So, I sit here pondering on the last few days events. Frank and I were labeled as QUITTERs and that what we were doing wouldn't work.. we'd be on the outside. Well, I can tell you one thing... it's been nice being on the outside watching the implosion. The blast area hasn't cleared and the BDA is months away to fully calculate. I still have the opinion that it's too bad Leo let them do this.. he shouldn't have let them fill their egos. Now others are saying they are done... about a month too late, Winter IBT already took place. Now, if you'd all done this prior to IBT, the results would have been different - SLAP... ( thanks Zoe')... what was I saying... No they wouldn't...
With Leo being booted, dues raised, still no balanced budget, membership under 6000, and Gillete costing like it does, send the message home now... Do not go to International. If you're already signed up, write in a cancellation and request the rally fee back. How many do they need to break even - 700? Leave em at 500 or less and that'll send a VERY CLEAR message.
Now is the time to send a message.. with you $$$
Another year like last year and they can't survive.
My head hurts.
Is the title Airstream and Avion Owners Club in use by any incorporated entity?
The Airstream Inc. would have a problem with it. You could ask them to license it, but whether they would is something they'd have to answer. Whether their claim to the name as you propose it is available is best answered by an intellectual property lawyer.
