Having taken some time to reflect on my part in this debacle, I've decided I'm not entirely thrilled with my performance. Honestly, why should I even care what rideair does? Beginning right now, I'm giving myself a one-week suspension from the AirForums. See you in a week!

Protagonist - you are always a very helpful member of the forums. So maybe you were a tad overzealous thinking about the rules of the club. It just says you find the value of the club is worth protecting. Not the worst thing we've seen here!

I look forward to your continued contributions to AirForums.

So if you sneak in a nonmember or two or three or whatever and the 500 spaces are filled, you've just shut out dues paying members from attending. Think bigger, not just about yourself. Rules are rules. And are not meant to be broken.

The WBCCI wants people to attend the Rally, and they want people to have a great time. The club is all about the people and not the rules or regulations.

And just for FYI the VIN/SN requirement on the join forms has been removed, so no need to provide a VIN anymore.

You would not be sneaking in a non member as he would have payed his dues and the rally fee, only the actual ownership of the trailer used would have been questionable.
Perhaps rules are not meant to be broken, but anyone who has read the blue book will see a lot that should be eliminated.
At the rally presentation I got the impression that the Site in WV would be adding campsites and would go all out to see that people at least got their electric and water and pump outs would be provided by the site operators if in fact there is a site shortage.

Since I won't be going "Tater" is welcome to the spot I would have occupied.

just because a rule should be eliminated doesn't mean it should be ignored until it is changed. Rules are rules. Change them properly if you disagree. Same goes for laws. Anarchy is the result otherwise.

I usually would never jump in a thread like this, because the "fun potential" is so low, but....

I imagine if you look into it, arguments such as these are the reason fewer people are joining WBCCI, while there are more people buying Airstreams than ever. It's so easy to go to a forum rally, such as Canopener (woot woot) and REALLY enjoy the crap out of it, and not deal with all this hassle... Just my opinion, but I'm betting I'm right.

-Red, backing slowly out of the thread, not looking anyone in the eye...

So what are the major attractions around Lewisburgh that shouldn't be missed?

While I won't be at the rally I do spend a lot of time in WV. Some things that you may find interesting.
Green Bank Radio Observatory. Large Radio dishes coordinated with sites in New Mexico and I think one other

Cass Scenic Railroad.. Narrow gauge railroad with 2 trips lengths

The New River Bridge. That is the longest ,or maybe highest single arch bridge.
Every October one lane is closed for bridge day for base jumpers and other crazy people. I rappelled it one bridge day long ago. Aprox 875 ft to the river.

There is rafting on the New and Gauley rivers, at least in the fall when they lower lake levels and I suspect probably during the summer also.

Summerville Dam. The below Dam area is pretty exciting when water is being released and the kayakers are there.
There are also lots of caving and hiking opportunities

Thats just what comes to mind off the top. A little research will find much more.

added: If you want to travel a little further from the rally Seneca Rocks where they trained the mountain troops for ww II and Spruce knob, the highest point in WV are near each other and could be done on a day trip (on RT 33 near Elkins)

Here is an article from the CNN website today about Greenbank Radio Observatory mentioned in my previous post

Hey Paul
we had two trailers with the same number parked at this years international in vintage, and seemed not to be a problem. It was a member of this forum is whom I am referring to.

Did cause some confusion for the parking crew and the sanitation crew, as I recall.

Yeah, we had a similar small issue with sanitation in Bozeman 2006 when we lent our GT to our friends parents. We just put a letters"A" and "B" next to our numbers

Anyone know if it is possible to get a "day pass" for the event? I am thinking about possibly camping down at Douthat State Park and just driving up.
