Florida Unit 2nd VP

Well things have been moving kind of fast here. After returning from our 33-day trip to Michigan and back we attended two unit rallies. At the first, Vic Smith our outgoing Unit President, asked me to be a candidate for 2nd VP as the person that was nominated had to withdraw, and I showed an interest by speaking up and offering suggestions (that will teach me ). At the membership meeting following that rally, I was elected, and at the unit rally this past few days, I was installed as the new 2nd VP of the Florida Unit.

The installation was pretty entertaining. About an hour before the ceremony, one of my fellow campers asked me if I was going to get dressed for the event. Sitting there in blue jeans, hiking boots, and a t-shirt I said this was it. Well from one trailer came a white dress shirt (too large), another a red tie (people carry these things in their trailers when they’re camping ), and another a WBCCI beret (too small). I looked like a refugee from the WBCCI thrift shop standing up there in my too small hat, too large shirt and tie, blue jeans, and hiking boots, accepting the job .

Unencumbered by “experience” (I’ve only been doing this for a year now) I’m charging off to do good for my unit and the club as a whole . I’m in a very good unit with many forward thinking people, and I have read through many of the threads here as to what everyone thinks the problems are with the club today.

Let me hear your thoughts and advice. Send me a reply or come and see me at the Can Opener, FL State Rally, or Bozeman. I’ll be the one without a tux, but I may have to buy a hat .

Randy

I don’t have any advice but your attitude and wiliness to give it a go sure seem like a big plus. Submitting to the wardrobe change with a smile sure will go a long way into bridging the gap. I do think it was great that the group pulled together to have you properly attired for you induction into office whic means it is important to the unit. I have one word “Pictures”.

Thanks Jim. I did seem important that I was "properly" attired. Pictures were taken. As soon as I get a copy, I'll post it here for all to enjoy.

Hi Randy,
What Jim said X 2! I'm also new to the WBCCI and don't quite get all the formality but understand that I joined this group with my eyes wide open and if change is a priority - it will take time. So in the meantime, I'll play by the rules and possibly work from within if I want to get serious about tweaking the existing rules. First step is to get my Stream campable and start using it. Thanks for stepping up for your unit and getting involved! Congratulations.
