I am just curious if you guys know of any GTGs in Minnesota or Wisconsin? I live in northern Iowa so am fairly close to both states. I've had to miss the one in Iowa that's in April because of various reasons the last 2 years (frown). I would really like to attend one.
I would think there must be something also in Wisconsin, probably just not advertised. Maybe someday I'll have one of my own. I wonder how my insurance company would view that? Is there a clause in the policy that covers guys running old chainsaws for fun? Haha
If you tell your inc.co.what you're planning,I'm sure they'd write up a policy for you,but be prepared to 2nd mortgage your house for the premiums.When they find out that you'd have guys & gals running old saws,some without chain brakes they'll really stick it to you.

I think Ed is right, it would be spendy. If you have a friend over to help you with making firewood, it would seem you would be covered. Who knows how many friends you have or how much wood you want? Of course, if one of your friends cuts his leg off you could have some tough questions to answer. If on the other hand, you had a group over for hot dogs, and one of them brought out a saw... The possibilities are endless. I am not offering advice, I am sure you know that. Personally, I have an umbrella policy over my homeowners and auto policy, just in case I make some dumb decision that results in a claim. I have had it for years, started when I was volunteering at auto races as a rescue worker.

"Event Insurance" is probably what you would want for a gtg, it is actually usually relatively low cost because its only effective for a few days. I worked with the Chamber of Commerce here for years and we bought it for all of our events. IIRC, it was usually around $100.
Then again, we weren't running chainsaws, and you may not be able to find a company to write an event policy for that, especially if you tell them all the saws are old and don't have any of the modern safety features lol.

Might have to keep that on the down low. Probably shouldn't mention that there may be beer involved also. Shhhhhh... Does this sound like a lawsuit just waiting to happen?? Haha. I'll probably just keep looking for someone else's to attend
