That would be up to your Region Officers as the receivers of the newsletter.

Have any regions posted the letter on their web site?

Charlie -

I think it is great that the leadership hopes that by increasing the readership of the BB by placing it online, perhaps the increase in readership will result in more advertising dollars for the club! Good thinking!

Oh - here's an idea along those lines: Suppose the club figures a way to get advertising revenue from its web site!

Pat

Ooo...

As a new Airstream owner I was very interested in having the opportunity to see the club newsletter up close and personal.

And, having read much of the "ballyhoo" on this site, and others, about the WBCCI this gave me one more "thing" to use in my evaluation of the organization from the perspective of, "Is it for me?".

From what I have seen in the numerous photos the WBCCI membership is definitely too OOO for me.

Old

Overweight

Outdated

Geesh, one would think that a club that represents the marque for a major RV manufacturer would present itself through its major publication as having members from more than the "Geritol" set.

"Start the bubble machine" must be the first words at all of the meetings.

To Buckaroo,
The club is structured to give the most benefits to the people who have time to partake of them. That means, there will be a predominance of newly retired people in the club. If you join and partake of the shorter weekend local benefits during your working years, you will eventually age into being one of those old people who get to enjoy the longer events that the national club provide. That is what happened to us.

I second what Dwight said.. I Joined in 1972 and attended the first Bozeman Rally in 73 So I can identify with the problems of the younger members. I was 31 at the time.
None the less i have developed friendships with older members that go back that far. Although some of those folks are now in there 90's we still keep in touch.
It would be good to see what is going on on the local level. The WDCU has many younger members with families as does the Vintage Intra club
