It is pointless and futile to even discuss forming another club, it will never happen. If you aren't satisfied with the WBCCI then simply don'trenew and just go to independant Airstream Forums rallies or whatever.

It's no diferent from whenever people get mad at a preacher and try to split a church, taking as many families with them. Most quit attending anywhere at all. Even those who do start up a new church, it isn't long before another disagreement stirs them up and another split occours. Usually the one who starts up an origination acts as though they own it all.

If there are some changes you'd like to see take place in the WBCCI, then quit bitching and moaning, get involved within the structure of it all where you can eventually make a difference. Sure it takes a while to move up the ranks within the local region and so on but you do move up the ladder of leadership.

Why worry about a name right off anyways? I would think there are more important issues to be worked out first. But if you insist on coming up with a name here's an idea, take letters out of this phrase and make up an acronym,
Those who like to bitch and moan-- TWOLTBAM Well, you get the idea.

This has been a great thread. It has taught me a great deal about human nature. It has taught me how very foolish I am. Thank you all for your input. I think it was the following "thanks" I received that made me realize that my actions here are very foolish:
You're worried about so many people, yet who is worried about you and your experience? Reflection...
I will take some one else's advise to me and just shut up now.

Frank,

Not to jump off the “name thread” but I would like to comment back on you last post when you say “You're worried about so many people, yet who is worried about you and your experience? “

There were many folks that “did” worry about your experience, thus is the reason why your “elders” told you “not” to go. We had been there, done that, got the shirt and came home, hoping to teach our children by our mistakes, ones that maybe someday we will even make again when the time is right.

In the words of one of your elders, “WBCCI International is hardcore Airstreaming and politics rolled into one and is not for the faint of heart”. Many of us knew it would destroy your purity, but some things must be experienced by someone and not taught to them.

I will leave you with these words,

“Perceive the way of nature and no force of man can harm you. Do not meet a wave head on: avoid it. You do not have to stop force: it is easier to redirect it. Learn more ways to preserve rather than destroy. Avoid rather than check. Check rather than hurt. Hurt rather than maim. Maim rather than kill. For all life is precious nor can any be replaced." - Master Kan

The main reason why I never go to rallies beyond the local/regional level is because I only attend what the "fun factor" appeals to me. I hear the stories of the "impressive" flag ceromonies at International, but from being prior military who has participated in a mighty fair share in military formations, troop pass and reviews, parades, retreats and all sorts of ceromonies (most of them standing at parade rest while in the hot sun) I can guarantee I do not get a woody out of that sort of stuff. BTW- the retreats I'm referring to are not corparate retreats, you military guys know what I'm talking about.

My idea of a good rally is siting around with fellow friends eating good food, doing fun activities, like eating, and sitting around a campfire talking to one another, while eating smores. Sorta like what real camping is, except we sleep more comfortable than on the gournd in a tent!

Leo,
The Hash was a hit! All I did was add eggs cooked to order and this held me through a round of golf and never was hungry even at dinner.

thanks!
Ed

PS I was going to take photos but pictures of food just don't turn me on.....................

Heard a little ditty on the Ipod today. Made me reflect on this thread. The lyrics felt extremely poignant after getting my dues renewal notice....

Wait for next years Wally Byam Birthday Bash at my place next summer!! i'm working on the dates now... it'll be one not to miss!

So, Frank--

Does this mean that you're hitting the road? Gonna peel the red numbers off your trailer and pitch the classic wool blue beret in the trash?

Just curious--your post seems somewhat ambivalent.

Cheers,
Nuvi
