19th March 2016, so a constitutional change will be proposed to change the membership and financial year to coincide with the insurance policy, which will hopefully help in future years
The policy will offer the same £5 million cover for NSDSC members residing in the UK, and British Armed Forces members (and family) serving overseas, as in the previous policy. In addition, the insurers have accepted our request that training of sleddogs using motorised ATV’s is now included in the cover, and that the wording of our ‘activities’ should include the wording ‘Canicross’ and ‘Skijor’ as we felt these activities ought to be specifically mentioned to avoid any possible future mis-interpretation.
The acitivities / business of the NSDSC should now be listed on the policy as:
Training and racing sled dogs, including canicross, skijor, use of sleds, three or four wheeled rigs, bicycles, scooters, motorised & non-motorised ATV’s.
We understand the insurers have excluded any cover for Road Traffic Accidents occurring as a result of training sleddogs on a motorised ATV. We will confirm any specifics once the policy document is received.
The premium has seen a 7% increase , which is reflected in the £5 increase in the 2015/16 membership fees:
Renewal prior to 31st May 2015 – £70
Renewal after 1st June 2015 – £80
New memberships, as above, plus £5 administration fee.
