2012 Membership Directory

The new 2012 Member Directory arrived today. All is in order except for the new size. The club decided to dedicate the Jan issue of the Blue Beret as the "2012 Membership Edition" (8.5x11). My only gripe is where to stow the directory in my tow vehicle???? The previous editions fit in my glove box nicely. The new version not so much. I guess the seat back pockets will have to do. We'll have see how it holds up over the course of the year.

Savings

I like it and the $12,000 it is to save the club. In the seat pocket is where it will go, if it even makes it into the vehicle. I never seem to be able to remember to put it in the truck each year................

I think the format is great. You don't have to fight the binding to see the right hand page. Its off to back-of-the-seat-pocket it goes. Have you noticed the age of the folks on the back cover photo? All of a younger age group, and must be who Airstream is marketing too.

I think the larger font in the new directory is intended for us old folks, who have a problem reading the little print in the old directories. I think we also need to market to the younger folks also, if we are intending to keep the club vital. I think the new format is good, and it saves us $12,000. Why didn't we do this years ago?

Personally, I would love to see it on line for registered, authenticated members of WBCCI. When we are on the road, we are on line wherever we have a signal. Looking up a number would be handy!!

Member: Hey, it's the 21st century - how about a smartphone App? While we're at it, how about renewing online and paying with PayPal or a credit card? Oh and another thing... how about updating the web site so members can obtain up to date information about rallies and caravans. 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.

The post office mangled the front and back covers of ours. I do like the larger print.

Lucius,

Actually, I think you will see most of the things on your list soon - real soon (renewing will take a little longer). New site is on the way, manned by all WBCCI volonteers (the way it should be). And that change is fully supported by the leadership. It will save the club a ton of money.

Cherie, we have had this coach over 2 years. Sold the 45 footer after we bought this one.

We would rather they save the $12,000 somewhere else and keep the old format which fit nicely into the door pocket. Putting it in the pocket behind the seat is a poor option when you are going down the road and want to look up a number you see while under way.

Ours also had the front cover torn to pieces by the post office.

Very disappointed. We will just use last year's.
