I too am against some of the politics that goes with WBCCI. However, I would not have the great friends and gone on the many trips and rallies if I were not a member. We have a great, active unit in SC and I love it. I will also be attending my 1st Forums rally in April which I am sure I will also enjoy. Try the club and see what you think. If the unit you select isn't for you, try another one. The club is responsible for getting people together and allowing us to meet one another no matter where we may be.

If you can't do #2, there's always a third option...

#3 Make new friends that already have Airstreams!

Cara,

You are certainly not too young. Welcome to the wonderful world of Airstream. We are certainly enjoying the memories we are building with our children, and look forward to many years of them yet before the head out on their own. Nthey are both all ready talking of the day when they have their own Airstream.

Safari Streamer is absolutely right. You can have a great time w WBCCI rallies, trips and caravans as well as Forum rallies. We do both and have for many years. We have made good friends with both WBCCI and Forums. Our SC unit is very special. Get past the politics and see for yourself. I am very happy being part of both.

This is an interesting thread....

WBCCI isn't for me but I'd never warn anyone off from trying it and I'm surprised that Travel Bird encountered the comment.

The pro-club people will be pleased to know that I've been approached on a number of occasions, formally and informally, about joining (active recruitment; I like that) and I've always met their requests with a polite "no thank you".

The anti-club people, whilst expressing their opinions, shouldn't be actively discouraging people - let them make their own minds up.

Darn, that sounds like a moralizing lecture - I'm just saying that I don't mind being asked and I cherish my right to say no as much as the right of people to say yes.

Thus endeth the sermon!

Amen, Brother Toad! It didn't sound like a lecture at all, just a very considerate approach. I'm really satisfied with my membership, but don't actively recruit fellow Airstreamers. I will gladly give information if asked about the club. We would probably get more questions if we put those red numbers on our Airstream.

We're members of the Pensacola, FL unit. We haven't been able to camp with them much due to aging parent issues, but we intend to do so in the future. These folks welcomed us with open arms and were very helpful as we were getting to know our vintage AS. I say, at least give it a try.

Just a thought but if everyone who is positive posted under a different forum thread that was positive, the negative thread heading would stop being bumped up. Be proactive instead of reactive and the WBCCI will get a better rep.
