Kedziora Jerry 2014Coming off a Good Record

As spring approaches we all look forward to sunshine, balmy breezes and the fragrance of Lake Michigan. Meanwhile the Insurance Committee has started the process of reviewing our insurance needs for the next annual insurance period. Our policy runs from May 1 of this year to May 1, 2016.

For the insurance year now coming to an end, we have not had any reportable accidents or claims from members, guests or employees. Consequently we anticipate very modest premiums for the 13 different insurance coverages we require. Congratulations to General Manager Pat Nora and his staff on a safe year. And, in saying that, I hope I don't turn out to be a jinx.

Bids are due next month, and I'll be convening the committee to review them. We don't want to necessarily choose the lowest-cost bidder, but rather the bidder whom we believe provides the best overall insurance coverage value.

Part of this annual ritual is filling out applications which have to be completed every year. One area that challenges us is the valuation and replacement cost of our club’s fine arts. This includes our trophies, especially the Queens Cup, our artifacts and prints, photos and paintings.

This year I asked longtime life member Carl Pluckhan during the annual cleaning this past January to document, catalog and photograph all of these items in the club. A big thank you to Carl for a great job on this assignment. I have to think that Carl prefers taking photos of our trophies rather than polishing them as he and his team has done in the past. But that’s another story for next year.

I’m also in the process of seeking suggestions from club historian John Ebersol for preserving our treasures for the enjoyment of current members and future generations.

If any members would like to join the Insurance Committee, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and our club.
