DeDe, Look into ‘event insurance’. I believe that is what its called.
Alot of retailers use it as an advertising gimmick. Lets say, I run
an ad in the media that says “If you buy your engagement ring on
August 18, and it rains at least 1/2” inch on Aug 29, your purchase
is free." For this promo ,I would buy a policy that pays off on any
purchases that were made on Aug 18 that fits the spelled out
criterea. I understand that there are specific companies that write
these polocies,as they keep weather charts ,and statistics. I know
that this is not the same type of situation that you have
experienced, but it at least might get you pointed in the right
direction. Sorry for your tuff turn of events. That was certainly a
rare scenario that evolved there, and I’m sure alot of financial
damage was done many,large and small, that will never be recovered.
Our area was hit with freak flooding during the 4th of July weekend.
We received over 10" of rain in 1 evening, and hundreds of families
lost everything they owned, never to be recovered, because this being
an area not prone to flooding, practically noone carries flood
As for the promoter(s) of the 2 events that you were burned on,
thats a rather crappy way for him to do business. ALL OF THE VENDORS
should get together and let him know about their consideration for
future events of his , knowing that he has NO CONCERN FOR ANYONE!
Just a thought. Ed
