No TRA Insurance

Just got word we have no TRA insurance for the first couple weeks of

2004. Glad to see they kept us up to speed on this with lots of warning.

Yeah right.

The worst part is going to see Jerry gloating.

Agreed. Regardless of our differences we do need to stick together when things like this happen. I'm sure Jerry will take the high road.

Latest news is that the insurance has come through and TRA is covered from

1/1/04 to 1/1/05.

TRA has insurance now again. You heard it from me TRA012 not refunded, first. They announced their concern only when both time was near expiration, and when resolution was nearcertain.

My recent email to others on this suhject excerpted:

I received the TRA announcement already BTW.

This is normal. Carriers often try to extort marginal customers into expensive coverages by lapsing them and giving them the "fear of god".

That's why the insurance "pool" uses [another method]

I take no pleasure when launches get threatened with cancellation.

Battle Park canceled Do to the lapse in TRA insurance, the Battle Park launch scheduled for Jan 2 - 4 has to be cancelled.

What caused the lapse?

Since insurance is issued semi-annually or annually, why is there a 2 week gap? Was someone asleep at the switch come renewal time or is the insurance company just jerking TRA around?

Inhindsight,wasthereevenalapse atall?

Wasn't 2003 coverage good till 12-31-03 23.59.59 midnight and 2004 coverage valid from 1-1-04 00.00.01 midnight?

2 week non-renewal NOTICE I believe

I think there is no there there.

The insurance company called at the last minute and tried to change what they had already agreed on. This threw everything up in the air, and the BOD had to let people know that there was a possibility we might be without insurance for a couple weeks. Fortunately they were able to work things out and there will be no lapse in coverage.

No they didn't. They had to report RESULTS as and when KNOWN. They do not like doing that whether in insurance or in motor certifications or in permit requirements.

Although there's been a report of at least one launch canceled because of the uncertainty...

In this case a launch was cancelled as a direct result of this bad policy. I hope it can be uncancelled so people can enjoy rocketry despite TRA.

Was it cancelled based on information prematurely released?

Yes.

How is a factual presentaton the low road?

Of course he would. Was there every any doubt? Jerry turns even completely unrelated threads in an excuse to bash TRA.

TRA insurance thread unrelated to a premature and wrong TRA insurance annuncement causing a launch to be cancelled? My god when will the madness ever end on my part!
