WDCU Flag

Here's the image of the WDCU Flag that was just passed. With the black background, red lettering and white image, it is not your normal WBCCI flag. Also, if you notice, there is a flag above the building that "could" easily have the pirate logo inserted. I wonder if we thought of that up front in the design? One will never know. I hope you like it.

I have only been a member for about 4 months now.

Question: Could an entire Unit unanimously do something symbolic that would get the attention of everyone? For example, could an entire Unit, unanimously, refuse to send in their dues; secede; parade into the International together and then leave to a satellite rally; some other type of civil disobedience? (P.S. I'm not a big fan of the cream pie on the SOB windshield idea.)

Thor, Airstream and the WBCCI IBT are ALL numbers driven.

We are those numbers.

Thank you for your response and passion.

I think I agree with you on most core points

One more dumb question please: What is this about a $1.3 million kitty? In all things, political or not, the best way for me to focus on an issue is to follow the bling.

That's how much is currently in the WBCCI coffers.

Thank you. I kind of figured that. I assume it comes from our $75. I apologize for the cryptic wording of the question above.

Who holds the purse strings? How often does it get audited? Investments? A 50 year old club and there's only $1.3 M? Operating expenses? Is there a balance sheet we can get a hold of for say the last 20 years or so?

Numbers. I need numbers.

I think that it is extremely shortsighted on the part of International President Shafer to state publicly that those who disagree with him (mal-contents) should drop their membership in WBCCI. I think it is time for the WBCCI Borard of Directors to wake up.

Did he actually say that? When and where was it said?

I have seen some posts regarding Past Int'l President Franklin's comments.

Now all this time, I guess I sort of thought you were just another mal-content, but here I find I'm agreeing with just about everything you say.

I'm one of those fortunate enough to be in a unit (Texas Highland Lakes Unit) that is fun, vibrant, and growing by leaps and bounds. We're sponsoring the Texas Vintage Rally at the end of the month. I am very satisfied with the contact I personally experience with WBCCI, but I've never attended an International and only one Regional. I do not; however, want SOB's in the club and I voted along with the preponderance of our unit against last year's name change. Keep up the good work.

I have listened to most of the tapes from Perry. It is not easy for me to hear all the details, most of that due to my hearing problems and some to the quality of the tapes. I was most interested in the report from Renee Ettline the Communications Liaison of the club. It is on this audio that Past President Jim Frankin suggests that folks who do not like the funny hats and jackets get a winabago and join another club. A very unfortunate remark by Jim. While some of the board were supportive of the job that Renee and the others are doing, many were critical of the report. Because she only had 412 items from members and several members had multiple items on the list the feedback from the members was concidered by some to be a non issue.

I suggest that everyone who has issues and areas that they think needs to be improved send an email to Renee at cl@wbcci.org .

Hi Leo,
I was pretty sure it was Jim Franklin that made those statements at the time of my post and have since confirmed it.Just didn't want any misinformation out there on this issue.

Thanks for doing this Leo. It's a good idea to quote him exactly. He also made a comment about all the "lies" on the internet about WBCCI, though he didn't give any examples. It would be good to have his exact words and the context in which they were spoken.

The most interesting suggestion during Renee's presentation came from the floor (I think). It was a way the club could double it's membership right now.

The speaker stated that since most memberships are 2 people (husband and wife), we simply count the number of people and not family units.
