Don is having a stellar revenge, now motorhomes to proceed... There's our dues money hard at work.

And the members that wanted Forrest's amendment or the amendment for unit caravans, what progress of that? Oh never mind back to the quality members and how best to glorify and accommodate them. Why do these underlings keep detracting from the real value of WBCCI membership? It's all about our friends...

If they continue to work with this degree of efficiency there won't be a motorhome issue

I am absolutely stunned. I literally feel sickened by what has transpired at the Mid-Winter IBT meeting. There was an agreement and President Beu has dismissed the agreement by simply saying that he "misspoke." It was an incredible betrayal. He got Region 11 President Neumarkel to withdraw his motion #5, by agreeing to move the DENCO Unit motion to amend the Constitution forward, and then backs out of the agreement BUT prohibits Dan from making his motion, ruling that it would be unconstitutional.

Three Region Presidents and Treasurer Bob Moss spoke up, saying that there was an agreement. The President even admitted that there was an agreement, but persisted in ruling it unconstitutional.

What is there left to say?

And Bob hope you are moving forward with our lawsuit.

At least you weren't kicked out Forrest.

It's too bad I don't even have the solace of Leo's articles on Save Wally's Hall of Shame to recap what just happened.

I'm glad that I resigned several years ago. With this type of management, the club will be gone soon, and I saved a bunch of money.

Take a look at this: Hundreds living the Airstream dream stop in Robstown | VIDEO Corpus Christi Caller-Times

Mid-Winter meeting and motorhomes are mentioned.

I think I'll stick around, it will either be fixed, or maybe I can be the one to turn out the lights

Yes, very favorable, you want a lawsuit?

On what grounds we have more than we could have had IF a judge found in our favor.

Got the cash? I know you don't nor could you raise it.

Time to move forward, I don't plan on responding to any further posts relating to a legal action - it's very over.

I think there are members there, probably that PIP, that are NOT in Airstreams and are NOT staying in hotels.

There are. There is an SOB area.

I sent the following email to the international officers, region 12 officers and my unit president: I did not listen to the entire meetings, however I will when the links are posted on the WBCCI web site, but I have some comments on the portion of the motorhome motion which I did heard.

1) My recollection is that Thor corporate would not put an "Airstream" or "WBCCI edition" label on the Four Winds motorhomes, therefore the motion which was defeated in 2007 at Perry, GA was to allow individuals who purchased a Four Winds and perhaps Damon motorhomes full membership in WBCCI.

2) The Airstream store was at the Bozeman, MT international in 2008, after the motorhome motion was defeated. I was in Bozeman and went to the store and purchased a few small items. It is my understanding that the Airstream Store was not a Madison, WI and that they have stopped attending the Florida State rally in February. Connecting this absence to the defeat of the motorhome motion is stretching the connection without evidence. Airstream had obtained the services of Camping World at both rallies.

3) Airstream may have stopped contributing to the WBCCI international, but to connect this action to the defeat of the motorhome motion is stretching the connection without evidence.

4) 2009 was a very difficult time for the entire RV manufacturing industry and the lack of contribution and the absence from the international and Florida rallies may be a result of economics and not retaliation.

5) Mr. Huttle has stated that Thor would consider some sort of Airstream edition or labeled Class A if there is sufficient interest. How many motorhome owners have sent a letter to Mr. Huttle requesting such a motorhome and how many have backed up this desire with a $5,000 or $10,000 deposit check.

6) If there is such a large interest in retaining the motorhome members, why not a survey of members asking the following:
a) Do you own a motorhome or trailer?
b) If a trailer, are you seriously considering the purchase of a motorhome in the next 12 months, 13 to 24 months, 25 to 36 months or longer, and would you purchase Airstream labeled Thor Motor Coach product?
c) If a motorhome, are you seriously considering the purchase of a motorhome in the next 12 months, 13 to 24 months, 25 to 36 months or longer, and would you purchase an Airstream labeled Thor Motor Coach product?

This survey could be inserted in the Blue Beret and members who are interested should complete and return the survey.

7) How many motorhome owning members are there? I have heard many estimates. If there are 1000 motorhome members (and 200 own classic units) and the units have a 5 year life cycle then there would be 180 looking for a new coach each year. (The replacement cycle should not include classic motorhome owners, since I don't believe that they would be interested in a coach which does not have the classic Airstream look.) Is 180 annual sales enough for Thor to produce an Airstream labeled unit? If the life cycle is longer, there would be fewer potential sales for Thor.
