I can't believe I'm doing this I must have too much time on my hands or too much snow on the ground keeping me inside reading this stuff.

Please remind me. Didn't we just raise the dues from $55.00 to $65.00 within the last 5 years? So were's the beef?

Have we not been screaming where is the value for the dollar?

I'm watching several threads (again I can't believe I'm going there again. Don't tell my husband he'll divorce me.)

I just need to scream this out loud. Raising due for ANY reason during these times is a VERY BAD idea it has significant impact at the unit level.

IBT didn't lose when Rob et.al left. The UNIT lost!!!!!!!!! IBT does not care. I hate to see people so affected and blindsided by what the IBT does or does not do or see. I hate that it trickles down to have such impact at the Unit level like this.

Robin
I wonder what would happen if I did the kind of stuff I did in the 60-70's. I refuse to pay the increase pay the normal dues and as a silent protest attend my unit rally's anyway. I wonder if they'd have me?

HEY! Who is this Robin chick & how did she steal my() identity?!?

I() know I() said I() would compose an intelligent response to this thread back at post #344, but quite frankly, this sounds like a lot of what I've() heard before and I() could probably nix bits from 73 other posts, piece them together and make them say what I() was going to say anyway. Quite the run-on sentence, huh?

Mid Winter IBT

you must realize we have all the rally amenity's.and who does not like a wine and cheese receipton and happy hour!...but we pay a hefty rally fee too!
I THOUGHT the rally paid for itself??????
and at the Perry, GA Midwinter they at least had a really cool gal that dressed early 60's and sung Leslie Gore! and I missed 3/4 of that, as I NEVER plan to go to any of the enterainment, for obvious reasons
Granted it was not the Rolling Stones or Steely Dan but it was at least out of the swing era)

Speaking of costs, I do think that $75 is a bit much for dues, but it strikes me that our national caravans and rallies seem to be a pretty good deal. I say this because we ran across an ad for a Good Sam rally in South Carolina. Here's some of the info from the ad:

Southern Charm Caraventure
Myrtle Beach SC; Charleston, SC
April 16 - April 25
(all sorts of entertainment)
$3,489 (one RV, two adults)

That seems kind of pricy to me!

A while back I got to wondering about the cost of caravans and calculated the cost per day for several caravans.

The average cost was about $90. per day. Unquestionably cheaper than the commercial offering, but some are still pretty pricey.
Below was a cut and paste from mey spreadsheet so formatting is not the best

Caravan or rally start end #days cost for 2 cost per day


S.E coast spectacular 10/7/2009 11/16/09 40 $3,250.00 $81.25


Yellowhead and more 1/25/2010 03/15/10 49 $5,900.00 $120.41 estimate

Great River Road 9/8/2010 10/07/10 29 $2,100.00 $72.41


Louisiana Cajun Heritage 3/9/2010 03/22/10 13 $780.00 $60.00


American southwest adventure 4/21/2010 06/03/10 43 $3,850.00 $89.53 estimate

fly drive alaska 5/26/2010 06/09/10 14 $1,500.00 $107.14 not inc airfare or rv rental
Alyeska the great land 7/12/2010 09/14/10 64 $6,000.00 $93.75


Autumn Oddesy N39M 9/9/2010 10/03/10 24 $2,400.00 $100.00


Wilder West N39N 9/6/2010 10/08/10 32 $2,400.00 $75.00


Gone to Texas N39Q 9/20/2010 10/23/10 33 $1,900.00 $57.58 estimate

Picture this down east main N39R 5/31/2010 06/17/10 17 $2,900.00 $170.59

We would like a caravan but not if we could travel for a lot less on our own. As far as dues is concerned the increases would put most at $95.00 for dues, wouldn't it? I don't see how we could do the caravans time wise if working, or how we could do the caravans if not working price wise. I would think doing more in less time, though WBCCI says that isn't as good a value, would actually be a better value in our limited circumstance. We would still need to add gas and food money onto that as a very real expense for the event and time off of work. It's relative to expendabile cash for recreation but very much over what we could comfortably do. Perhaps there are others that would like to pay as they go rather than a kitty fee for every excursion.
