What a great idea to drive away new members ... another tax ... NO! If the great minds need more money, ask directly... don't slide in the back door.

This progressive tax would work much like the USA income tax system currently works. So those who “have” the most should have to “pay” the most tax.

Kind of like this,

1950’s trailers must pay $0.50
1960’s trailers must pay $1.00
1970’s trailer/MOHO pay $1.50
1980’s trailer/MOHO pay $2.50
1990’s trailer/MOHO pay $5.00
2000’s and newer trailer/MOHO $10.00

This way the rich with their new trailers/MOHO pay the most because they can afford to “give a little more” for the greater good of the club and to help level the playing field for everyone to be able to enjoy this wonderful club as much as the next person.


Enjoy,
Of course we should all realize big brother knows how to spend our money much better than us mere riff raff. Sal

To equitably share the cost of putting on any rally, all the costs of organizing, promoting, and putting on that rally shall be be paid for from fees to that rally (including officer travel expenses). All Region officers' travel expenses will be paid from the Region Rally fees. 50% of national officers' expenses shall be paid from the International Rally fees collected. There will be no IBT physical meetings funded, other than the ones at the International Rally. All other IBT meetings will be virtual, at no cost.

Perhaps us poor folk with the old trailers could be eligible for a refundable "Rally Tax Credit" to help offset our costs of attending the rally.

That's what I'm talking about!

Rick,

How did you know that's where I would be heading with this?

If I attend enough rally's under the rules of the "Rally Tax Credit" program in my old trailer, I might even get a check back at the end of the year for more money than I paid for the rally fee's all year!

Enjoy,

That's a bold suggestion, for certain. You have to give it that.

Terrible, but bold.

We attend 3-4 rallies a year, including hosting our own, and simply cannot make them all. Jobs, other hobbies, family, money, etc. I know everyone would agree.

WDCU needs to have some fun with this idea, like we did with the tuxedo thing a couple years back.

I just had a brilliant idea. How about a cash for clunkers program so we can all get Brand new units. and TVs. It will stimulate the economy. Man, I gotta run for congress or the executive commitee or something. But first I will cut more firewood. Sal

So that the IBT proportionally represent the club's memberships and provide a more cost effective structure for the club: Any Region that falls below 600 members shall be dissolved and merged into surrounding Regions. To properly balance the political voting power on the Board, the International Treasurer and Secretary shall no longer be voting members of the board.

The Vintage Airstream Club won't like that! Or maybe they will, if they get the clunkers afterwards.

It's a motion by a few members, I don't think anyone on the IBT will vote for it.

Please remember it's just a motion, doesn't mean it has any support within the IBT or any chance of passing. And it doesn't mean this is how the IBT is thinking. Any member of the club can put forth a motion.

Yes they will have to spend time, reading and voting on it, but I don't see it having any chance of passing.

Of course not. But as AirForum members as well as WBCCI members, how can we pass up the opportunity to heap scorn and ridicule upon the concept once we've been told of it?

You have to admit, they are really really really thinking outside of the box!!

Sometimes, thinking outside the box is good. Sometimes, not so much. Attendance tax as a means of increasing club revenues falls more on the "not so much" side. Some of dwightdi's ideas, more on the good side. Too bad they haven't been submitted as motions and seconded.
