FYI: Shooting Insurance - 
We have been advised by our liaison person with the RNBRA that we will be covered in 2017 by the NFA Insurance for all RNBRA sanctioned shooting activities. Mike informs us that the rules for guests and uninsured shooters have changed: 
"With regards to guests: we have been informed by our insurers that we must supply them with addresses of guests and give them the information asap."

That means for us, at any shoot that has the RNBRA name attached to it we must collect and remit the guest money to the NFA for anyone that cannot prove NFA insurance and now we must also send in addresses. 

FURTHER RE: Shooting Insurance - 
I'd like to thank Shelley for getting this done. Coordinating the insurance is an important and time consuming job that involves primarily our Treasurer and our Membership Secretary but also everyone who is responsible for conducting RNBRA events, (that includes matches identified in our funding request as being part of an RNBRA program). Match directors, RO course providers, clinic teachers all need to be prepared to record the info required and forward to our Treasurer and Membership Secretary as required. A list of current members is available from our Membership Secretary.

All regular and life RNBRA members are insured once their membership is processed and the $15.00 + their name and address is on the way to the NFA. New memberships are processed at the end of the month as time permits - so buying a membership today does not give you insurance until  the membership is processed.

Anyone attending an RNBRA event who is not a regular or life member and who cannot prove that they have NFA insurance must pay our $5 per day guest fee. We must keep a record of these people's name and address so we can regularly submit it to the NFA along with the required money. We make just a little money on this in order to cover the extras like postage and paper. I agree, though, it is a hassle.

Last year I'm only aware of the Fullbore section submitting any guest fees but perhaps there were others?  Everyone MUST get on board with this or you are putting the RNBRA at risk and wasting the work that we do to protect it. In this matter, at this time, PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS and do your best. You can make an argument about what you think about this at meetings, but noncompliance can void the insurance protection we buy and the work we do.
