REGION “A” GWRRA

 REGION ʻAʼ WANDERER TRAVELING PLAQUE

REVISED RULES 2014-2015

The Wanderer Traveling Plaque may be captured by any GWRRA Chapter in the Southeast Region ‘A’ who arrive at the Gathering place of the Chapter holding the Wanderer and must travel by motorcycle between March 15 and November 15. The capturing Chapter must “not” be composed of unassociated Members who assemble on site specifically for the sole purpose of capturing the Wanderer. Associated Members who attend and support duel Chapters may participate with verification by the Chapter Director. Each Member must be prepared to verify their GWRRA Membership with their valid Membership Card at the site of capture.

 The capture will be determined by combining the sum total of the number of Chapter Members times the number of miles ridden one way. The miles must be computed from the Chapter Monthly Business Gathering place to the capture site by using the shortest distance as determined by Map-Quest. A copy of the Map-Quest calculations must be presented at the time of capture. The Chapter with the greatest total amount of miles becomes the new “Captive” Chapter. The Offering Chapter Director has the responsibility to complete (Fill Out) the Wanderer Traveling Log that accompanies the Wanderer. Any question as to miles traveled or other issues must be resolved on-site at the time of the capture. Once the plaque has departed the point of capture, there is no recall or recourse.

 Two Chapters from the same District may combine to capture the Wanderer. All Riders must depart “together” from the same starting point used in Map-Quest and must travel “together” to the point of capture. No pickups along the route. Both combo Chapters must sign-in together at the point of capture and should notify the Offering Chapter Director of being combined Chapters. Suggestion: Small Chapter invite a large Chapter or a large Chapter invite a small Chapter to ride for the capture. The Chapter Directors involved will be responsible for managing this combo of Chapters.

 Vehicles: If there is not a motorcycle in your household, as a GWRRA Chapter Member, it is allowed to chase the Wanderer in a 4-wheeler with the Chapter you participate with. If a Member is “physically” unable to ride a motorcycle, it is allowed to chase the Wanderer with your Chapter in a 4-wheeler. The Chapter Director will be responsible for verification.

 All Region Staff (Except the Region Director), District Directors and District Staff may participate with their “home-chapter” for the mileage calculations in capturing the Wanderer. The Region Director isn’t eligible in the mileage calculation.

 A Chapter which has captured the Wanderer is not eligible to capture it back from the Chapter that immediately captures it from them. It must pass through that Chapter and be in possession of another Chapter. The captive Chapter must make the Wanderer available within 30-days of capture on a Saturday or Sunday.

 It is the responsibility of the captive Chapter Director to report the capture immediately to Ed Porter, Region ‘A’ Webmaster, Ed Porter eeporter@verizon.net and/or to Jim/Sue Jackson, Region ‘A’ Director jack297@bellsouth.net .

 The Wanderer goes into play at the Region ‘A’ Rally and will be recalled and returned to the Region 2-weeks prior to the next Region ‘A’ Rally the following year.

 During the Region ‘A’ Rally the winning Chapter will be the Chapter that traveled the most miles. They will be awarded $100.00 and the beautiful Wanderer Traveling Plaque as a memento. The Chapter with the second most miles will be awarded $50.00.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 



 



 

Below is a brief explanation of the insurance coverage and process that your Chapter dues cover. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call.

The GWRRA liability insurance policy goes into effect immediately upon the approval of a Member becoming an officer, the approval of a chapter designation and the receipt of the annual chartering fee.

The two million-dollar liability insurance policy protects GWRRA Officers when involved in authorized GWRRA business for social events and a designated third party (mall, meeting place, co-sponsoring authority, etc). This policy extends coverage for approved District and Region rallies and certain Chapter-sponsored events.

The limits of this policy are stated on the Certificate of Liability Insurance that appears on GW Info Exchange.

The policy numbers are stated on the Certificate of Insurance located at http://gwrra.org/oconnect/pdf/CertificateofInsurance.pdf

GWRRA has adequate insurance to cover officers and volunteers when representing GWRRA in authorized GWRRA business and GWRRA events internationally.

Liability coverage pays, on behalf of GWRRA, sums GWRRA is legally obligated to pay for bodily injury arising out of GWRRA's business activities. Any present Directors, Officers or Volunteers of GWRRA are covered. GWRRA's insurance policy covers the various "officers" who are involved in the various activities of the Region, District and Chapters. Other GWRRA members who volunteer their time and services at GWRRA rallies are covered by the insurance policy and are included as additional insureds. The limit of liability is $2 million. Please refer to Certificate of Insurance http://gwrra.org/oconnect/pdf/CertificateofInsurance.pdf

Also, Chapter members of GWRRA who plan, assist and take leadership roles in various chapter events (mall shows, ice cream rides etc) are covered by the liability insurance provided by GWRRA. As referenced above, there are no exclusions of coverage for volunteers. Family members or friends who volunteer at a rally are also covered under the GWRRA policy. GWRRA Home Office and the Event Management Group support / endorse guided tour rides at rallies. If a group of GWRRA members leads a tour, they are covered by GWRRA insurance. When a Region is hosting a rally and there will be vendors present, GWRRA requires vendors to carry liability coverage with a limit of $1 million. This information is taken directly from the GWRRA insurance policy and verified by K & K Insurance Group. In the event GWRRA insurance coverage does not satisfy the requirements of the GWRRA group putting on an event, the group may purchase additional coverage at their own expense.
