I think the only thing being burnt are some logs in the campfire. Burning Man has it's place and the Bash has it's. Neither are related or even remotely similar. If you want to burn an effigy, I suggest you head West, if you want to burn some marshmallow, well East would be the direction you want to head.

well you know what they say, out of the ashes the phoenix is born! The new Birthday Bash in contrast to the old International rally is a new beginning and so many are saying good-bye to WBCCI.

Yes, yes, back on track, the Birthday Bash will be just right for adults and children alike. I was just poking a bit of fun. I'll behave. I think marshmallows might be the better fit for this gal, anyway.

Speaking of wild abandonment it's Mardis Gras (in the East)!!!

But it's the same old story, too. The Birthday Bash that the leaders are planning is located too far from a central area where more could attend. And it's smack in the middle of the wrong season, so people won't go. And only two days of the event are on a weekend, so those who work miss out on most of the fun. Does any of this sound familiar?

How would you propose they get more than two days of the event into a weekend?

To be fair isn't the BDBash being held at Rob's residence? It isn't like someone contracted to hold an event for all the country to attend, albeit many are traveling from afar to be there! I don't think it's a fair representation to compare the failings of WBCCI International with the particulars and limits of someone opening up their home to alot of Airstreamers in the spirit of gathering together.

Lynn you plan the next one. No need to wait until the next year...Let's go to your place. And perhaps that is how hosting evolves and rotates in locality...

No doubt Pahaska will have us another time...

Rob & Company,

I think what Lynn is really saying here is that he is going to quickly step up to hosting a Pacific / Rocky Mountain / Southwestern edition of the Bash, and that it will run concurrently with your Adirondack event, and avoid all the common pitfalls that go along with the timing, location, and logistics, etc. that goes along with holding such an event, and with which he takes exception to your planning and execution!

Ditto most of the other comments by others preceding this one....

Best,

No, I'm not saying anything of the stort about hosting anything. It's just that I recognized the same sorts of things with this rally as I've seen as complaints about WBCCI rallies. End of observation.

Lynn

Best,
If memory serves ( big if) I believe that Lynn has in fact hosted at least one rally in NM at his home before. Perhaps you will want to take a turn if you haven't already.

Yep, we've hosted several rallies, and have a couple more in the works. They're strictly local rallies, some WBCCI, but mostly not. But that's fully beside the point! The point is that there are complaints about the WBCCI, and many of them are absolutely legitimate, but some complaints about the WBCCI, and in particular about the international rally, are for matters that are evidently unavoidable. The evidence is the anti-rally.

You've got me wondering, so I've got to ask. Except for the weekend thing, and the fact that I can't control where you live (how far away you are), the wrong season (how is that - do you want it in December?) and it's FULL by the way, what else makes this sound familiar to a WBCCI event?

There will be kids here - like 50 of them!
It is sold out!
There will be a camp fire each night
It's being talked about and not kept secret
It's low priced
There aren't any meetings
No flag ceremony
No tuxedos

I'm working on the schedule.. I'll be adding things from midnight to 0600, 1800 - midnight, for both Satuday and Sunday... that way I get one whole more day from the weekend (packing 3 days into 2).... for those who are interested to get more fun out of the weekend ( ha - that's a joke!!!).

Ok, what else am I missing... we've got Antsy McClain playing.

Oh yeah - it's FREE if you're coming from 2500 miles or more.

There's a waiting list. Did I say the 79 spots sold out in 10 days

The hosts are not getting mileage reimbursements and the hosts are paying their own way!

There will be a clown for entertainment (at least one, maybe more - but one's professional)

There will be no bull pen.. well, there is a bull pen on the property, but watch where you step.

Fireworks - did I say fireworks, and you don't have to pay and get on a bus to go somewhere's else to see them.

A cool vintage radio display.

Steve, Frank, John, am I missing anything else?

Rob - one of the hosts!

Nothing else, as far as I know, but does that make the observation any less ironic?

Again, I'm as critical as others are of some of the things that the IBT does, especially concerning money. (I also think that Forrest's amendment has some real potential to change a lot of this.)
