So I need to decide whether to renew my BBKA membership?

I need it because of the insurance.........

Is there any other way I can get insurance without joining?

Yours Roy

Ah but does it?

Ya see it all depends on what the coverage is. And it seems to me to not actually cover a great deal.

Thanks for the heads up I will give them a call.

I joined in Oct 09 - mainly for the insurance reasons mentioned. I did a reasonable trawl round the web and found no cost comparable alternative. Having established that I joined the local association (with BBKA thrown in) so hopefully will gain in other ways as well.
