We are just barely over 150....so depending on renewals, we must have dipped below 150 in October.

We're headed up to the Rubicon in a couple weeks and finally got around to doing this. I had a $35 and $30 option so the group must still be at 150+. Reading about the recent accident reminded me to sign up. I do some mountain biking too and have seen a few guys have to get airlifted off the trail.

I renewed this morning and was prompted to pay $35 with the FOTR group discount. Still a deal, I didn't mind paying one bit.

2hrs later I just got a $5 refund notice so I guess we are down to $30.

Guys sign up... Get your Ham licenses, build your cages strong, wear your seat belts, drive smart, and don't piss on the rattlers.

Put "FOTR" in the Group Member Number.

I put "Jerry FOTR" for the "leader" name or whatever it asks for. It took it and got the decals and stuff in like 3 days.

Ken,
how about a few more details other than "Calstar is going away"?
closing their doors?
no more FOTR discount?

I spoke with CalStar this morning and asked if they were going out of business based on a cryptic post I saw from an RTF Director on the internet.

Response was a confused "Not that I'm aware of, pretty sure we aint going away". She seemed a little perturbed that someone is hinting to that fact.

Maybe Ken can shed some more light on the intentions of his post or maybe let us in on his inside info.

For now I am maintaining my membership.

Tim.

First of all.....my "RTF Director" status has ZERO to do with CalStar. I've been promoting CalStar for FOTR simply because I had a friend get screwed on a helicopter ride over 10 YEARS AGO.....I do it as a service to my friends and family in the 4 wheeling community.

One has NOTHING to do with the other.

Reach is purchasing CalStar.....CalStar memberships are being merged into Reach. How this works? I don't know. Will it cost more? I don't know. Will it serve the same area? I don't know. Do I have a personal opinion on pricing? Yeah....I live in the real world....does pricing usually go down after a merger? LOL

I would have loved to post full details...If I had any idea. I've traded VM with the new sales guy.

If you go back to the first post...I posted it in 2006. Way before I had any involvement with RTF. You post it like it's impossible for anyone to have any interests or passions outside of RTF.

Thanks for the clarification Ken, much appreciated. As a side note you may want to edit your post. Not very becoming of an RTF director to be cursing on a forum where it is prohibited, some might misconstrue that as anger

Have a great day,
Tim.

In regard to this matter. If you would like to discuss this in person, off the internet I would be more than happy to make myself available to you. You have my contact information, feel free to contact me

Thanks again,
Tim.

This is good to know I'm going to look into it and probably buy coverage for me and my Wife, Also just as a possible alternative in case this doesn't work out my AAA Premier Membership includes up to 25k in Emergency Medical Transport coverage.

From their Website

Emergency Medical Transportation: Up to $25,000 for medically necessary transportation to the nearest appropriate facility if your sick/injured during a Covered trip. See the Premier Handbook for more information.

Not sure if Trail trips are considered a Covered Trip
(From the AAA Handbook "“Covered Travel” means a planned leisure automobile trip
in the Covered Person’s Vehicle which has taken the Covered
Person at least one hundred (100) driving miles from his or
her Primary Residence when the incident occurs; which was
intended to include at least one overnight stay within the
United States or Canada; and which does not exceed, and was
not planned to exceed, forty-five (45) consecutive days. Please
note: 1) the Covered Person must be at least 100 driving
miles from the AAA Premier Member’s Primary Residence
when the incident occurs in order to be eligible for the
benefits; and 2) for Emergency Medical Transportation
ONLY, coverage is available worldwide."

I have nothing to do with AAA just noticed this when I renewed my membership last time and wanted to share.

More details, kind of.....................
Calstar, the regional air ambulance service based at McClellan, and Santa Rosa’s Reach Air Medical Services announced Thursday that they are entering into a merger agreement that will create the largest network of air ambulance bases in California.

Finally done. Been in the works for A WHILE.

I know what the Reach Memberships are...but I don't even think CalStar knows if they keep using their membership plans or move to Reach yet...which is why I don't know yet.

A standard Reach is $65...but it's 32 states, so significantly more coverage.

I just received a call from the sales person at Reach.


What we know.

- CalStar will still exist for now.

- All memberships currently with CalStar will be honored by Reach.

- Reach membership will be $65, but they are offering $55. This is valid in 32 states. Much larger reach, no pun. But as of right now, you do NOT need to switch.


What we don't know.


What will happen in the future when your CalStar membership expires. Those details are still being worked out.

I received a membership renewal yesterday for CalStar. Will be interesting to see for how long or when Reach starts to honor CalStar.
