Guest and Short-term Participant Guidlines

As of June 1, 2014 the Insurers modified their eligibility criteria to insure “guests” (short term participants) under the program. This was done to overcome insurance concerns and to allow more people to experience the sport. In the past, there had never been a provision in Archery Canada (AC) or the BC Archery Association for a visitor or guest.

The attached policy, “Guests and short-term participants”, sets out guidelines and operating procedures for the application of this new program.

The BCAA covered the participant fees for 2014 (up to October 31st 2014). Fees for 2015 will  be passed on to the clubs, to include the participants reported from November 1, 2014 through October 31, 2015.  It has been rumored that the BCAA would be up-charging the fee charged by the Insurer/Archery Canada. This is FALSE. BCAA has not, nor did it ever, consider doing so.  The BCAA was suggesting the Clubs charge $2.00 per guest per visit to cover Insurer fee and club administration costs—see details of this in the Guest policy itself. 

We ask the clubs to send us the number of guest-participants they have had during the period of November 1, 2014 through October 31, 2015, along with a copy of their registers (as per the above-referenced Policy).  After receiving the invoice from Archery Canada with regard to the current years' fees, we will forward an invoice to each of the member clubs for their portion of the fees. This will happen early in the new year. This information should assist the clubs in determining the appropriate fee to charge to cover the insurer’s cost and administration of the register.
