yes this is a frequently asked question...our insurance requires an original signature along with the money, thats why we cant just paypal it. Also i believe or insurance runs from Jan 15 till Jan 15 the following year. You can mail it in now just change it from 2009 to 2010!awww so thats why we cant just go there and sign up i was wondering and if you are going to sign up id wait till the end of the year otherwise your membership will expire at the end of the year
mike, there might be a day, in the near future. i think, will be able to sign documents via yer home computer. like credit card. any, done put mine in the mail.......:thumbsup:Im not an expert on paypal , but i believe they recieve a percentage of the funds transferred so to keep from raising membership fees and mostly our insurance will not accept without original signature!!
you know, i personal know how, QSAC needs signatures for members to join and have insurance. my earlier post was in general not directed to QSAC's operations. never had a problem in mailing, because its required....:thumbsup:this next statement is directed to everyone not anyone person but all...since we as members dont send our money directly to our insurance company...WE MUST HAVE A SIGNATURE to give them for proof of application!
QSAC pays the premium up front in late dec early jan, then as members pay for membership thru out the year, QSAC recoups the money and forwards the applications.
Now if we wanted to put a deadline for everyone to have thier money in by Jan 1st and then after that you are out of luck..just is not a good idea for QSAC, its members ,or its sanctioned tracks to help them grow or surrvive. Can you imagine telling someone you have to wait until next year to join to be able to race 1/4 scale. This is why it is done the way it is done. I hope this clears things up on why you are required to mail a check along with your signature for membership. Its not because QSAC is lagging in technolgy but we are footing the bill up front so anyone can join at anytime thru out the year. This is also why we have a drawing for prizes every year at the final, for those who apply and join QSAC by March.
Jim , maybe as a suggestion the insurance policy could be posted on the QSAC web site , so it could be viewed and down loaded like the rules . This would save QSAC the cost of printing and mailing to individuals if there would be a big request for them. Also seeing as how the QSAC web site is available to the public it would be another imformational tool to advertise QSAC as a whole .I will talk to Doreen and see if that is possible, but I don't see why not...
