What? The post office doesn't have specialists for that???

Finally received my copy of the 2012 Directory. It arrived in great shape and the larger font is much easier on my old eyes.

Mine came damaged on the front a back. I called the office and left a message. WBCCI office call and said they would send me a new one.

BAM! it was here in a few days safe and sound.

Hmmm - maybe next issue they can poly-bag it to protect it a little better.

Mine also arrived with a piece ripped from the cover. Typically any magazine that comes to my house has 50% or better chance in being ripped. I wish the post office would just rip up the junk mail instead.

Ours arrived in fine shape, but I would prefer an epub or pdf version. Even better would be one I could subscribe to so that it would be continually updated as members are added and deleted.

Ours arrived today - late because we renewed late. I like the format and wish they had all been published in this size/format. Oh well, assuming it continues to be published in this larger size, I'll put the small ones on one shelf and the larger ones on a separate shelf.

By the way, ours was sent in an envelope. Probably because we renewed late.

I'm continuing to hope for member-only smartphone apps and a web interface. Surely that's just around the corner.

Gee, the web site could even allow members to make suggestions to improve the club.

Int'l: Whoa! Hold your horses now parder - that's getting a little too trendy! If it's not printed, and sent via USPS we don't want it. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

Member: Doh, I forgot, this is WBCCI. What was I thinkin'? Here's my signed check, sent via snail mail. I'll get back in line sir, read my little blue book, and hope there are still openings for the rally I want to attend.

Back to the OP. I forgot to renew my membership until today. So I won't be receiving the book/directory for a while. I'll just have to wait and see what the fabulous printed information looks like.

Have we checked what percentage of the current and potential membership want a Smart Phone App for the membership list? I can not see how it could be useful. A Smart phone app for campgrounds would be useful to those that travel and have smartphones. We travel with our hard copy club directory but rarely use it. We carry a hard copy of a recent Blue Beret to look up activities in the area we might want to attend.

And that is the problem with the club. The i do t use it or need it therefore you wont either. I dont even carry a check book any more. if it cant be done online or with credit/debit cards I dont need it. i actually had to have a bank check cut last year to pay dues.... An app would be good. I laugh at all the registration coupons in the back of the BB. Real time info and capabilities is what todays society demands. Granted it is not necessary, but neither is spending the extra $ for an airstream. So the club either keeps up or goes by the wayside. Sorry just my two cents worth.

I agree with the post above. Being perhaps one of the younger members I agree that the group needs to grow with the times.

When my wife and I have stayed at the Airstream park we have to pay with a check, really we can't use an iPad with square and use a credit card.

An app or even the ability to download PDF versions of the member list and even magazines would be nice.

Blue Beret on line

The club magazine(Blue Beret) has been on line for over a year. You can review it on your smart phone or Tablet or you can download it as a PDF if you want to view it or print it differently.

Whether to make the club database available on line has been considered and the majority of the members and leaders rejected it at this time for security reasons.

International membership dues can now be paid on line via PayPal. We are currently Beta testing online payment of unit dues. Since Paypal has a flat minimum rate and many units only charge $1 to $5 for their dues, the Paypal charge for handling the transaction is a much higher percentage of the local dues. To be fair to all members, we will have to add the paypal charges as a connivance fee to those members that use it or give a discount to members who pay cash. This does make more work for the volunteer treasurers.
