Jim, there's one more small but very important part of this section of the Constitution "...provided such members do not own another brand of recreational vehicle except such Regular Members may own another brand of recreational vehicle that is parked in a permanent or semi-permanent location to be used by the members as a vacation facility or as a home. (6/29/96)
Emphasis mine (actually it is Art VI Qualification of Members).

It's Important...

to get the word out about this, for this year's Delegate's mtg., either way. If the word is out the delegates will be ready for it if it comes up. If not, the awareness factor will surely jolt all into dis-belief that this subject has come up again.

We have to stay AHEAD of this ball! These silly ideas are seriously effecting the membership. People are dropping out. Many have sent word that they will not be renewing in the WBCCI because the're not focused on the members, saying "there's nothing in it for me" -- just silly ideas. Oh, these same folks are staying in the VAC as associate members!

No means NO! No matter how you put it or how it sounds. Bringing this up again shows desparation. It shows how incredibly narrow-minded and panic-driven these members are.

Perhaps we should all buy life memberships and rock the vote.

Let's all keep strong and keep moving forward. Let's figure out what we can all do to make the WBCCI exciting and forward thinking? Spread the word about how silly this idea is and get back to focusing on AIRSTREAMs!

It is not possible to remain a member of the VAC if you drop membership in the WBCCI. The VAC is an intra club and membership in the parent club is required. Associate membership is reserved for WBCCI members who have Airstreams newer then 25 years.

That is correct Richard, I stand corrected... SUBSCRIBER is the term I should have used. OOps!

Sometimes I think too fast for my typing! That's why I have a couple (several) proof readers to watch over me!

Tim has to work that week so we decided to go to the International in Bozeman.

Thanks for the kudos on the newsletter. It is great fun. New issue in the mail this next week and working on a special International issue to come out shortly after.

Will you be at Bozeman? And, when will you be sending in your FCu rally stories and pics for the VA? Upcoming rally announcements? etc.? ...no pressure!

Let's all focus on keeping members, bringing in new members and blow this recurring MOHO issue out of the pool . Spread the word on how silly and defeating it really is.

Live from Region 3 Rally

The proposed amendment was just defeated. It will not be sent on to the IBT.

Any Unit can bring it back up, but it is dead for now.

There wasn't a roll call vote, only a show of hands. Of the 22 Units in Region 3, only four of five hands went up in favor of the amendment. All the rest voted no, and I didn't see any abstentions. I voted no for my Unit.

Randy,
Thanks again, I was the only no vote in our unit I think our unit was 8-1 with the other members not responding.

The Region 3 Board consisting of the Region 3 leadership and all the Unit presidents from the region were asked to vote on sending the proposed change forward to the IBT to bring it before the International Delegates Meeting. All Region 3 Units had meetings before this Rally to decide this question (send forward or no). I don't know if the Unit Presidents were voting a majority or super majority decision at the unit level. I know in my unit we were unanimously against it.

There was some discussion as to wether or not the motion was proper and documented correctly by the proposing unit. There was assurances from the Region 3 President that it was. The International President stated that if it was forwarded to the IBT, it wouldn't be heard at Bozeman this year as it was too late. I got the feeling he was glad for that.

Before the Board voted, the Region 3 President asked for a show of hands from those in attendance as to their feeling on the proposal. That was about 1/3 for and 2/3 against.

The motion was to send the proposed change to the IBT. As I said before, the Board then voted NO to sending it forward. A simple majority was all that was needed to approve the motion to send the proposed change forward, but it failed.

I hope that answers your questions.

Randy

That's really good news. Maybe the meeting in Bozeman can focus on moving the club forward instead of looking back to last year!

Thanks for the update.

Talking I still don't understand ...

why Airstream can't let Four Winds or some Thor enity build them an "Airstream" MOHO. I know what they said about warranties and service, etc (not like there was never a problem with whether Airstream or Frieghtliner was responsible for problems on A*S class As, but they are selling Interstates and previously sold B-vans which were not built in Jackson Center. I am not sure the B-vans weren't finished at Airstream, but you get my drift. If they have to drive them through Jackson Center to stick the Airstream logo on them then they'd have an Airstream MOHO. Oh well, I'm not in a position of making those decisions Thank God!

Anyway, great news about the Reg 3 vote.

Tom
