You see, this is where we'll probably just have to disagree. My view is that the current picture is rosy if you're in a neat local unit, as we are! The only thing that keeps it from being a good rosy picture involves actions by the IBT!

So make sure you're in a local unit that you enjoy!

so u really didn't wanna explore the ibt leadership (or lack of it) issues, as your post suggested?

see post #32 for an explanation of this tactic...

i guess this was just another thread BUMP to advertise buying into ONE car on this train wreck.

cheers

Lynn - We (our unit and others in our region) had a buddy rally this past weekend and 28 rigs showed up. This wasn't really a WBCCI rally and only one rig was not an AS. We have been holding this rally for several years now and there are no rules other than to have a good time together. So I sort of agree with you that on the unit level things are very rosey indeed. But we all know that poop flows down hill. It is because of the WBCCI that we have all become good friends and I do hope the club survives so that we will continue to have the history of the club and the recognition. My AS wouldn't be the same without those big red numbers. I have no doubt though that the club is in trouble. And I also no for a fact that most IBT members and others who chair committes are forum members and read what we post. When I was running for Region Office as the non-chossen candidate the interviewing committe had printed out several of my posts on this forum and tried to use them against me. Well needless to say I did not win the nomination because of my beliefs we needed change. Anyway, if you love your unit, support it and hope the current IBT doesn't destroy 'our' great club.

I'm confused, does one group get to wear the Blue Berets facing front & the other face rear?

Good for you, I would not have had a "polite response".

And.....here we have believed that the IBT members don't read the AirForums . I suppose that means that many of us "need not apply"....but, that doesn't keep us from voting. Then, the following quote comes to mind...."It's not the people who vote that count. It's the people who count the votes." (Josef Stalin)

Mike makes the point about how not to win friends and influence people. Sorry - but if you flame someone who is obviously playing unfairly, then you are painted with the same brush. No matter whether you have right on your side.

Greetings,

I admit that I have not been following this thread closely but I have read the first and several other posts. That said, why is this seemingly negative topic receiving such attention? How is this topic relevant to the masses?

Thanks,

Jerry
